Josh over at Josh Is Trashy squirted his “Funtime Photo Explosion” all over me and I’m always up for a challenge. The rules are simple: 1. Go to your first photo file and pick the 10th photo in it, 2. Tell the story behind the photo, and 3. Tag 5 other people to do likewise.
Since I have no idea what a “photo file” is, I linked Mikey to my Flickr account, and just had him pick one. Sadly, he picked this one:
This is me in a gay S&M dungeon, right before a big burly leather daddy had his way with me. This is Adam, circa 2005 in a cheesy basement recreation of the Salem Witch Trials, in (go figure) Salem, Massachusetts. You see, in the summer of ’05, I took a trip to Mystic, CT and Salem, Mass with my two bestest friends in the whole wide world. We road tripped, drank a bit too much, shopped at the same stores we could have shopped at if we had never left NJ, and had the kind of blast that only a few 20-somethings could have while touring historic reenactment hot-spots.
On this particular day, we bought an overpriced ticket package that included a tour of Salem, and entry into a few mannequin reenactments of the Witch Trials. This tour in particular began with an over-rehearsed perky high school girl talking about murder and ended with a stockade photo opportunity that I could never turn down. Sadly I had awful hair, an ill-conceived goatee, and about 30 extra pounds … but hey, that’s life. Overall Salem, Massachusetts is pretty cheesy, especially since it’s a few miles away from the original scene of the Witch Trials … where none of the original buildings are still standing.
So that’s my story … now who can I pass the challenge along to? Do I even follow five bloggers that Josh didn’t already tag in his post? I’ll pick…
1. Enrico at Hotel Tuesday
2. Mushy at Goblinbox [oh wait, she already did it]
3. Ryan at Coalition of the Thrilling
4. Tam at Tam’s Reads
5. and Michelle M. who needs to start a blog, and then post often.
There ya go! The challenge is on! What photo will you post?
