And this is me with the whole class. I thought I was cool not smiling.”

The Stoic Preschooler

“When the teacher laughs while handing you the picture packet and says they tried everything they could, you know you’ve got a winner. When asked ‘Lilly, why didn’t you smile?’ Her response was simple: ‘I don’t like school and I don’t like to smile.’ And that will tell you everything you need to know about this 4-year-old.”

I’m With The Band

“Circa 1984. Dad felt my school band photo failed to capture the spirit of my role in the North Stafford High School marching band, so he decided to stage a photo of me in my uniform…in the woods…in a chair that just happened to be there…without my sax. I think I look like the young regent of Sherwood Forest, perhaps its constable, given the bobby hat. In the truest sense of the term, this is an awkward family photo.”
