WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO ME? I LOOK LIKE HELL
For the record I’m still in my non depressed state, however, sometimes you have to call a spade a spade. I was very breifly checking, my rarely looked at facebook page and noticed that my buddy Terry had a couple of shots from our old, old, OLD band Restless spirits up for old times sake. Let me put this up since this is key to my argument and I apologize for the fashion sense and for I’m second from the left.
Yeah, I know I look a bit like a Picadilly rent boy, but Christ I was hot. To give you an idea how clueless I was at the time (I won’t mention how many decades ago this picture was taken) I had a hard time picking up women. In this picture I was probably around 185 pounds. Jesus, if I looked like that now and was single I’d probably have at least 5 STD’s named after me by now. Now for contrast here is a picture taken about 5 minutes ago, also wearing black which is of course “slimming”.
I mean in all actuality I know what happened to me. Put quite simply loads of food, liquor, beer, sloth, fistfights (which did wonders for my craniofacial structure) and time. I weigh a deplorable 313 pounds right now, made especially sad because I’m DOWN to 313 right now.
I actually pay a closer resemblance to Shreck than to my old photos at this stage in my life. What is, is what is and I’m trying to get a bit closer to the shape of the guy in the top photo; mostly by crying and lighting St. Jude candles. In any case it’s rather good fodder for a self deprecatory bit of bloggery.
