21. A Favourite Photo of You

Usually, and I mean 99.9% of the time, I hate pictures of me.  Like most people, I suppose.  I really, really am not photogenic.  But this one I don’t mind.  I mean, I look a little drunk (JEN O., YOU ARE DRUNK), but I like my hair and I like my freckles and those are my favourite glasses ever.  This was taken in Florida last year at the manatee pavilion in Sea World.  I love manatees.  They’re the best thing ever.  Did I ever tell you about the time, a few Florida trips ago, when we were at this very pavilion, standing around, watching the sea cows, talking about their adorableness, when this stranger-lady walked up to us to correct our pronunciation?  “Excuse me, but it’s mantatee.”  Uh…thanks, lady.  ManTatee.  And so, this is how we pronounce manatee forevermore.

  1. Ha! Great pic, and I love your story. That’s my favorite, when a stranger’s stupidity becomes a beloved inside joke. For my best friend’s wedding shower we picked up the cake, which was reserved in the bride’s last name (Canada). As it was misspelled, to this day I still call her Cananda.
