Flashback Friday ~ Everyone Has Their Signature Pose

1984 Church of God Childcare class picture day.  Church of God, my ass.  Those people were nasty.  The nap mats sucked, and the snacks blew.  The staff inspired me to give them the first ever, and shortly there after patented "I'm going to poop on your head" look. 
I'm going to be honest here, The Church of God Childcare people were probably not the monsters that I remember when I flashback to my four year old self, but I still maintain that they more then kind of sucked. 
1984 was a tough year, there were tons of changes of going on in our family life.  The Church of God people just represented time away from my mom.  My mom was my peace and constant and these damn people with their stupid nap time and snacks just didn't come close to that peace. So, on picture day when they said, "smile" I gave them scowl. 
While I don't have any of them scanned right now, I assure you there is a whole album full of me smiling or trying to smile without showing my teeth for subsequent class pictures.  The signature didn't make an appearance in a formal picture again until my senior year of high school. That time I was just trying to be cool.

Check out more Flashback Friday fun over at Christopher and Tia's !
