My good friend Dave sent me an email:


I noticed you hadn’t logged into your MySpace since 3/6 so I’ve attached and am emailing the photo of my Grandma. I think it looks like you.


At first I thought maybe I should take offense. I look like his grandma? I’m 35 for chrissakes. But then I opened the attachment and was pleasantly surprised to see Verna, Dave’s grandma, circa 1926:

Nice, huh?
I forgave him for comparing me to his grandma. But in a phone conversation later in the week he did say, “When I was at your Mom’s house I saw a picture of you when you were younger and it reminded me of my Grandma. ”
And later….”I have a picture of her right before she passed away and she looks like the crazy professor from Back to the Future.”
So basically, I looked like the circa 1926 Verna sometime ago, but I am rapidly approaching the point where my white hair will sticking out in all directions from my head and I will be running down Main Street yelling, “Marty! The Flux Capacitor!”
Just in case you wouldn’t recognize me otherwise.

He’s right, it does kinda look like you – something about those pretty eyes… :o)

I’m having trouble reconciling it with the image of Christopher Lloyd though…

“Great Scott!”

From the little bit I’ve seen of you I would have to agree that there’s a similarity. Although, dude, if you start running down the street all Christopher Lloyd-esque in you latter years I will join you, becuase it sounds like a lot of fun.

She looks beautiful and composed — but mischevious, just like you Shari.

And crazy is better than boring anyways. Right?! RIGHT GUYS?!
