Formal Photo

I was recently forced to get a formal military photo so of course I'm forcing everyone to look at it. I'm not sure when I started hating getting my picture taken, but I loved it as a kid. Even my wedding photos were torture. All of a sudden I forget what a smile feels like and which side I look better from. Out of the 4 photos taken, this was the best one. It's hard to tell in the picture but I was in an extremely uncomfortable position. My body was facing one way with my head forced to an almost unreachable angle, which is why my neck skin looks like Betty White's. I learned that I don't have the range of motion I thought I possessed in my neck and that is how the over-confident, slightly arrogant tilt of my head was produced. This photo will be shown around base and to hundreds of people and all I want the world to know is that I'm sorry! I promise I'm not stuck up and I apologize for the crazy eyes.
