here i am on my preschool picture day, and clearly, i was ballllllin' in my denim and bunny print overall dress. thanks to the date written on the back of the photo, i can say with certainty that this picture was take the month before my 5th birthday. i'm pretty sure age 5 was the point at which my personality and attitude were permanently fixed. let me explain: don't be fooled by my little smile, i had just pinched the little boy beside me in line for lifting up my dress and i received a time-out. it was all worth it for me though, because i remember the little boy crying and telling me i was mean. that taught the little effer not to lift up my bunny dress. men start early, it seems. and see those splotches on the photo?? it's spaghetti sauce. i know this because the picture sits in my mother's kitchen, the glass in the photo was broken when someone carelessly dropped me, and she clearly doesn't love me enough to regularly windex my photos.
