Behind The Awkwardness: Gutterball

“At the time of this photo, my family lived in a small town off a busy highway. My little sister was ever wandering off, wherever we went; and she had a tendency to put everything in her mouth. We needed a solution to keep her in sight and out of trouble, while we were outside doing yard work. The only thing we had was baling twine, which we kept tied to the gutter. We had to put her on her “leash” often, which makes her adult preference for bondage rather… awkward.”

Picture Perfect

“This is my family attempting to take an Easter picture circa 1986 in Mobile, AL. I love this because my grandfather is the only one looking. I’m pretty sure this is what all families look like trying to take a family picture with little kids.”

Nurse Jackie

“My dad at his college graduation party with the family… and a stripper! Yep, that’s me hanging off the back of the chair watching. And now I’m a nurse… Hmmm.

Squeeze Play

“This is our daughter, Keira, soon after she was born. I hadn’t quite learned to swaddle her correctly and my wife hadn’t quite learned to burp her correctly. Ah, new parents.”

Thunder Down Under

“A photo of me with a bunch of speedo men (Australian swim team) at Sea World in Florida, circa 1987. My mother was like, “Go get your picture taken with Nigil!”
