Behind The Awkwardness

Yeah Yeah Yeah

“This is a photo of me (front left), my little brother (front right), my older sister and her older boyfriend taken in her bedroom sometime in summer 1984. I know the era because of the Van Halen posters on the wall and the RUSH pins on my shirt. I don’t remember why we posed for this picture- and I REALLY don’t know why my little brother and I look like we’re modeling for young punk magazine! It’s a strange little scene there. The Van Halen posters really crack me up.”

Birthday On The Rocks

“This is my 6th birthday party and yes that’s a bottle of Vodka my mom had to put down in order to plop my birthday cake on the table (yes there is no plate under it). This is also the same day I learned to make my mom her screwdrivers. Ahhh, the 70’s in Brooklyn were great.”

All About The Pants

“In 1990, I was in the Marine Corps and our family only had a few days together. We wanted to “remember” this date. Mission accomplished! We should have been arrested for child abuse. As we walked across the parking lot towards the portrait studio, people laughed, right out loud! Now THERE was a clue!”

Knee High

“For the past 10 minutes, I’ve been trying to explain to my sister-in-law that it looks like her legs are over her husband’s shoulders. She doesn’t see it.”
