One item on my list while we are on vacation is to have the DH take some close-ups of me, maybe along the shore of Lake Superior or with some waterfall as a backdrop.
I need a nice picture of me to send to the ACFW for use in September. Small problem is, I never like pictures taken of me. I always look goofy. I always wish I had the capability to Pho-tox my picture, erase the double chin, lift the cheekbones, straigthen and whiten the smile...a hundred things.
Actually, there are two photos of me that I like. One is my wedding picture, which I won't send them, because that would be...silly.
The other is my school picture from my junior year in high school. I was having, for once, a good hair day, and God had given me a clear complexion for that day at least. I had on a favorite blouse, and the background was blue instead of that institutional, this-is-your-mugshot gray they always seemed to use in every other school picture.
I thought about sending that one in. Then I thought of the comments that would be made.
"Did you see her at the conference?"
"I haven't run into her yet? Wonder where she is?"
"Well, I haven't seen her, but look, there's her mother sitting over there."
Nope, better just see what Peter and Lake Superior can do for me.
