|1989 Mr. LC Contest|
My kids are curious as to what forces shaped me and my thinking. I guess the best way to describe my evolution is to say I've always enjoyed messing with the traditional -- I was the kid who liked drawing mustaches and other embellishments on the newspaper pictures of famous people.
The above picture is from a satirical college event where guys parodied a beauty contest will all kinds of buffoonery.
I had the crowd's energy with my swimwear, but lost the talent portion to a guy who wrapped holiday lights around his Bermuda shorts and did a silly dance. Oh well.
I realize the best answer to the kids' curiosity is that I was born this way, which is really no answer at all.
