Something not wedding photography related . . . Tiffany Warmowski was, I guess you can say honored, to be included in the latest episode of the Mortifed podcast. Tiffany explains . . .
There’s a podcast and stage show called Mortified, where adults read the diaries they wrote as teenagers. I was listening to this podcast when they had a call for horrible teen poetry. This is a tongue-in-cheek contest sponsored with the Poetry Foundation. Well, in addition to books and books of diary pages, I also have quite the collection of really, really bad poetry I wrote as a teenager. I chose two poems and called the phone number where I read each poem and gave a little background on why I wrote each one. Well, apparently my horrible poem, titled, “Yesterday” stuck out to them. You can hear me on the podcast reading part of the poem I wrote as a freshman in high school. Let’s just say that “Mortified” is a very accurate description of how I’m feeling!
