My mother gave me tons of good advice growing up.
At least, that is what I remember. Much of her wisdom must have have sunk in because overall I think I turned out pretty well. Meaning: I’ve never been to jail. Technically, I have been read my rights and handcuffed but I NEVER WENT TO JAIL.
Oh dear, did I just say that out loud?
Okay, so maybe her words of wisdom weren’t all THAT GOOD. Or maybe I was just a crazy teenager? Anyway…
For whatever reason, there is one piece of advice that my mom delivered to me that stands out in my mind to this very day. I will never EVER forget it. Probably because it stunned me into silence.
Her advice? “Jenny, don’t ever let a guy take a picture of you naked. You’ll always regret it.”
Oh yes, she actually imparted that wisdom on me. And I remember that moment as clear as day. Wouldn’t you? I have never figured out what prompted it. Was my little warped 15 year old mind considering posing for Playboy or something? (Not!) Just for the record – My mom actually denies that little morsel of intelligence. She says she has no idea what I am talking about and that she never said that.
Sure you didn’t mom. (I so totally know that I am right.)
So there you have it folks. Words of wisdom for the day: Don’t pose naked for anyone. You can thank my mom for it later.
