This was me. A clown. Not one of my favorite costumes as a child, but to tell the truth, I chose this photo since the quality was better than the other ones I browsed through this morning. My mom created a HUGE scrapbook for me when I turned 30 and then filled a large photo album with all the other photos that couldn't fit into the scrapbook. So as I was looking through the album, I debated between the photos of me as a punk rocker, a witch with a green face and a few others. I like the photo I chose because it brings back memories of my blue tennis shoes with velcro, the big orange rocking chair that sat atop our red carpeting and the brick fireplace that I ran into right before I started kindergarten (and ended up with a horribly bruised ear). At least the carpet brings out my face paint and the red polka dots on my costume.
