The Girl I Used To Be....


I came across this photo in my daily blog readings and had to laugh.  Switch out the face of this girl for mine, and this picture could have totally been taken in 1978...probably right through 1987 and in my family photo albums.  As a young girl with fear who didn't let it stand in her way, I had balls.  I had guts.  I had gumption. 

I was the girl that in the summer between the 6th and 7th grades, I went over to a boy's house to confront him and ask him what another girl had that I didn't.  What made him like her more than me....because for the life of me I just couldn't see it.  When that poor kid couldn't put two words together to give me an answer, I decided that he  was too stupid and not good enough for me and dropped it from that day forward. 

I often wondered what happened to that girl...she shows up every once in a while, but only when she's forced to. The truth is I know where she's hiding.  And I know she's been waiting for me to bring her back out and take life back by the balls.

  1. I really like this post. I was entertained, not just by the picture. You entertained me with your story. I never heard of a girl going to boy's house.

    I read your recent post. It is not like you. Great story.

    Interesting person.
