24, In the Flesh (Kind Of)

Most of you know, I'm not really 24 years old.  I mean, of course I'm 24 in all things that matter, but my body has betrayed me and I've had more than 24 birthdays.  Once in awhile I'll get an email from an advertiser or a new reader thinking I'm really only 24.  I wish that were the case.  Sadly, it's not.  (Don't tell anyone, but I've got wrinkles!)

Summer 036

Yep, that's me.  Sorry I've got sunglasses on in the photo, but I always have sunglasses on if I'm outside. My eyes are very sun sensitive.

I know I'm just about the only blogger in the entire universe who chooses not to post many personal or family pictures.  My kids are teens and their privacy is sacred to them. I try to respect that.  Sometimes I ask if they'd mind me sharing a photo of them, but most of the time I find it best to leave personal photos out of my posts.

I got an email recently from one of my Internet pals stating she won't even know who I am at the convention this summer because I'm so "reclusive." So there you go, now I've come out of my self-imposed hermit-hood and shared a photo.  

Hermit-hood.  Yes, it is too a word.  Or, at least, it should be a word.

When I began Twenty Four At Heart, I only told a few people in my "real life" about it.  I wanted my writing to be anonymous.  My anonymity went right out the window awhile back (at least locally).  If everyone around here knows who Twenty Four is, I figure you might as well too.

If you're a freak, a stalker, mentally unbalanced or just a creep … remember, I could be lying.  Maybe that photo isn't really me at all.  Maybe I'm really a 6'5", 250 lb. man with anger management issues.  

And a big dick.  

If I'm a man, I want to be well hung.

    Helll…you’re so damn attractive you could probably carry off a big dick as a woman!
    Um wait, that didn’t come out like I planned. That was SUPPOSED to be a compliment!!
    I’ll stop now. 🙂

    You’re brave – it will be a cold day in Hell (or minus 50 pounds later) before I post a picture of myself on my blog.
    My family, though? They’re fair game. Bwaaaaahahahahaaaaaa!

    Yay! Now I know who to look for at BlogHer. 😉
    And while I share pictures of myself on my blog fairly frequently (my anonymity also went out the window when I let a whole slew of the Church Ladies have my blog URL), I’m very picky about *which* pictures I share. 😉
    J is usually the one who has bigger issues with his face being on the internet. (and he has started vlogging.. how ironic) My kids? Whenever I do a video or take pictures of them they say ‘Will you put this on your blog??’ Cracks me up.

    Nice reveal shot! Revealing, but not too much so.
    And it’s tricky posting pics of the family isn’t it? Had to put Tinkerbelle’s WW ‘Awww’ pic on password protect just to be careful…worrying about internet pervs and all.
    Have i mentioned how much i like password protect?

    I can’t believe I missed this post. Great photo 24. I have now been around long enough to rememeber the last time you posted photos of yourself. If I ever leave my teaching gig I’ll put my photo up, maybe. But my kids could care if I do, they are all over Facebook and Myspace anyways. Oh, and Youtube.
    Very jealous you get to go to blogher. If I travel this summer, it will only be to help move my mom into an assisted living facility.
