There is this photo back from when I was a little kid, in which most of my face is covered in chocolate. I seem to have a wide grin, so I must have been enjoying it at that time.
But now, I think: “What a waste!” So much chocolate did not make it down my throat to my belly. What a shame.
Good old times. When we were young and ignorant.
Today, however, I do not cry over the spilled milk, but I do wonder about the reasoning behind picture taking. I remember my parents laughing when viewing that photo and describing me as “cute”. How could they think so? You do not look at a grown man, whose face is covered in BBQ sauce and think he is cute. You think he is a slob. Or you look for a napkin for him to use.
Not my parents. Not when it comes to me. At least not when I was a kid.
I have seen other baby pictures throughout the years in which the kids’ have all sorts of food smeared all over their faces, which means that apparently, there is something picture worthy in such situations. Something appealing to the photographer.
I ask you: “Why are people so impressed with messy babies?”
Do you have a “slob” picture of your own, back from when you were a kid?
Do you find it adorable?
