“This is me, posing for my father on a Sunday morning, shortly after he separated from my mom. He let me wear whatever I wanted and do whatever I wanted with my hair (opportunities that I made the most of).

Jen was so filthy I think my mom burned her nightshirt when we got home.”

In my eagerness to have my facial masterpiece captured on film, I managed to pop up during a conversation that most likely consisted of literature or world travels.”

“This was from one of my dance recitals – my dance teacher chose me to be in the older girls’ dance, where they were spiders. I was dressed like a fly and buzzed around the stage until they trapped me with a white parachute (their spider web). Possibly the most embarrassing photo of me ever…”
