...and all anyone can see is my completely clothed body and the back of my head. I didn't even see this edition the day it came out. It came out on Halloween, and I didn't hear about it until November 3. A customer that knew what I looked like and what my bicycle looked like figured that had to have been me, and kept her copy of it to give to me. The text under it said, "Framed by fall foliage, a cyclist takes advantage of Monday's warmer weather on the bike trail along Tucker Creek." "Takes advantage of." Yeah right, like I had a choice. Of course, whoever was in the park snapping pictures that day couldn't have even known my name (that's why I'm only identified as "a cyclist"), much less my circumstances. And thus goeth my one and only time on the front page of the local paper. I'll probably never make one again, unless I go on a shooting spree. I can just imagine THAT headline. "Wal-Mart associate goes postal."

AsianAmericanIdol, how about you contact that newspaper and tell them there is a BIG story behind that picture! They will believe anything lol Just kidding... but to make you feel better - my son and my ex-mother-in-law were caught on film playing in the park on Lake Ontario Beach and that photographer managed to screw up BOTH of their names - so much for fame on the front page of local newspaper!!! HAHA

Mariana, Sepelo, NNY, Pauline, etc. I was getting all excited when that customer told me she saw me on the front page. Then it turns out to be THAT. It kind of reminds me of the end of "Monsters Inc." when Sully and Mike make the cover of "Time" and there's a bar code completely covering Mike's face. The front page today actually showed some customers at the Wal-Mart I worked at, and unlike mine, actually had faces, names, and a bona fide interview. What did these people do to deserve this honor? They'd been camping out since Tuesday night hoping to get one the Playstation 3's that's coming out on Friday at midnight. At first they were loitering around layaway, but the assistant manager told them to take it outside, and so they did. Through wind, rain, and 30 degree temperatures. So I guess I don't have to kill anybody to make a front page of a paper. I just have to be a big enough dweeb to camp out half a week waiting for a gaming system. I might have been a big enough of a nerd in high school to actually meet half the cast of the original "Star Trek" series and hang out with people who were still having "Dungeons and Dragons" nights into their mid-20's, but even *I* have my limits!
