Behind The Awkwardness: The Waiting Game

January 27th, 2013

“This is a photo of my wife in the late 80′s with her father waiting for her prom date to pick her up. As you can see by the photo, she wasn’t very happy posing for a pic with shirtless dad.”

    Omg I wore a prom dress just like hers in 1986! My Dad used to dress like that too, so I totally relate to this pic!

    She looks just like Linda Ronstadt.

    I could see my husband doing this to our daughter about ten years from now. Unless it is a studio portrait, every photo I have taken of him around the house is a shirtless one.

    Did dad wear a shirt to the wedding at least? @Sharon, I saw my neighbor getting his mail without his shirt on yesterday. I was very greatful for that because he has a nice body ;)

    Gorgeous Looking very Italian American…I would be peeved with my father also, but really he probably didn’t want to be in the photo either?

    Sooooo funny,
    and she’s pretty

    Is the shirtless Dad from a bygone era? It seems like it was common in the 70′s, when I was a youngster, but I can’t even fathom my husband or any of my kids’ friends’ Dads appearing outside the house shirtless. And we live in Arkansas, so don’t tell me it’s regional ;)

    Julie’s Sixteenth Birthday

    I bet you had her back on time! Dad doesn’t look like someone you’d want to be on the bad side of…..

    Joanie is waiting for Chachi

    Your wife looks just like Molly Ringwald in Sixteen Candles! Wow. Brings back lots of memories!

    Precious!!
    This is WALL HHANGING material!!!

  17. Murmur1 says:

    I want the date for my prom date!

  18. jaklumen says:

    At least shirtless Dad doesn’t have a ginormous gut (like… me!). I think that would make it more awkward.

  19. M says:

    Because the awkward part is the lack of shirt….–and totally not the cutoff jorts.

  20. Tim R says:

    In all fairness, Dad doesn’t look too happy either.

  21. Amanda says:

    I’m guessing shirtless dad wanted to make an impression on prom date boy.

  22. Scout C says:

    At least he’s not her date ready to go to prom. Now THAT would be awkward on so many levels!

  23. Brynn says:

    OMG. That is MY PROM DRESS! Thank goodness my shirtless dad didn’t pose next to me, though.
