Behind The Awkwardness

Victoria’s Secret

“This is my Mom in Dec of 1959. My brother had been born in August and my Dad was overseas in the Army. She took this photo and sent it to him. When questioned, she insisted these bras were ‘in style.’ I’ve never seen another photo of anyone ever wearing one. We’ve enjoyed this photo for years, it’s time to let others enjoy it as well.”

It’s My Birthday

“We were celebrating my daughter’s first birthday and this picture was snapped of my daughter, her father and her nana. She did NOT want to take any pictures and did NOT want to be held.”

Sad Devil

“This is my best friend on Halloween when she was about ten. She was NOT happy with her mother’s choice of costume for her, and apparently, the make-up job was sub-par as well because it looked, as she wailed with indignance, “It looks like I’m crying blood!”

First Communion

“In 1987, I began the current trend of Duck Lips to my mother’s disgust and my grandmother’s sheer amazement.”

Me: “Honey, I don’t think she can hold herself up on that pumpkin.”

Husband: “You just take the picture. I promise I’ll make sure she doesn’t fall.”

Garbage Pail Kids

“My mom said she was dressing us up as “The California Raisins.” As I look back on this photo and share it with friends, I really think she was dressing us up as two turds.”

Punch Drunk Love

“The night before my mom was about to wed, my friend and I got into a fist fight against 4 other guys. We actually won then a 5th guy came up from behind and popped me with something in his hand. This is from the wedding album that next day!”
