time for some fun, ladies!! note the title of this post is laugh WITH me which is different than laughing AT me. oh, believe me, i have no trouble at all laughing at myself but i hope you'll all feel a bit of empathy for this old gal as she pokes fun at herself!! the above photo was taken during a work luncheon to honor the last day with our spring intern. i've cropped it so i'm the only one visible. notice anything unusual about me? notice how i'm clutching my purse like one of those old ladies on sitcoms? you know the one. she sits grasping her purse in her lap, in constant fear of having some random stranger whiz by and steal her purse. when i first saw this photo i thought "omg, i'm THAT old lady!!!"!!!!! next thing you know i won't be able to stay out after dark or drive myself to the grocery. hee hee this totally cracked me up and my co-worker barb and i are still laughing about it.
ok, so now you're all talking to yourselves, saying "what in the world is she doing??" is she exercising in the back yard? nope. is she trying to fly? definitely not. is she waving down the neighborhood ice cream trolley? good guess (i love ice cream) but no again! here's the story on this series of hilarious self-portraits!! the morning after i bought my new nikon bill and i were having coffee in the back yard. he was playing with it and trying to test the rapid burst to see how many pictures it would take and how fast. he suggested i jump up and move around in the back yard so he could snap a few shots. there are about 20 of these ridiculous photos. funny how bill had this wickedly sly look on his face the whole time he was shooting. i'm sure this was quite funny in person.
so there you have it, folks . . . proof of my aging dorkiness!! i've always been a dork; i suspicion it is much less cute at this age. oh, well! i'm still young at heart!
