Behind The Awkwardness: Goal

“At a family birthday party, I thought I would do the fatherly thing and play a little soccer with my daughter.  As I approached her to try to steal the ball, she sent a rocket in my direction. I was okay after writhing on the ground for a few minutes.  We switched to football for the rest of the afternoon.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Beltboy

“This is my pre-school picture.  I had a fit and would not get my picture taken unless I could put my belt on my head.  So my mom did what she had to do.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Goosebumps

“One year in elementary school, we were given the option of taking a hobby photo in addition to our regular picture.  My parents suggested I do a soccer photo or even one with my clarinet but I insisted on Goosebumps, explaining that the clarinet one would be too dorky.  I’ve never actually read the book I’m holding and out of the 50 or so titles I collected in the series, I only read about 5.  None of those 5 were the book I won a city-wide poster contest for in sixth grade; I just liked drawing wolves.  I guess the judges never read them either.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Shadows

“This was my first communion picture. First of all, the hair is epic!! Crop top WITH tight perm? Yes please!!! But the real gem of the picture is my little sister, who for some reason wasn’t allowed in the pic and is seen lurking in the shadows in the background! Lol! And we wonder why she had middle child syndrome!!!”

Behind The Awkwardness: Channel 9

“This is me at approximately 4 years old, in 1988. My brother came across this gem during a move. I sent this to my dad, asking if he remembered taking this picture, since he was the main picture-taker in our family. His response was, “Oh I did! You look so pretty and cute!” But Dad, what about what’s on the TV next to me? Obviously, this was taken before we had the ability to pause live TV- perfect timing. Lol.”
