I’ve been flipping through an old photo album that I’ve had since I was a teenager. Of course, all of the photos in it are from film cameras, so I thought I’d scan a few.
Yes, that’s me at the tender age of 14 ! I was actually bullied that year in high school, and decided to take up Tae Kwon Do for self defense purposes. The irony of it all is that I was actually bullied by the Tae Kwon Do teacher! He made us do knuckle push-ups on a concrete floor and humiliated me in front of the whole class when I struggled with my left and right sides.
I’m that slender lad in the Levis T-shirt and comfortable green pants. Hard to believe I was ever that slim ! I used to be a competitive swimmer, and this was our annual picnic, circa 1987.
My brother was a very good competitive Ballroom Dancer. I was just in it for the girls and the friendships. Out of the two, I made a lot of friends! That’s me with my dancing shoes on. I think I was doing the waltz at the time.
Like the trendy shirt? Well, it was trendy in 1991 ! Not that I’ve ever been much of a fashion-hound. Hard to believe it was so long ago.
I do have more, but maybe another time…
