What really makes this sad is that if this picture is real (I assume it is, but could really care less) is that would mean that you are currently in your 40s. The fact that you, as a grown man, feel the need to write this out and justify something to some random idiot on the internet is pathetic. If I was the NPO guy I would love to contact your former boss or your best-man to confirm the picture. Because I would think once they hang up the phone or answer that email, their next call would be to you, with the question of what the hell is wrong with you, why did you give out my contact info, and grow up.
So I guess my point here is, you are embarrassing yourself, if you were some 15 year old kid whatever, but you are an adult, act like it.
