Enjoy Them Today... And for a Lifetime!

Max had picture day a couple weeks ago. His school does picture day old style: Your parents pick and pay for the package they want, the photographer gives everyone a 10-cent black comb, one picture is snapped, and two weeks later a raft of those pictures are sent home.

And yes, Max, who has the most beautiful smile and infectious laugh in the world, freezes up horribly when he's told to smile for the camera. And yes, he and Tommy have been going through my old jewelry from the 80s and 90s and wearing it around the house. And yes, Max was overdue for a haircut. And yes, he recently got a silver cap as the result of our being negligent in the flossing arena. All of this I knew.

And yet nothing prepared me for the 8 X 10 glossy that greeted me when I opened his homework folder:

"Tell us what you think!" states the envelop containing 25 -- 25! -- of these photos. "We'd love to know what you think of your school portraits."
And I'd love to tell you. Darn tootin'.

Poor Max! That picture is BEGGING to be Photoshopped. With only a little effort, for example, that chain could be styled into an old-school Flavor Flav clock.

Ohhh. . . geez. . . Hmmmm. . . . well, he's only in the 1st grade. . . lots of school pictures yet to come and it can only improve from here. My question is, what did Max think of it?

Max always looks good to me, even when it makes me laugh. Leneta

OK, this IS the best school photo EVER. It begs to be part of a wider campaign, the product for which I haven't nailed down yet...

Oh, my gosh, this is hilarious. Too bad my Fake Fotos contest is over because I think Max would've won it, hands-down. He's too cute. And that chain just sets everything off.

Love it! :)

The only thing that would make this photo better is if you had it hanging above your sofa in a big faux gold frame--stair-stepped above photos of T as the riverboat gambler and S in some fun manifestation--in the manner of 60 and 70 year ranch house dwellers across the Midwest.
