Things That Make You Go Hmmm … or Mmmm …. by Deb Mia

I love writing posts, but there are times when a picture says a thousand words …


Really, the hair gods spared no one … and yes, I did notice that my seventh grade hair barely fits into the frame of the picture … thank you for noticing!

Of course I have conveniently excluded about, oh 26 years of bad haircuts as well, but there’s a limit to the amount of self-imposed humiliation one is expected to endure … and remember: these are my class photos, where you get gussied up so you look your best. I’ll leave it to your imagination about how I looked on the other 364 days in the year…

And, if you want to find out what’s up with that final photo, you’ll have to click here.

  1. What a cutie. I loved the sleek look you were working in Grade Three. Those dozen frosted sugar cookies are mine, by the way. If you wonder who’s making multiple submissions in that contest, I’m the culprit.

  2. Very, very clever and — at certain ages — adorable as well. 😉 Does anyone else recognize the fact that Mia has one of those faces that never change? And, yes, it’s a good thing!

  3. I wouldn’t dare put on any of my school pictures. My mom was one of the ones that always trimmed my bangs the day before the pictures… so of course, they were way too short…. 🙁

  4. I am definitely realizing that life is too short not to love your hair! Has anyone seen The Secret where Bob Proctor is kissing himself and saying how much he just loves himself (for those of you who haven’t seen it, Bob Proctor is this grandfatherly philosopher, kind of funny and wacky, very sweet, lots of wise words)? It’s adorable. I’m going to start doing that with my hair, blowing kisses into the mirror and giving it sly winks and approving nods when nobody’s looking …

  5. Aww…you were so cute Mia! None of your pictures are as bad as my yearbook picture from last year, when I put on too much eyeliner and didn’t want to smile because of my braces and I ended up looking like a druggie!

  6. Well, your pictures certainly beat mine from my childhood–especially the couple of years with semi-cat-eye glasses! Oh, how I hated those. As soon as I was allowed, I got contacts and never wore my glasses for decades.

    I liked how I could see your daughter in the photos of you! That was quite sweet.

    And I really enjoyed the content of The Secret, though some of how it was put together as a movie seemed not the greatest production effort. But I really like the concept of setting intentions and the idea of the Law of Attraction–that if you are focused on how bad things are, the universe or God will cooperate and bring you more bad things, while if you are focused on what you appreciate and are grateful for, the universe will bring you more to appreciate and be grateful for!

    As for Bob Proctor, I think he would make a great tele-evangelist! He cracked me up.
