Strange, yet true

On this day in history, Dec. 13, 1928, the clip on tie was created. Thirty years and nine months later, I was created. Five years after that, in 1963, I was wearing a a clip on bow tie.

STRANGE, YET TRUE!

And this gets even more bizarre. Three years later, when I was in Third Grade, I was photographed wearing a skinny, black clip on tie.


STRANGE, YET TRUE!


Okay, now this really gets weird. Three years later, when I was in Sixth Grade, I was photographed wearing a skinny, PAISLEY clip on tie.


STRANGE, YET TRUE!!?

And finally, six years later, when I was graduating from high school, I was photographed wearing my the last clip on tie I'd ever wear. And get this, it was a bow tie. Thirteen years after I'd worn my first clip on bow tie, I was wearing one again. Each clip on tie incident occurred at three or six year intervals over a 13 year period. And what is the real significance of this? The clip on tie was created on December THIRTEENTH, 1928. I was born in 1958! Coincidence? I think not. Even more disturbing about all of this is how big my ears look in all of these photos until I grew my hair out.


Truly, STRANGE, YET TRUE!!!
