The Fall Guy

The Fall Guy - Behind The Awkwardness

“My son and I went on a white water rafting excursion this summer. Clearly I was a bit nervous about going over the 15 foot water fall. I didn’t realize how terrified I looked until this photo was posted by the rafting company back at the store.”

Body Rock

Body Rock - Behind The Awkwardness

“Back in the 80′s a body wave permanent hairstyle seemed to be the rage. In hindsight, I’m glad that era has passed on. I have a few more like this, but probably none that better captured the 80′s fashion like this one.”

That Guy

That Guy - Behind The Awkwardness

“During the summer of 1989, my BFF and I were staying on the beach with her parents. We were both 16. We spent the morning in the hotel’s pool, where this older man kept watching us and grinning. Later that afternoon, we were dressed and ready to go out, but first we stopped at the Tiki Bar near the pool to take some pics of each other in our totally 80s outfits (yes, I realize my outfit and hair here could absolutely stand alone in their awkwardness, but I digress). Wouldn’t you know, the same older man showed up and stood behind me, still grinning, while my BFF took my picture. I don’t know if he was being truly creepy, or if he was just an odd old guy who got a kick out of the two teenyboppers at the pool and all the giggling we no doubt did, but it sure made for an awkward photo!”

“This was the last time I tried to get my kids to pose for a family picture. My youngest daughter was having none of it. She would not cooperate with the photographer and we almost came to blows over it. This was the closest we could get to a happy family picture.”

“I’m safely assuming drugs were the reason that led my parents to have a t-shirt of my face made back in the 80′s.  Now, it’s my son’s favorite thing to wear.”

“This is a picture of my grandmother, older brother, and my dad. The photo was taken well before I was born, but I can guarantee this was my dad’s idea.”
