How do you do?

My favorite picture of me is a B&W shot of me as a kid staring up in wide-eyed wonder at a Christmas tree. But this is my favorite picture of me as an adult.
Believe it or not, I had forgotten that this is a black and white Christmas-tree motif-y picture too, which is kinda odd cuz I'm not crazy about Christmas. I am, however, crazy about the woman in the picture with me, my beautiful bride Kimberly.
My favorite picture of me as an adolescent is in color and there are no Christmas trees in sight. I am in my grandmother's front yard wearing the denim jacket I thought was so cool, and I am making a threatening gesture at my brother John, who was trying to stick his face into my picture -- a bad habit of his, he used to do it to strangers at Disneyworld too.
(And yes, I do have a tendency to put things in the order of how much I like them, kinda like that guy in Nick Hornby's brilliant "High Fidelity")

This picture seems like it came from another lifetime! I am honored to be in your favorite picture (of you) as an adult.

In it? You're the reason it's my favorite.
