Worth a Thousand Words

Yes, I was a Cheerleader in High School, no not the cute little thing on the top of the pyramid, no that's not me. I am all the way at the bottom, yea, the one with her head turned the other way....I swear it's me!

The school used to let us wear our Cheer leading Uniforms to school on Game Days, which I loved! The minute I stepped on a the school bus there was a 5th grader (I was a Freshman) that would break into song-

She kept her motor clean
She was the best damn woman I had ever seen
She had the sightless eyes
Telling me no lies
Knockin' me out with those American thighs

I didn't know this kid, and always ignored him (I never told him to stop it either!), but let me tell you, 'till this day, I think of those days and it is an INSTANT self esteem boost! I was rockin that mini-skirt with my Thunder thighs!

As always, we have Jen over at Cheaper Than Therapy to thank for Thousand Words Thursdays.


  1. The bottom of the pyramid is the more important spot, right? Happy ATWT

  2. I agree with Catherine - the bottom is where it's at - where all of the foundation is. Stable, strong. It's all good. And you certainly do NOT look fat in that picture - are you kidding??


  3. I love your memory....wish someone would sing that to me....every day! Happy ATWT!

  4. I have that song in my head know, I love it! What a great pic, isn't it fun to reminisce!

  5. What a great picture! That song is stuck in my head now!

  6. That picture is great. I was a cheerleader in HS too, and always loved walking the halls in a sassy skirt-- head held high. Maybe I should try busting out the old uniform at work... HA!

  7. OH MAN, that's my favorite AC/DC song!! You did have an impact on that guy, a fifth grader no less! LOL Great pic and story today!!

  8. Okay, you do not look fat in that picture at all! But I agree with the other posters, the bottom is the foundation. That's an important job!


I love you Darling, really! Thank you!
