Behind The Awkwardness: The Grind - Behind The Awkwardness

“My mother was usually creative decided to make us an “organ grinder and his monkey”. Inside the organ grinder was a tape recorder with a tape of marching band music. As you can see my jerk brother was reminding me to stay close to him at all times….blah blah blah. I HATED that costume and did not want to wear it…….in the end at least we got a ton of full size candy bars than the kids with the garbage bag costumes and masks.”

    That is the Brady Bunch’s family room!! To the right is the kitchen, directly ahead of the monkey is a table, to the right of that is where the cutout to the kitchen is (and where a payphone was for a short time :), if the organ grinder walks straight ahead, he can go out the sliding doors to the back yard. Watch out for footballs! Mow the astroturf! Look in Tiger’s doghouse for Kitty Carryall!
