“A photo of me with a bunch of speedo men (Australian swim team) at Sea World in Florida, circa 1987. My mother was like, “Go get your picture taken with Nigil!”

Portrait Of A Marriage

“Christmas Day 2005, around the time my sister and brother-in-law started to disagree about everything – including whether or not they wanted to be in the same photograph. Surprisingly, the marriage lasted for another 3 years.”

Mouth-To-Head

“My mom and the other lady in the picture have been best friends pretty much since birth, so when they had babies at the same time they thought it would be cool if we ended up together. The other guy is my age and even though we live 700 miles away from each other and have had no contact, we have mutual friends. Unfortunately, I already showed this picture to some of our mutual friends and I’m pretty sure he knows who I am now. At some point, we’re going to run into each other. I don’t even know if this will be an icebreaker, or just the elephant in the room.”

Slippery Slope

“Here I am 3 years old.  My parents thought it would be cute to take my picture.  Yes that is a fur coat, snow man with 2 pennies for eyes and Pee-Wee Herman waiting for me at the bottom of the slide.  I promise a  I’m half way normal woman now.”
