I was a cute kid. What the fuck happened?

This Thanksgiving, my grandfather gave me some pages from a photo album that I’m assuming my grandmother had put together.  I can’t pinpoint what went wrong, but at some point I went from cute kid to douchey, awkward teen to confident, douchey adult.

  1. How come when I tell you how douchey your hat or sunglasses make you look you try to argue with me and say they are stylish and cool. You realize that after this post you don’t ever get to argue with me on that again, because if you do you’ll have to admit to fishing for compliments… And that, my friend, would take us full circle, back to douchey.

    Also, I’m surprised you didn’t include the homeless/angry grizzly bear photo that’s in your sidebar. Nobody would try to say you look douchey there, although they may ask if you could show them where all of your victims bodies were buried.

    I’m a good friend!

      1. @Avitable, I commented on Monday, today is Thursday. That’s a hundred years in blog-time. Why not just go comment on a few posts from 5 years ago. In fact, I think I will, and I know which ones!

        I really don’t think your kid photos look douchey. Kids are kids.

        Now, the current photo… The one that YOU labeled “Super douchetastic!”, yup. I agree with that!

  2. You either grew into your eyebrows or discovered tweezers by high school. I think you were always adorable and continue to be to this day. Personal opinions of ourselves aren’t valid, so don’t bother telling me you aren’t. I think you’ve actually gotten better looking with age. You look a little wasted during those younger years…whiskey in the baby bottle? Why start covering the goodies when you are 63? Do you become modest in your elder years? Nice socks gaylord.
