Self-Portrait Truthiness – Alternate Title: At Least You Can’t Smell My Breath
Is this Wednesday Wordless? Well. Not really. But at least it will have photos in it…
That’s right. Just after waking, no make-up, no hair primpin’ - no nothin’ extra.
Can I just say I LOVE a woman who’s not afraid to be Real?
I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve Photoshopped zits out of pictures I posted online. I mean, did you really want to see my whitehead? I doubt it.
But I’m also all about The Real.
If you’ve seen my “Everyday Me” collection (inspired by Madame Meow and clickflashwhirr), then you know I’m all about showing The Real. Cause, yeah. All my original zits are on those photos. I didn’t take any out (or add any, for the record).
And, I’m sure some of you recall when I shared Kevin & Leroy with you:
And then I introduced you to Pattie:
So, really. Not afraid of sharing The Real with any of you, because we can only benefit from accepting one another as who we really are. And if flashing my muffin-top at you will help facilitate that, then so be it.
Now, after Sweetney shared with us, she DOUBLE DOG DARED the rest of us to do the same. And then so did Her Bad Mother, Oh The Joys, IzzyMom, Mrs. Flinger, Motherbumper, Mamalogues, Breed ‘Em And Weep and the lovely Canadian 2008 Bloggies Winner (you go, girl!) who I have a huge hard-on for (yes, I can have those. and my penis is bigger than yours): Redneck Mommy.
And when THOSE women dare you to do something – you don’t F-Around. And when they DoubleDogDare you… you run like a mofo and complete the task ASAP.
So, I present to you the Ugly Truth that is Me Upon Waking:
Now YOU should do it. Really. GO.
