Taking The Plunge

Taking The Plunge - Behind The Awkwardness

“My brother is wearing my headband and we’re both eating Ring Pops. It looks like we’re dressed up for the Christmas Eve service. And Dad….? Dad passed away last Christmas, but his plunger will live on forever.”

Sibling Bond

Sibling Bond - Behind The Awkwardness

“When my sister and I were younger, my parents couldn’t get us to stop fighting. Mom had the idea of duct taping our wrists together since handcuffs were to inhumane for children. We went to the mall and sister had to go to the bathroom. I had to go into the bathroom while with my hand sticking out of the stall while my sister did a number two. Since then, no fights!”

The Special Request

The Special Request - Behind The Awkwardness

“A few years ago me and my parents went to France. My parents asked me to find a nice hotel. When I found the hotel, under the section where it asks if we have any “special requests” I thought I would make it a bit more entertaining. I told them that we would like pictures of Ostriches framed all over the room us to find and for them to leave bird food to feed the pictures of the Ostriches in case they get hungry. When we walked into our room, I broke down laughing my ass off.”

Knifeshaming - Behind The Awkwardness

“This was back in the 80′s when child safety was of no concern to adults. We never figured out if my grandpa took this picture for posterity or to shame me for not being able to safely use a large knife at 6 years-old. (Knowing him, my money’s on the latter.)”

The Fall Guy

The Fall Guy - Behind The Awkwardness

“My son and I went on a white water rafting excursion this summer. Clearly I was a bit nervous about going over the 15 foot water fall. I didn’t realize how terrified I looked until this photo was posted by the rafting company back at the store.”

Body Rock

Body Rock - Behind The Awkwardness

“Back in the 80′s a body wave permanent hairstyle seemed to be the rage. In hindsight, I’m glad that era has passed on. I have a few more like this, but probably none that better captured the 80′s fashion like this one.”

That Guy

That Guy - Behind The Awkwardness

“During the summer of 1989, my BFF and I were staying on the beach with her parents. We were both 16. We spent the morning in the hotel’s pool, where this older man kept watching us and grinning. Later that afternoon, we were dressed and ready to go out, but first we stopped at the Tiki Bar near the pool to take some pics of each other in our totally 80s outfits (yes, I realize my outfit and hair here could absolutely stand alone in their awkwardness, but I digress). Wouldn’t you know, the same older man showed up and stood behind me, still grinning, while my BFF took my picture. I don’t know if he was being truly creepy, or if he was just an odd old guy who got a kick out of the two teenyboppers at the pool and all the giggling we no doubt did, but it sure made for an awkward photo!”
