i was once the virgin

You’d better turn the lights on before walking into my parents’ basement or you’ll be spooked by this giant laminated board of me!

In the mid-1990’s I was asked to pose as the Virgin Mary for the company’s* giant nativity scene that was lit for every one travelling down the highway to see. After several years of use, the nativity was being trashed.That’s when my mother rescued my laminated replica. (Notice how they PhotoShopped my face white to blend with a white Joseph and wisemen, but forgot about my arms!)
