Mixed Emotions

I got a new yearbook today, y’all. It’s a 1955 University of Miami. This shot was taken from UM’s 124 piece member band trip to El Salvador. It captures the response of El Salvadorans as the UM band helped celebrate the nation’s independence as “ambassadors of goodwill.”

This yearbook is RIPE, though, y’all. Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if you can smell the stale cigarette smoke wafting off the pages of this thing. It made my pants reak, just touching my lap. I think she can smell it.

  1. Your dose of trivia for today: In 1955, Miss El Slavador was 1st runner up in the Miss Universe contest. (Miss Sweden won.) Maribel Arrieta was a dead ringer for Marilyn Monroe. So there’s that, Miss Smelly Pants.
