This photo made me do a spit take. Like, a real spit take. With hot coffee.
And I keep laughing every single time I think about it. So much so that if I’m out and about, people will look at me like I’m crazy cuz I’m just cackling away to myself, shaking my head and mumbling, “I drank your wine this morning.”
So yeah, they probably think I’m more drunk than crazy. It’s been said before.
I first stumbled across these ironic Olan Mills-style photos taken by Danny Clark Photography of Dallas, Texas because of my friend and fellow blogger — the funny, quirky Kelley of Kelley’s Breakroom. She posted the same photograph above (sans graphics) on her Facebook page, and she actually knows the woman in the photo, whom she reports is a lovely person. Making me wish I knew her because she also obviously a) likes wine and b) has a sense of humor so we’d get along just fine.
Then because I kept dissolving into fits of giggles over the photo and needed to see if there might be more, I clicked through to Danny Clark’s Facebook page and found the motherlode of these funny, throw-back photos, including this little gem.
The photographer does this Holiday Throwback Portrait thing to raise money for charity (the Sunshine Kids) so Mr. Danny Clark gets a big pat on the back and possibility a golden statuette for creativity in charity work.
Check out this year’s Holiday Throwback Portraits 2013 and give Mr. Clark a like while you’re on his page.
I have little to share with you about the past week because I didn’t even write. My brain has been marinating in a thick fog of sugar, fat and cortisol for weeks now. And yes of course…wine too, my silver-haired lady friend. Always the wine.
Do check this out because I’m gearing up to attend a major party school this June and I’d really like for you to join me. You’ll probably learn some things too, as will I — making it a little more educational for me than actual college. It’s Blog U and I’m on the faculty. Shhhh. I promise you an A in my class if you’ll just come drink with me after hours.
In the meantime, I leave you with this little bedtime story. Once upon a time, I drank your wine this morning. The end.
