Vox Hunt: Back In The Day

Show us a photo of you from when you were in grade school.

I’m pretty sure this that this is me on my first day of kindergarten. That puts the date at September, 1983. I had just turned five a few days before.

I’m glad to see that eyeglasses have become a little more stylish for kids. Those glasses don’t scream “I’m a five year old who is looking for adventures” – they whisper that I was breaking into Grandma’s purse to play dress-up. They’re sized down to a kid’s face, but they are still ginormous. Despite their ginormosity, I still managed to lose my glasses regularly as a kid. It used to drive my mother crazy.

I still have that big toothy smile though. Between that and the glasses, I’m pretty recognizable in this picture.
