Photo Follow-Up

Against my better judgment I've decided to succumb to the requests in the comments here.

Superdad said I shouldn't. "Why embarrass yourself?" he reasoned.

He's right, of course. So, I won't. I'll embarrass us both. Here we are circa 1999. Ahhh, the memories. Aren't we just the coolest? Totally.

Wasn't Superdad a studly, single college dude?

This picture has always mortified Superdad. Mor-ti-fied. I'm sure within seconds of me posting this my phone will ring. But don't fret over me folks; we have caller ID.

As explanation, there were four other people there drinking those bottles of wine and we did drink them over a civilized dinner that involved real food and real cooking. And, hey, we were in college.

To assuage any fears that we may have ended up as miscreants, let now put those to rest. Here we are just a few, short years later and, in this picture Superdad has a law degree. Well, that and a wife and two kids. So yes, even stupid, irresponsible college kids have to grow up sometime.

Let me explain my mortification.


Supernana (Supermom's mom): "so, what does this guy your dating look like?"

Supermom: "Oh I have a picture right here. He's the guy kissing me and holding three empty bottles of wine."

Supernana: "Oh ..."

My mortification only grew after we were married and I learned that Supernana liked to share pictures with everyone in the family.

This was my first impression on the whole dang family.

Supper will be interesting tonight!

it's me, Val said...

Oh the memories . . . Are they not the best?! You look amazing in the bottom pic, Cait!

And they all lived happily ever a very (lucky) charmed existence.

Regardless of that picture-- You won us over right away, Joe, after we met you!!

I think you've only managed to embarrass Superdad, as you look adorable in both pics. Esp. the last. I love the story behind the first impression!

It took quite a bit of self control to not scan in some of MY embarrassing pix of you and then post a link to my blog. You want embarassing...

"Oh ..." lol. I can hear it now. I'm sure it was followed by a polite complement though ;)

At least it was wine. If that was my college picture I'd be carry Boone's Farm or Natural Light. Talk about mor.ti.fied. :)
