I have a feeling my flashback pictures are not going to be the greatest quality for a while. I have resorted to taking pictures of pictures from my scrapbook. It's blurry. I know. Just go with it.
I find great joy in this picture. Only because each and every person in this picture is just growing out of that really awkward early teen puberty stage. Anyway, if you can find me, you win a prize. Yes, I know it is blurry, but click the picture to blow it up. Take your most educated guess and post a comment. No cheating and looking at other people's answers.
Anyway, this was Monster Mash 1997. My date was Kevin Davis. None of us were 16 at this point, and so we had to have our parents drives us. And of course, my mom had the "take home" shift. Yep, that means I had my first awkward door step scene with my mom parked 20 feet away. I was mortified. I think it has ruined me for life and I will label this as the one single event that steamed rolled itself into a life time of singleness. So now, when I run into people that I haven't seen in a long time and they go, "why aren't you married?" I will launch into this story and they will wish they had never asked.
I don't remember much from this dance other than that fact that we had those dog tags made specifically for our dates. Mine probably said, "Natalie + Kevin". I wonder if I have it lying around somewhere?
