This morning I’ve had the piss taken out of me from all sides ‘cos one of my girlfriends, Shazz, just slapped up a verrrry old piccie of me on Facebook.
Check it out:
Yessiree, I was a super-geeky Children o’ the Corn type of kid.
This piccie was snapped when I was 9 years old and in Std. 2. This was a few months before I learned to put in contacts (with a broken arm, nogal) and two years after I got my ears pinned back at 7. I would also go on to endure a horrible experience with headgear when I turned 12, which I only had to wear at night, thank God.
So ja, I know all too well what its like to live on the not-so-pretty side of the fence and trust me, it wasn’t all champagne cocktails, goodie bags and feeling up Ryk Neethling… But now that it is (nyhahaha!), I’m loving every minute of it. So suck it!
‘Little Miss Sunshine’.
P.S. Note that, despite being a lightie, I’d watched enough Miss South Africa pageants to know how to pull a ‘zexy leg’ pose for the camera. So proud…
