I unintentionally made N@ pee her pants

First, for anyone who doesn't know: I cracked, and since sometime last week, I have been on facebook.
Next, I made the mistake of posting a goofy picture from high school on a facebook page about my high school. Already, my friend Doug and N@ have seen it and commented on it. They're both 15+ years younger than me, and neither of them went to Iroquois Falls Secondary School. So tighten your Depends, cuz here it is:

Doug said he would bet that the kid in the pic has a Dreamboat Annie T-shirt. I replied that I don't remember having the shirt, but I almost wore out the grooves on the Dreamboat Annie album, and now have it on CD, too.
N@ said "BWAAAAA----HAHAHAHAHAHAH PLEASE POST THIS ON YOUR BLOG! PLEASE PLEASE!!!! YOU MUST SHARE THE JOY!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"
The T-shirt actually says "Bob McIntyre for Student Council". It was towards the end of Grade 10, it was my first campaign, and it worked. I spent the next three years on Student Council, including one as vice-president and one as president (Ontario had Grade 13 back then). I also had posters all over the school, and my buddies all wore homemade buttons that said "Vote Bob". Hey, it was 1974 -- there was no such thing as Powerpoint presentations or promotional videos. I hand-lettered the T-shirt, the posters and the badges.
Alright, let's see YOUR embarrassing high school pictures on YOUR blogs.

You look like the guy other kids (not me) used to stuff into lockers. Did you ever get stuffed into a locker, Bob?

JB said...

a) Thank you for that amusing moment in my otherwise mundane day.

b) No, I won't be posting any high school pictures on my blog.

c) You look like a guy that I once stuffed into a locker.

Nah, despite the pencil neck, I was a chubby kid and wouldn't fit in a locker. But I WAS the practice dummy for the school's provincial champion wedgie team.

Funny you should post pictures of yourself in your younger days. I actually picked up a few pics from my parents house this past weekend of me when I was just a wee little kid.

They sure bring back some cool memories.

Newsguy Bob said...

Come on, Maria, share some of those pics. The excuse that you don't have a scanner is not good enough. Actually, the pic of me is a picture of the picture that I took with my digital camera. That's why it's kind of whited out in the top left corner -- it's from the flash.

CLAS-SIC!

OH MY GOD!

Ma Horton said...

In my own words ...clASSic ...

Maria said...

Actually I do have a scanner.

I just don't want you guys to think I grew up on a freakin' farm, cause when everyone else had a dog or a cat as a pet I had chickens, and now I have the pictures to prove it.

Don't ask long story!

Newsguy Bob said...

What's the big mystery? The chickens started out as pets, and ended up as souvlaki.

Opa!

Bobby, if you look on my facebook page, there is an album of pics from days gone by...
