Lending An Ear

While taking part in a neighborhood yard sale, which I mentioned here, I met many nice people. One in particular stands out. I didn't catch her name, but she shared, or OVER-shared, just about everything else.
She was a lovely woman, probably around 79 or 80 years old. She was out for her daily walk wearing her protective visor and her "just came from the eye doctor" sunglasses.
While looking through my offerings, for whatever reason, she decided to tell me the story of her great love. "Oh what a guy he was! Boy, he was a sharp dresser! Always wearing a suit and a hat... So charming! And boy was he good in the sack!"
Um... what?
"***giggle giggle*** We could be on the bus going downtown, I'm all dressed up, he looks so handsome. The bus would go over a bump and I would look at him and say 'That really got me in the mood'. Next thing I know, he's pulling the line to stop the bus. He grabs my hand and off we go to a hotel!"
Um...ewwww!
I just keep smiling and nodding my head while this lovely woman shares her adventurous romps with me. 'Why-oh-why is she doing this?', I keep saying to myself.
And why-oh-why isn't someone else coming along to save me?!?
FINALLY my neighbor Bonnie arrives with the infamous Broken Halo in hand and that's when I knew I was saved.
And boy, did I ever need that beer.

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
