Last Friday Night

Last Friday Night - Behind The Awkwardness

“Everything I had going on for me summed up in one picture: feathered bangs, orange and black rubber bands on my braces because it was around Halloween (I did that for every holiday), glasses (which my mom picked out in peach so they ‘blended with my face), a high pony tail because I was on the dance team, and turquoise earrings (duh, I live in New Mexico). Years later my friend would point out how similar I looked to Katy Perry in the “Last Friday Night” video.”

“This is my friend Kate. I recovered this picture from helping her move a few years ago and with her permission am sending to you. 80′s Kate is fond of books, sitting and perms.”

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink - Behind The Awkwardness

“When I was 9, my teeth were so messed up that I had to wear “headgear” to create more space for my overcrowded mouth. The only say I had in the matter was choosing the color; either clear plastic or pink, which I hated. I asked them if there was any way possible that they could make it electric green, because apparently, that would make me look “cool.” The dental assistant shook her head and looked at the ground. I sighed and chose clear. Apparently, she checked the wrong box on the order form because when it was time to pick up the contraption, it came out of the box hot pink. Mortified, I begged my mom not to make me wear the pink thing to school. Fortunately for me, I had a very understanding mother. So, I only wore it at home and on car trips to see my grandparents.”

Lone Star

Lone Star - Behind The Awkwardness

“My dad owned a restaurant in Austin and they had the bear from the Paul Newman film The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean come to a party. This is the 1970′s so a loose bear drinking Lone Star and being fed tootsie rolls from little kids mouths was okay… right?”
