Behind The Awkwardness

When Laura Ashley Attacks

“This is a photo of my mom, younger sister, and me visiting my mom’s parents in Scottsdale, AZ in 1989. My grandmother, an old-school WASP, ordered these matching Laura Ashley dresses for the occasion. There’s no good explanation of my modified bowl-mullet hairstyle, however.”

One Big Happy Family

“My brothers hated having their picture taken, so I’m guessing that’s what’s up with them. As for the rest of us, I don’t know what the problem is.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Fish Food

“When I was about 9 or 10, my mum and dad took me and my sister on holiday to Wales. My dad is the biggest wind up merchant and never happy until he can make a kid cry. On this occasion, he had convinced me that the lake was full of man eating piranha fish and 6 ft deep. This was taken by mum, you can’t see my sister laughing behind her, but my whining and protesting at the prospect of being fish food made for a good photo that’s haunted me for years. Dad has just confessed after 30 yrs that he felt bad for making me cry!”
