Ahh memories

This is one of my favorite pictures. It got a tad stretched and now we look thick and beefy(I mean...check out my arms! whoa), I still like it though. It is my older sister and I.

The reason I like it is for what you can't see. You cant see that we are sitting on top of a round hay bale. You can't see that we giggled like we were 4 years old when we were trying to climb said hay bale. In short, this picture revives a memory, and that memory makes me smile.

Isn't it funny how memories can change your mood? For instance, I heard a story once that there was a woman who had survived the sinking of the Titanic. Some years later she was dining with a friend when she suddenly relived the fear of that night, she started to shake and cry. She realized later that it was because the restaurant was playing one of the songs that had been played while the ship went down. Brains are weird.

Here is another picture that changes my mood. This one is of...some little farm second grade. She had licked her lips until the were so chapped that her bottom lip looked like something reminiscent of Bubba from Forrest Gump.

I can almost hear her talking about "Srimpin."

*Oh, and on a side note, the photographer told me, I mean told that farm kid, that she looked like a "fruit basket." Wow, thanks guy, that's nice.*

And another thing...why do my bangs start halfway back my scalp? Half of my hair was involved in the making of those bangs.

My brother keeps this picture in his wallet, because when he is having a bad day he likes to look at it. And laugh. Hysterically.

On my birthday he sent me a text message with a picture of this picture, just in case I was letting my special day go to my head. That'll bring you down real quick. Thanks Ev.
