Only after we stop to look at the pictures we take do I realize that I am either a goofball, or I just do stupid things...not sure which one it is really...If I had a penny for everytime the expression "Grow up!" was aimed in my direction...I've even been accused of being a bad influence on others..."You're a teacher, you should always be aware of how you carry yourself in front of your students." It's not the students they should worry about!!You'd look at these pictures and immediately peg me for a "center of attention" type, but that is so far off the mark...been called an entertainer...even that's a stretch. Now that I think about it, perhaps the most accurate title or comparison is simply "You're an Uda". (Feel free to shoot me when I start telling Dad's "Wun Hung Lo" joke)Maybe it's a certain level of insecurity or something that forces me, rather than posing for a normal picture, to make some odd face or pull some shutter-beating stunt that nobody else is aware of (until later).Hey, it worked for Jim Carey! And it does get smiles, and what would the world be like without smiles? Trust me, I've been close, I lived and worked across from Ground Zero for a few months in NY.You know what, after proofing this entry, I realized that my writing style almost mirrors some of the dumb faces I make...I'll not read too much into that though ;)Apparently this isn't something new in my life...30 years ago...Tell ya what, if you actually read this far, answer me this...Would you rather sit across from someone like this on a half-full subway car, or have your eyes gouged out with a Charleston Chew? Simple question...ANSWER IT!!
