Behind The Awkwardness

Molly

My cousin Molly’s grandma went into Spencers look for presents for her family. She thinks she found the best presents ever!

“So, I found this in our family bookcase, the spine facing down… I’m their only daughter.”

Left Out

“This is (obviously) the last day of pre-school for my oldest. We do a first day picture and a last day. Pictures are always torturous for my boys but for some reason my youngest was convinced he needed to be in the picture. I wouldn’t let him outside so that I could snap it quickly and take him to school. The outcome was EPIC!”

Last Friday Night

“Everything I had going on for me summed up in one picture: feathered bangs, orange and black rubber bands on my braces because it was around Halloween (I did that for every holiday), glasses (which my mom picked out in peach so they ‘blended with my face), a high pony tail because I was on the dance team, and turquoise earrings (duh, I live in New Mexico). Years later my friend would point out how similar I looked to Katy Perry in the “Last Friday Night” video.”

Nobody Will Nose

“My mom got her nose done 2 days before family pictures. Sears told my mom there would be a fee if we rescheduled are family photos, so we decided to go anyways.”

Three Kates

“This is my friend Kate. I recovered this picture from helping her move a few years ago and with her permission am sending to you. 80’s Kate is fond of books, sitting and perms.”

Pretty in Pink

“When I was 9, my teeth were so messed up that I had to wear “headgear” to create more space for my overcrowded mouth. The only say I had in the matter was choosing the color; either clear plastic or pink, which I hated. I asked them if there was any way possible that they could make it electric green, because apparently, that would make me look “cool.” The dental assistant shook her head and looked at the ground. I sighed and chose clear. Apparently, she checked the wrong box on the order form because when it was time to pick up the contraption, it came out of the box hot pink. Mortified, I begged my mom not to make me wear the pink thing to school. Fortunately for me, I had a very understanding mother. So, I only wore it at home and on car trips to see my grandparents.”
