Storytelling in 30 Photos ~ Photo Five

5. An old picture of myself.

Anna, me, Patti and Jill

This pic was taken… gosh, maybe in 1999?  I want to say I was 16.  This was at the joint surprise party of two of my best friends.  My other friends and I planned the party for the weekend AFTER their birthday and our grand scheme was to not even wish them a happy birthday on their actual birthdays.

Oddly enough, one of them didn’t even realize that no one wished her a happy birthday.  However, the other one was beside herself upset.  I remember her mom even calling us to tell us that while she understood that we were planning the party that we should at least have said happy birthday.  Oops.  It seemed like a good idea at the time!

Needless to say that once they both realized we were throwing them a party they were both happy and all was forgiven!  This was back during my long, lighter hair years!

    I agree: you do look like a young Britney in this one!

    This is a beautiful picture (I didn't recognize you either!) I love the story…I did something similar to a friend and he was so upset but he enjoyed the surprise and all was forgiven :)

    You're such a cutie!!
    And…oh my gosh, you must have been mortified when your friend's mom called! And you were just trying to be sweet and give your friend a surprise. Yikes!! :)
