[Editor's Note: This is a very self-indulgent post. Moreso than usual even.]
My aunt just mailed me a bunch of photos that she found while going through some things. Meli and I are currently in disagreement about which of the following two photos of me is the more entertaining photo. What do you think?
Candidate #1: "Heed"
This photo has several things going for it. Aside from the obvious follicular advantages, this image clearly shows a level of discomfort and lack of self-confidence that very few three-year-olds possess, but that would haunt me for the rest of my days. At least until now.
Candidate #2: "Young Matt on a Horse with Fake Legs"
Again, there are plenty of obvious advantages to this photo as well. It also illustrates the inescapable truth that redheads should never wear red, regardless of how young and otherwise adorable. The absurd red cowboy outfit teamed up with my ruddy toddler complexion to make me look like a zombie.
And as an added bonus, here's a photo of my parents in Bermuda in 1975. I really wish my dad still had that suit.
