Behind The Awkwardness

Love Tap

“This is my older sister and my father. She got boxing gloves for Christmas and thought it would be a good idea to challenge our father. From the picture, you can see the he accidentally won that challenge. And don’t worry, nobody was hurt :)”

Snow Day

“This is a picture of little me on my first real snow day. What compelled my mother to buy this snowsuit, let alone dress me in it and bring me out in public, I have no idea.”

Get Into The Groovy

“This was taken in the Fall of 1970.  My dad was studying for a PhD in Theatre, so he was taking a costuming class.  For some reason, he decided that it would be a good idea to make the family matching outfits.  Apparently, I was the only one brave enough to show my true feelings.”

East Germany

“With relatives in West Germany (before the reunification in 1989), we were in the lucky position to get some Levis jeans or damn hot fake snakeskin pants, like me (in fact we get only the old worn out and ugly stuff from them).”

Christmas Pig

“Cubans butcher and eat a pork on Christmas eve. This is my grandpa making me pose with the remains of dinner while he talked to it! He was a big joker. I was horrified.”

Married On The 4th Of July

“This is my older sister Angela’s wedding. They were wearing the hats because our mother said they made everyone look elegant. My sister had a 4th of July wedding because she is a redneck at heart and that is the reason of the red, white, and blue flowers and streamers. Oh, and one of the flowers girls had just puked.”

Out Of The Picture

“My grandma wasn’t too happy when my dad and my step-mom got divorced. She decided the best way to handle it was to cut her out, literally. I am the one to the right feeling a little left out.”

Captain Hooked

“This is my husband and I the night of our wedding. His “friends” thought it would be funny to put a fish hook on the steering wheel of the car, because I “HOOKED” him. In our celebratory state he got the hook stuck in his hand. We had to go to the ER to get it removed and he had to get a tetanus shot. The ER staff took this picture and gave us back the hook to keep.”
