Some lessons are taught the hard way.
(submitted by Lindsey)
I think the only thing awkward here is that no one knows what the heck is going on in the picture.
I am SO glad it’s not just me that doesn’t have a clue as to what is going on here
Origional thought when I saw this…”What’s awkward about this? Is the girl peeing on them or something?”
Checked the comments to see if i missed anything (which I did…originally thought that was a kite in the kids hand too…and learned a sprinkler was involved)
This is my friend! There’s a sprinkler hidden by her son in front. He’s definitely did not hit her with the shovel (at least on purpose, anyway), but she might be dodging it, I don’t remember what was happening here, which is what makes it so awkward. Lindsey is not the type of person to have qualms about getting her clothes wet in a sprinkler. The girl isn’t naked, she has some sort of bottoms on. I think this was a spur-of-the-moment sprinkler party. My favorite part is her son in the back hovering in glee over the whole scene.
I am still confused, if the boy int he front is hiding a sprinkler, why can I see both of his hands. Where is he hiding it?
Hmm, maybe I don’t want to know….
hiding as in standing between it and the camera
I don’t get it either. What lesson?
I’m not getting this one either. I came to the comments to see if someone was explaining it. Glad to see I’m not the only one!
I think the consensus is…..”What the heck is going on here?!”
Are they playing baseball with water balloons and Mom “caught” a pop fly? I hope so; I don’t find it humorous if the boy hit her with the shovel, which her doubled over posture, glasses up over the eyes and water spray off her head would indicate.
I’m pretty sure the mom is in the process of flinging her head back- thats where the water above her head is coming from and why her glasses are wonky. I dont understand the constipated face or why shes in the sprinklers with clothes on. Maybe she’s, uuummmm……uuuuuuuuhh….. nope, I got nothing.
What the heck am I looking at here?
Same here. I don’t get it.
I second that question.
Not exactly sure what is happening, but the “snickering” being done by the boy in the back (probably at poor Mom getting wet) is priceless!
I don’t understand what lesson is being taught either.
Not a clue what’s going on.
I think the adult is the one learning the lesson from looking at the askew glasses, the pained face, the hunched body. Not sure where the water is coming from and if that is the culprit…that and the shovel in the little boys hands…Maybe the kids kinked the hose and mom came to investigate and BAM! Gotcha!
She looks like she just got punched in the stomach: doubled-over, facial expression seems to say “oof!”, glasses flying up and hair flying up…The awkwardness is there, just now sure why…???
Here’s what I see:
1) The woman’s glasses were either knocked off by the kid with the shovel or she is whipping her head so hard they flew off.
2) I think the little girl is wearing underwear.
3) The little playhouse/tent has googly eyes.
While the glasses thing is a little strange, without some context the perplexity of this photo overshadows its potential awkwardness. So please, could we have some “Behind the Awkwardness” commentary?
I agree – some background to flesh out the awkward would be appreciated…
What shovel? The boy in the front appears to be holding a toy airplane. I don’t see a shovel.
If that’s a toy airplane, it’s the least fake-aerodynamic toy airplane ever, since it’s shaped like a shovel. :-}
(Note the handle, and the wooden dowel connecting it to the shovel blade.)
I see. Gotcha.
Quiet news day at AFP I reckon.
glad I’m not the only one a little confused….did the lady get hit by the shovel?
I think the mom is trying to get the sprinkler away from the kids. She is all wet.
The little girl is in panties. Idk what is awkward yet either though.
What is happening here? I don’t feel the awkward… yet.
Can’t quite figure this pic out. Why is the little girl naked? Awkward.
While this is definitely awkward looking, I can’t tell what’s going on here.
any what lesson is being taught here?
