I also took the "worst school picture EVER". (Note to self: Never wear pigtails on school picture day unless you want to look like Pippi Longstockings and have people talk about it for years to come.) The below picture was my SPRING picture (therefore, not worst picture ever) because I can't seem to find the really bad one. Really. I can't. I tried. But, I think Mom hid it somewhere far, far away. It didn't even make it into the scrapbooks.
I meant to make a post later with the really awful one in it. But, I forgot. While looking through old blog photos for my Google Plus account earlier, I rediscovered the above one and remembered. Finally. The aforementioned "worst school picture EVER" was a part of a conversation that I had with Des yesterday, and he has been wanting to see it (probably so he could hold it over my head for the rest of my life). But, since I'm a glutton for punishment and really don't care what my seven year old self used to look like way back in 1997, I thought I'd find it and show it to him. And then I realized that I really should post it on my blog if I ever found it.
So, without further adieu....
"The Worst School Picture EVER"
I think it's a combination of the overactive pigtails, the poofy sleeves, the ginormous lacy collar, the 90s floral pattern and the humongous pink ponytail holders.
