Wordful Wednesday: Jealous Much?

Okay, all of you women out there... Don't think I haven't noticed you throwing yourselves at my good bud, Jay, Mr. Halftime Lessons, himself.  You should be ashamed. Very ashamed. HOWEVER, before you go looking for your dignity and self-respect, please, take this golden opportunity to fawn over the young hunk. Consider it a gift... No need to thank me. 

And by the way, today just happens to be his birthday! Happy Birthday to my favorite prom date of all! 

This post has been brought to you by the year 1985 and, of course, that Wordful Wonder herself, Angie!

Young Momma said...

Okay. Maybe I'm missing the point here. I'm like on my last leg of awareness before bed time. And it took me two freaking hours to post that tribute!!!!!!

Is that Jay?? I didn't think you really knew each other??

Love the dress though... and the do. ;)

Young Momma said...

OK... seriously... 1985?? I was BORN that year!

Just saying.....

Brenda said...

That is SO funny! I need to post one of mine!

angi_b72 said...

Hootin' Anni said...

Very attractive couple...and Happy birthday to your 'prom date'


Happy Wordful Wednesday. My entry today is one part cats, and other goodie tidbits from an alphabet challenge. Won't you stop by and say hi?

blueviolet said...

I did not know that your love affair with Jay went back that far. That's pretty cool and the picture...what a treasure! Happy Birthday to Jay, today!

Brenda Jean said...

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA wait there's more BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Okay, I'm done now. I was out of college and working by 1985.

I'm heading over to Jay's now.

I'll just throw it out there since we're all thinking it...

Were you the one to "deflower" him?

Ironically enough, I went with a "Jay" to my Prom as well. We do have great taste.

P.S. I'm rounding up a posse to take out Young Momma. Whipper snapper. Who's with me!?

angie said...

I had a feeling that for Jay's birthday you might pull out all the stops........and post this. I even posted a little early so that I could make you number one on Mr. Linky, but alas, you hadn't scheduled this to post so I had to wait until morning.........:)

Seriously.........classiest prom picture I've ever seen. And since it's from the 80's, that's saying a lot. :)

angie said...

Em,
I'm with you........Young Momma just made me feel really, really, old. he he. :)

Susie said...

I totally loved 1985! Whoohoo for the 80's!

Sparkette said...

How sweet is that! :) Nice WW! Have a great day!

Halftime Lessons said...

OH. MY. DEAR. BARBARA.

I am blushing from head to the nipples that my cardboard tuxedo shirt rubbed off because my father never thought to teach me about undershirts.

I will be back as soon as I regain my composure.



(PS - How HOT is my date??!!!! MEOW)

Deb said...

leave it to Em to drag a perfectly innocent surprise straight into the gutter!

for your information, there was no deflowering going on (i'm pretty sure he was still drooling over suzann)! i wanted to get that out of the way before jill showed up and things got even more out of hand.

and really? husband and wife? we can't be... we don't fight.

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

I love the photo and Happy Birthday Jay! The throwback - I am afraid of posting a photo liek that one.

Halftime Lessons said...

On the contrary.

Given that I was 17 years old with very little game, I am fairly sure I must have gone home after prom and made sweet sweet love to myself.

CaJoh said...

Never went to prom— though I was asked to go to one with a friend who was still in HS when I was in college. Unfortunately I had other things I was doing that weekend and couldn't attend.

Happy Birthday prom date!

Halftime Lessons said...

By the way, Young Momma, 1985 was back when we didnt treat each other's bodies like playgrounds in high school. Sex was a luxury.

Then, the 90s hit, and with it a flood of fornication.

Now, I'm married, 2 kids. Sex is a luxury again.

Welcome to the circle of life.

Kelly Deneen said...

hahah! That is adorable. :)

Elaine A. said...

That picture is totally awesome! I think my brother has one that looks very similar from the same year!

Happy B-day Jay!! (and yes, we are throwing ourselves at him. And after seeing that, who wouldn't?) ; )

Under the Influence said...

Too funny. I'm sure I could scrounge up a 1985 prom picture that would compliment this one very well!

Harlene said...

Priceless!

Straight to Your Hart said...

Yes...what I am jealous about is you are still freakin hot!!! K-Jay too. What a great picture.

Happy Birthday to him...I am impressed with a sweet friendship that has continued.

jill jill bo bill said...

You hopefully broke him in well. You did the big hair very well I might add.

Kristina P. said...

Happy birthday, Deb!!

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

awesome - I imagine you married him?? (smiles)

Tenakim said...

SHUT UP! I had no idea you knew him- that picture is PRICELESS!

Debbie said...

What a great photo! I wish I could see that hair better. Hair back then was something to see:)

namaste said...

Just great! Love the 80s!

Sheri and George said...

I am oh so jealous! What a cute couple. I will never allow my prom picture to see the light of day. Talk about hair!! Back then we still did the big updo's.OMG!
Happy Birthday Jay!!!

The Frugal Angel-Guided Psychic said...

Holy 80's Batman!

You two look like stand-ins for the "Pretty in Pink" prom scene, but, I'd be there right along side of you! Thanks for bringing back a bunch of sorted memories LOL!

Cute picture! :)

Jen said...

look at how awesome you look.

Michelle said...

How funny! I didn't realize you all were "real" friends. Great picture.

Lee the MWOB Queen said...

WOWZA!! Lovin it people and unlike Young Momma, yes Em, I'm with you on the take-out plan, I remember 1985 prom life quite clearly and you guys look HOT!

What a couple of cuties you guys were - and still are of course. :-)

Nice work Deb and now I gotta head over to the birthday boy!

Pamela said...

What an awesome pic! Very stylin'. Good to meet you. I just recently started posting Wordful Wednesdays.

Young Momma said...

Wow. I just got verbally (and no doubt mentally) attacked by three strangers!!!! lol! I didn't say anything about 1985 being bad... or that ya'll are old... just... that I was born that year. So... I'm... young...lol!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Look how CUTE you guys are! I didn't know you were real life friends!

Stacy's Random Thoughts said...

What a cool pic! I had no clue that you guys were 'real life' friends...and former prom dates at that! Learn something new every day... ;) Happy Birthday to Jay - guess I better visit his site today too! ;)
