Foto Friday – Episode 15
Every week I think I’ve run out of Foto Friday material, and then I realize I’m very wrong. There’s always more!
Today’s Foto comes from our 3rd summer in college, when we were single ladies sharing an apartment for the summer. You know, the apartment with 6 cheap futons and a sketchy pool scene. I know you’ve been there too.
It was a very memorable summer, one of those where time seemed a bit slower. We did lots of stuff. And apparently, we went out for a lovely night of mini-golf!
Naturally I was the score keeper.
Requisite comment on the status of my hair: I’m recovering from a $6 haircut I got from a no-English Chinese barber who had clearly never cut non-Chinese hair. I think he was trying to cut the wavy part off… So he just kept chopping. My eyes kept getting wider and wider, all along hoping he somehow had a great plan. He didn’t.
I should point out that even with the terrible haircut, a little extra fluff in the face from eating all that Chinese food, and a rather questionable fashion sense (i.e. My Eclectic-Traveling-Backpacker Phase), I still met my husband that summer. Which brings us to our next artifact, which only Bethany and possibly our other roommate Jessica will appreciate:
This sign hung in our apartment and served to remind us all against the constant pressure to “settle”. The “Tre” thing is a reference to the Three Qualities which are possessed by the Perfect Boyfriend. I believe one of them was “Does not smoke pot”. #2 was something like “Is SURE he likes me”. Bethany will have to remind me about the other one. And in the end, we all succeeded because we’re all three married and I don’t believe any of the husbands smoke pot.
OMG the timing. Its 4/20. Happy 4/20 folks. Remind me to leave work early tomorrow to avoid the enormous traffic jam this event will cause around 5pm in Boulder.
