Flashback Friday

These are some of my best friends in the whole world! But we haven't always been friends, so I thought for Flashback Friday I would talk about how I became friends with two of them.

Becoming friends with Annie (whose face happens to be cut off in this picture - sorry!) happened as fast as her crush on my brother Derek. We've all been 14 before, do I need to explain more?

And then came Jo Anne (the bride). She and Annie were always best friends, so when I came into the picture, I don't think Jo Anne liked me very much. But surprise! She invited me to her 15th birthday party via Annie.

We pulled up to her house and while we were unloading our bags, Annie turned to me and said, "Oh by the way, Jo Anne didn't actually invite you. But I'm sure she would have..."

That made for an awkward evening to say the least.

It all ended up okay in the end though because Jo and I bonded a month later over our mutual distaste with Annie hanging out with me Derek all the time. So while this situation turned out ok in the end, I have learned a valuable lesson. I don't go to parties unless I know I'm invited!

P.S. This was in no way directed at Tory and Jody...

P.P.S. I know what you're thinking. That I can't possibly post a "Flashback Friday" without including an embarassing adolescent picture. Well, you're right.
P.P.P.S. Should my next Flashback Friday be about yoga?

You DO NOT have that picture.....I'm sure you CAN'T have that picture.....What if I post that picture first?

So when the next person gets married do I finally get to be in the wedding? You guys do know that a Matron of Honor can be a good thing, right?

Oh wait, I think Jennifer P. is the only one left.....I might have her number.....

Not that I'm bitter or anything, just lonely.

I have to admit that I had not noticed that it was not Friday.

Rustin said...

Darn. I was planning on not going to work tomorrow because I thought today was Friday.

Brits said...

Cole - I DO have that picture! And be bitter all you want, but was I YOUR bridesmaid when you got married? NOOOOO.

I explained the Friday thing in an earlier post. I have to alliterate, but I never remember to when it's actually Friday. So my Flashback Fridays will be on any day EXCEPT for Fridays. :)

I love the flashback friday idea! And the embarrasing pictures... isn't that early teen age so awkward!

I like those strategically placed pockets on your boobs. Kind of weird and probably painfully distracting to all the 15 year old boys around.

Hahaha! looking at old pics just makes me laugh. I think Annie was the reason most all of us were friends, although I think we ended up friends because of German and once you found out I wasn't so scary after all. :o) Was I the only one that didn't have a crush on your brothers?
