Behind The Awkwardness

Christmas Jazz Hand

“The infamous Christmas photo shoot of 1984.  Dad’s short-shorts and high socks highlighted his fashion-forward attitude and athleticism; my sister’s cheerleading perfection revealed her vow to never look bad in any photo- ever, and my single jazz hand stance complete this Awkward Family Christmas Card from nearly 30 years ago.”

Where Sleeping Dogs Lie

“While my hubby, son, and I were playing Minecraft, my 2.5 year old daughter was playing in the playroom behind me.  After a while I noticed the absence of noise, turned around, and found this sight.  She had fallen asleep in the last position she had been playing in which happened to be laid out on top of my Corgi.  The dog is not very intelligent and just laid there with a 35 lb toddler on top of her for what must have been 20 minutes or more.  After snapping the pic I took the baby to her own bed and the dog acted like nothing happened.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Amaizing

“This is a photo of me, six years old, I’m guessing around Thanksgiving. I have no idea what my freakin’ parents were thinking, or why it took me so damned long to realize how awesome/horrifying this prop was.”

No Thanks

“This photo was taken at yet another un-thankful thanksgiving dinner. Or some other dinner where all four siblings were forced to squish on one side of the table to make room for their elders.  You can tell our joy by the looks on our faces and the empty wine bottles behind us.”

Pit Stop

“Family vacation around 1974.  We drove all the way to California with my father taking dozens of rolls of film.  By the time we did a swing by the Grand Canyon, we were all tired.  We got out of the car and this is the sole photo my father snapped of us.  We spent about 3 minutes there.  Long enough for my mom to finish that banana.”
