Blast from the Past...

My mother had me help her reorganize all our photo albums a while back. She showed me this photo that I had forgotten about and whilst reminiscing upon good memories from Disneyland, I came upon one shocking realization.

No...not that Belle looks like she's been drugged or that the guy behind us has the unfortunate circumstance of picking that shirt to go to an amusement park in...

This was me at 14.

That's right... FOURTEEN. And before you say it UB, let me say it for you..."my poor poor dad, must be why he kept the shotgun loaded in the hall closet till I turned 21".



Not much has changed. I feel like calling up dead ancestors (and of course my mother) and thanking them for the good genes. Just goes to show what good Filipino food and lots and lots of milk can do. LOTS.

I'll be sure to send them the plastic surgery and chiropractic bills too...

Please. No more posts whereby you discuss being 14 years old and your blossoming sexuality. There's too big an ick factor there. Lord...your poor father. It's a wonder that he didn't lock you in the basement until you turned 32.

Did you just say, "Lots of milk"? ;-)

My sister-in-law was really gifted in the boob department too, but she had terrible back pains from it so she had breast reduction surgery about two years ago. Kinda made me glad for once that I got blessed with little cupcake titties.

My daughter will be 13 at the end of the month. I already told her that she can't date until she's 30.

I should just refrain from commenting altogether. :p

You're right, not much has changed. You still look a lot like you did back then. It's definitely a Filipino thing. We just look younger than we really are. My co-workers just made a comment today about my age. They think I'm still in my mid to upper 20's. My oldest niece just turned 14 recently and my sister said boys are calling the house already. Uh-oh.

True story here. One of my friends from childhood "blossomed" in the summer between 6th grade and Jr High. Kids being mean, lot's a stuffing her bra jokes were being made. She grabbed me by the wrist and drug me into the girls lockeroom, lifted her shirt up and said "See? Go tell all the other boys!"

We laughed our ass off about that at our 25 year high school reunion!

You have ample bosoms? I never noticed! (so full of it)

Alexis was laughing her butt off because she "blossomed" before most and was called to the office at her catholic school to discuss the necessity of bras.
