Thistle - Behind The Awkwardness

“This a wonderful picture of my husband when he had a patch over his left eye. He told me that his dad made him pose forever to take a picture, and my husband, fed up trying to get the right pose for him decided to grab the first “flower” he saw. I guess that his right eye wasn’t that good either because, that flower was basically thistle, which is considered one of the ugliest weeds in Spain.”

“My brother must have just turned 14 or 15 which apparently means that there is no party anymore. Instead he was stuck with an undecorated cake and a chicken pox/calamine lotion covered little sister to take his picture with. Clearly, neither one of us was very happy about it.”

“This is a photo of my wife in the late 80′s with her father waiting for her prom date to pick her up. As you can see by the photo, she wasn’t very happy posing for a pic with shirtless dad.”

She Bangs

She Bangs - Behind The Awkwardness

“The day before school pictures 1984 my mom was complaining that I wore black too often (all the time). So after making myself beautiful on school picture day I grabbed an old white sweater vest out of her closet and wore it to school. She still was not pleased with my school photos. Wonder why?”

Tick Tick Boom

Tick Tick Boom - Behind The Awkwardness

“My (then) fiance (now new hubby!) and I decided to compile childhood pictures for a slideshow to have at our recent wedding reception.  When going through his stack of photos, nothing could have prepared me for this gem I came across! And to my surprise, he thought it was an awesome picture and wondered why I was laughing so hard!  (His words – “That is a really cool picture – I love that picture!” )  I still don’t understand what a ladder and boom-box have to do with beachwear. And why is he posing like a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model?”

Baggy

Baggy - Behind The Awkwardness

“Mom decided to save money on costumes that “you only wear once.” She tied trash bags on my brother and I and stuffed them with newspaper, smeared brown eye shadow on our faces and pasted big signs on our chests that said TRASH.”
