My friend FFD (or was it FFW?) took this at our friend Jon's engagement party. I was boiling [and sweating] to death, and much prefer taking photos to being in them (unlike my sister's family and SIL, I was not blessed with the ability to smile at a camera, let alone be photogenic), but this wasn't as terrible as most pictures. And I'm a guy, so I really don't care all that much [thank God!]. :) It's one of the only half-decent pictures of the three of us together that we have, actually. Anyways, enjoy!
Oh, best funny story from the engagement party: I notice that sitting on the couch is a little girl who looks quite familiar... but a little older than I remember, wearing glasses. She's Jon's little sister (8 years old?), and I used to be at their house quite a bit when I was single (and even a couple of times after). I look her in the eye and start a conversation...
Ez: Hey, Becca!Ouch.
B: (quizzical look)
Ez: Remember me?
Ez: You don't remember me?
B: Nope. I don't think
Ez: I'm Jon's friend.
B: I only remember one of Jon's friends.
Ez: How about this - imagine me half the size I am now. Now do you remember me?
B: Ummm.... no.
Ez: You really don't remember me?
B: No. I only remember one of Jon's friends.
Ez: And not me? Well, who DO you remember?
B: It doesn't matter. You're not him.
Ez: Well, try me. I want to know who you do remember.
B: You're not him!
Ez: Well, what's his name?
B: What's the difference? I don't remember you.
Ez: Well, what's his name anyway?
B: His name is Ezzie.
Ez: (OOF) (laughing) I'M Ezzie.
B: No you're not!
Ez: Yes, I am!
Ez: Really, I am.
B: Well, you don't look like Ezzie.
Ez: Look again.
B: (peers intently) Okay, maybe a little.

Cute Family. I am a giver so I am going to teach you how to smile at a camera.ReplyDelete
Just before they click the shutter think of the cavs winning a title, but not for too long because your smile will soon turn to a frown. ;)
What a beautiful family (you included Ezzie)!ReplyDelete
