When I was in second grade, I had a lisp. With several months of speech therapy, I overcame it. But the memory lasts for ever.
And so does a school picture...
The photographer asked me to say "flowers". Yes, flowers.
With an 's' on the end.
So I cheerfully said, "flowers". (I often say things cheerfully.) Which meant my tongue was completely between my teeth, lisp on display. And... click.
Thank God for retakes.
So here's my recovery second grade picture (sure wish I still had that funny one!)
And this is super fun: My school, Crooked Billet Elementary, was built on the site of one of the battles of The Revolutionary War. There's even a cannon on the front lawn! Every May 1st, the whole school celebrates Crooked Billet Day. The kids dress as colonial men and women, sing patriotic songs, and make speeches about liberty and freedom. So here's me in second grade on Crooked Billet Day.
And here's me now with the hubster! (Just so you don't have an image of me with an apron from this moment on.)
So join in, friends! :)
