Sore Loser - Uncles, Aunts, & Cousins

“This is my cousin and I at the races. We are the same age and were in the same class at school, so I always felt a little bit of rivalry with her. My older brother, my older sister and my younger brother all won the “Best Dressed” in their age/gender categories, but my cousin won in ours. I was so dirty on her for winning because not only did I have to put up with (what I saw as) her smugness, I also had to put up with my siblings teasing.

We are now in our 30’s, great mates,  and think this photo is hilarious. Especially since my cousin admitted she was jealous of my hat and scrunchy socks (which were all the rage back then).”

    This is just such a funny photo! I am in sympathy with the younger you. I agree with the other commenter who said “We’ve all been there!” Maybe it’s just my interpretation but your cousin looks almost devious in her delight! Nice to hear you all get along in spite of the trauma of that day.

    The little girl with the hat looks like Idgie in the beginning of Fried Green Tomatoes.

    Should have been a lock for you with that hat!
