Welcome To Arkansas - Behind The Awkwardness

“During a road trip from Kansas to Florida in 1987, this was my standard pose for all state welcome signs. None more appropriate than Arkansas.”

Living In The Pastels

Living In The Pastels - Behind The Awkwardness

“We actually were dressed like this regularly. Pastels were an everyday spring wardrobe necessity. Mom actually put a bowl on our heads to cut our hair for these pics.”

Fanny Pack

Fanny Pack - Behind The Awkwardness

“Me circa 1993, age 11: Fedora, check. Haircut by mom, check. Oversize ‘SuperCuts’ fanny-pack, check. Star Trek keychain on display, check. Unfounded confidence that I looked awesome, check. I wish I knew where I got that fanny-pack – I never visited a SuperCuts (or any other haircut place) when I was a kid. I do distinctly remember being SO EXCITED to have a fanny-pack large enough to hold a decently-sized paperback book, snacks, and god knows what else.”

Send In The Clowns

Send In The Clowns - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is a picture of me and my cousins. My grandma used to sew us matching costumes every year for halloween. She decided it would be a good idea to take us to get professional pictures done in these matching clown costumes. When I asked her what she was thinking years later she replied, ‘I thought you would appreciate them someday.’ Thanks, Grandma, for the thoughts!”

American Revolution

American Revolution - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is our ONLY professional family photo circa 1980. It was a fundraiser through my school. My mother made me wear my marching band outfit. It was humiliating and not only is the picture forever, it was witnessed by my entire grade school. (I love the pic now though!)”

The Force Awakens (Awkwardly)

The Force Awakens (Awkwardly) - Behind The Awkwardness

“Have you ever had that horrible recurring dream where you are trick-or-treating but forgot to wear pants? In honor of the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I present this classic photo of me and my brother on Halloween, 1978. The joy of this photo is in the details. My brother’s little hand sticking out the top to try to hold the box up… My lack of pants (though I *am* wearing tights, I swear)… Couldn’t he have had a little less cardboard and given some to me? Also note that we needed to (incorrectly) label ourselves since no one knew what we were supposed to be — I wonder why. Sigh.”

Nice Shirt, Grandpa

Nice Shirt, Grandpa - Behind The Awkwardness

“My Dad came to visit me after the birth of my 1st child. I took this picture as he held her. After I got the photos back, I realized the slaughter behind her as she slept! Kentucky Fried nightmare.”
