Nothing’s Permanent

Nothing’s Permanent - Behind The Awkwardness

“I was pushing my brother’s GI Joe jeep up the hill.  I was bent over, face down & pushing.  The jeep came out from under me & I smashed my face on the pavement.  To remedy the situation, my mom decided to give me a home perm.  Gotta’ love the busted up face with the 70′s wallpaper & home perm curlers.”

Giggle Belly

Giggle Belly - Behind The Awkwardness

“My family used to play Giggle Belly.  You start by laying with your head on someones stomach.  When everyone is in place the first person says ‘ha’, the person on their stomach says ‘ha, ha’ and so on.  I am in the teal sweater with the acid washed jeans and 1990′s glasses.”

Mask

Mask - Behind The Awkwardness

“This was taken back in 1971 when I was about 18 months old. My grandmother had one of our cousins dress up as Santa to surprise me and my aunt (who is holding me). I’m not sure what happened to Santa on the way over…..looks like he was run over by one of his reindeer.”

Red Alert

Red Alert - Behind The Awkwardness

“My mother always dressed my brothers and I alike, but one Christmas, she made everyone do it.  This is the result.  I’m the one who is not smiling because I’m pretty sure I just received a “talking to” for my objection to the madness.”

Chocolate Baby

Chocolate Baby - Babies

“Discovered that one digitizing my grandparents slides. Must have been around the late 1960s. We are not certain about what happend prior to this photo been taken. Our hypothesis: The girl stole and eat the boys chocolate and got into trouble for doing so. Result: Girl sad, boy sad. We’ll never truly know, but this is just epic. It makes me laugh every time I look at it.”

Glamour Boy - Behind The Awkwardness

“We have so many photos and Christmas cards in our family that would earn an Awkward Family Photo award. This is another one of my crazy dad’s funny Christmas cards back when Glamour shots were popular (if they ever really were).”
