Don't Drink While Reading this Post Please

I have remembered another story about my first BYU roommates. I only lived with them during Winter and Summer terms, but many funny/tramatic things happened during that time.

I don't remember the details about how and why we decided to have a roommate portrait taken, but we did and one day we were discussing what we should wear. It was decided that we would all wear different colored sweatshirts.

My roommate Sarah for some inexplicable reason, like to wear twisted bandanas sometimes that matched her outfits on her head like she was working out or something. It was the early 90's and everything, but that look had been out since the 80's. I hated her forehead bandanas.

During the discussion of our portrait wardrobes I joked, "We should all wear matching bandanas!"

I didn't know Sarah would take me seriously.

The next day I came home from school and my outfit had been picked out for me. I was to wear a royal blue sweatshirt turned inside-out so the words wouldn't show and a matching bandana.

"I am not wearing it! I was joking!" I yelled. I put up quite a fuss I remember. I may have even stomped my feet.

I always get my way.

Here is the photo.




I'm the "cute" one in the inside-out-royal-blue-sweatshirt-NOT-wearing-a-bandana-on-her-kind-of-a-mullet-hairdo. All I can say is "That's HOT!"

That is beautiful. And unlike me who is hiding pictures of myself right now, you must be very comfortable with yourself to post such a nostalgic photo.
