Cool Ray

Cool Ray - Behind The Awkwardness

“My parents had a traveling puppet show that my sister and I grew up performing in from ages 8-18. This is one of our promotional pictures of us with a puppet we worked together, named… Cool Ray. YES. Kids could buy a picture for $ .25. And did. I’m on the left, apparently sporting the same hair as the puppet.”

Die Pigs

Die Pigs - Kids

“This is from my five-year-old son’s kindergarten workbook.  They were supposed to  write the last letters for rhyming words.  When I asked him about it, he said ‘Oops!  I meant to write a G!  Haha!’  At this point he has no idea what word he actually wrote.”

Sugar Grills

Sugar Grills - School Photos

“Classic sugar grill.  Story goes that I chewed on my bottle so much that it ruined my teeth.  My neighbors used to chase me around the yard with pliers saying they were going to rip out my teeth and sell the silver.”

Party Like It’s 1995

Party Like It’s 1995 - More Holidays

“I was nine years old, and my younger sister was almost 7.  I vaguely remember my mom giving us a ton of New Year’s party favors for us to play with. Apparently we tried them on, and she wanted a photo. Thank God she caught us in our best clothes…a magenta wind suit and short-alls with tights and a turtleneck. I guess this was also that phase where she let us do our own hair. You might also notice that I am wearing a Nutcracker necklace that I was particularly fond of. Everything about this photo screams  cool.”

The Loophole

The Loophole - Babies

“I hated my baby sister. I hated being dressed like her. I hated being forced to play with her. And when I was told not to hit her I found a loophole. We’re thick as thieves now. But then? I’d ripped her stupid blonde head off.”
