Caption This


Such a sad, sad day. Look at that frown.
`
This was me, nearly 30 years ago. Look at that hair.
`
There's a simple story, but I want to know what your first thoughts are. How would you caption this photo?
`
Let's make it a contest!
`
Leave your caption (one per person) as a comment. Entries will be taken until 8pm CST on Sunday, February 21. Best caption will be announced Monday, February 22. Winner will receive their choice of one of the following from me, all of which are new and in hard cover:
`
Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark
Hey, Good Looking by Fern Michaels
The Hunt Club by John Lescroart
Magic Hour by Kristin Hannah
`
All I ask is that we keep it clean, this is Little Me we're talking about. Okay, Big Me likes to keep it clean, too.
`
Now get creative and caption this!

Hmf...I don't care if the poochy lip does get me.

Ok, I'm bad at these, but you were adorable!

I can't believe Mom made me wear this dress! (My caption stems from the fact that I have an almost identical picture of ME at that age, and I was very put out with the dress mom made me wear.)

The Hat Chick said...

...but you said I could wear the sparkly crown.

ChristaCarol said...

OK, I'm not very good at these either, but the first thought that came to me was: "I want my MOMMY!"

Slamdunk said...

"But mom, you said the cable would be installed today and there would be no more educational television!"

Melanie Avila said...

Janna was all smiles until the photographer told her to "look at the birdie" not knowing that she was in the middle of a long, drawn-out argument with her mother because she WANTED a bird, HAD to have a bird, but her mother refused to give in.

Analisa said...

What do you mean there is no hair and make-up for this shoot! I am so gonna fire my agent!

Adam said...

She ain't sad, she's sniffing! Hence:

"I smell fear."

Cameraman's about to regret mocking the dress...

Diane said...

I just dropped my ice cream.... seems fitting. So adorable. My hair is similar to yours in my old photos. Didn't anybody have a comb and spray bottle back then???

My feet hurt! Why do I have to wear these tight shoes when nobody can even see them?

Kathy said...

"That oatmeal is still sticking to my stomach! I HATE OATMEAL!"

Stina Rose said...

Sharla said...

Give me back my pen!

JLC said...

Little Janna was very excited to have her school picture taken. That is, until she saw the creepy Martian eating the camera.

thedomesticfringe said...

People are SO creative!

That wasn't another caption. I'm just sayin. I had to come back to read responses.

Cut contest. And cute Little You. I'll see if I can think of something. If not, I'll still be back to read everyone elses.

"I can frown if I want to, it's my photo and get that cute puppet away from me!"

--possibly, what I was feeling when I had my class pic taken

Kara said...

"I wanted the pretty red background to match my dress bring out my hair color, not the ugly boy blue background!"

Travis Erwin said...

What do you mean publishing a novel is hard?

dirtywhitecandy said...

Smiling is SO over.

JLC said...

LOL! Love the caption from Travis!! Everyone has such cute ideas!

Jessica said...

Oh Janna, that is SO adorable. Wow, look at that lower lip. :-)

Hmm, I have no clue about a caption. Maybe:

"I want my treat?"

LOL I don't know...but I sure love everyone else's captions. Too funny!

Angie Muresan said...

I'll cry if I want to!

(this is the hardest thing I had to think of all day)

Terri Tiffany said...

What a picture!!LOL

But I thought you'd like the way I cut baby sister's hair!

holydragon7 said...

"Sure, when Britney does it, they call it a pretty pout and the picture makes the cover of People Magazine. When I do it, I go to bed without supper!"

Amy Mullis said...

ACK! I just realized I'm leaving comments all around the Interwebz signed in as the 19 year old. Gotta love children--while administering corporal punishment.
Holydragon7 is me Janna!

"Emily," said Mama, "if a bee came along right now it would sting your lip."

"I don't want to say "cheese!" Can I say Pulitzer instead?"

patti said...

I Can't Believe I Ate the Whole Thing!

Janna, you wear the same face my daughter wore after she went to a birthday party and ate an entire tube of cake frosting. Pink.
Yep. Gross.
