Well, it is already that time again and this time, I'm not waiting until the last minute! It is time to join everyone for Alicia's Friday Photo Flashback! I came across the picture I'm sharing just a few days ago and thought it would be perfect to share with you all. I love it--even if I have that stupid "boy" haircut.
My mom married her high school math teacher...I never had a math teacher I'd consider dating, let alone marry, but maybe things were different back in the day. Anyway, he continued teaching at the high school and when I was came along, I became part of the school, too. I was the mascot at the football games and had my own little version of a uniform. (Look how cute those little white gloves are...)
This is an old, old picture (42+ years old), so I think it definitely counts as pre-digital!
A funny addendum to the story? I was sitting in the waiting area of a restaurant when I was in my early 20s and I overheard a conversation that a bunch of "grown-ups" were having about their highschool reunion. I quickly figured out which school it was and my interest was piqued...it was that school. Then someone said, "Hey, whatever happened to that teacher that married that student?" The conversation buzzed around that topic for a minute and I couldn't resist...I jumped in with: "Are you talking about Teacher X marrying Student Y?" They couldn't figure out how I knew about something like that. I smiled and said, "I happened to them." It was pretty darned funny.
Lesson learned: Be careful who you're sitting around when you begin gossiping...you just never know!
