Snacktime Strife

“My six-year-old daughter scribbled this note about her little brother, then stuffed in my hand an hour after she had a snack. It reads: ‘It’s just that everyone pays attention to Jay, not me so no one pays attention to me, so people don’t feed me that much.’ She was apparently starved for more than just attention.”

Dropping The Baton

“I had been excited all day long for my baton recital. My mom had gotten my hair and makeup done and I could not wait to get on stage. However, I did not know there would be pictures involved. When I was presented to the photographer, I was more than pissed. The face you are seeing in this picture is basically me saying ,’Screw you, Mom and Dad.’ And the hell of it all is…the photographer PICKED THIS PICTURE TO PRINT. My parents BOUGHT IT. My parents GAVE COPIES TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. It will live in infamy on numerous refrigerators, in many photo albums, and now, in all its glory all over the web.”

I Dream Of Ricky

“This is me in my bedroom, with puffy Ralph Macchio-style hair, in the industrial loft that I grew up in (hence the water pipes and asbestos ceiling directly over my head). This photo perfectly encapsulates my world at the time, which was MTV and Ricky Schroder.”

Window Watchers

“While I was having a photo shoot, my mother decided it would be totally acceptable to have the photographer take photos of her and my brother creepin’ through the weird window in this photo. As you can tell, I was pissed and didn’t want to have anything to do with this picture. This picture has been making me, family and friends laugh since 1995! Thanks Madre!”

Hand To Neck

“My bestie and I were excited to finally have a cute picture together, until we noticed my son’s hand dangling from my neck like a growth.”

Team Tums

“This is my Mom and her two sisters when they were all flight attendants, apparently doing some pro bono advertising for Tums––and possibly a food review for the in-flight meal at the same time.”
