Dear Young People That Are College Kids Right Now,
One day you - yes you - will come across a photo like this from your 'youth', your 'wild past' that will make you want to curl up and die. Perhaps not a photo of you in your 'hippie' days playing in a 'drum circle' at your southern women's college per se but something as equally as frightening.
You can do two things when you find this photo: hide it or share it. Technically, in my book if you make fun of yourself first - you win.
God I was so skinny and my arms looked great. Perhaps it's time to go back to drumming.
I post this now because E and I are four weeks away from our wedding. I think it's only fair that he finally knows about my 'wild' past. My past hanging out with fellow drum circle friends 'Rush' and 'Sandstone' (no...seriously) coming up with some 'new beats'. Yeah man.
But seriously, what is going on here? It looks like a bunch of homeless kids giving a congo drum presentation at a senior citizen home.
Who's condo is this? I half expect Morty Seinfeld to peek out from behind the curtains.
Possible flyer for this photo:
WANTED. FUTURE BANKERS AND LAWYERS AND TV WRITERS PRETENDING TO BE LAID BACK HIPPIES TO JOIN FUN LOVIN' SOUTHERN DRUM CIRCLE. MUST BRING OWN DRUM. MUST NOT HAVE SHAVED NOR GOTTEN A HAIRCUT IN PAST TEN MONTHS. DRESS-JEANS AND 'WACKY TOP' OPTIONAL - ALTHOUGH ENCOURAGED
It's funny how these things come back around to haunt us again.
It's because life man...is like just one big drum circle.
