The Band-Aid

funny school picture

“This is my first grade school picture. I was still healing from a very nasty bike wreck where I completely ate it on a huge hill and took a big chunk out of my forehead and broke my middle finger, among other general road rash nasties. I guess it didn’t bother me too badly- either that or I had the fake smile down-pat. I have to give props to my mom who ordered a complete package of photos from this year just like every other… giant band-aid and all.”

Harriet Potter

“This is my 4th grade school picture- it was in the yearbook, the one I gave to my friends, family, grandmas, even my 4th grade crush. At the time, I didn’t think anything was wrong with my smile. There are tons of pictures of me as a kid around that age where I smiled like that. It wasn’t until I got older & looked back that I realized how utterly ridiculous I looked. I also think the glasses just tie the whole thing together. I truly look like Harry Potter’s long lost sister.”

Twinsies

“My mom thought it would be a good idea to cut my hair like hers, get me an outfit like hers, and get our picture taken in front of a field. I didn’t.”

Guess Who Came To Dinner

funny grandparents picture

“This photo was from a period in my life my family inappropriately calls “The Chernobyl Years” (to describe the awkward phase of re-growth after all my hair fell out when I was about three.) ┬áIt was taken at home, but I have absolutely no idea who the guy is. I asked my parents and other members of my family and no one can identify him. Clearly, he whispered something terrifying into my ear and it made my eyebrows fall off and turned my hand into a dead house spider.”
