“This photo says it all. My oldest brother was and still is the quiet one. My middle brother was always getting in trouble and speaking his mind, and I am still the little sister who sees the good in every situation and always with a smile.”

“One year my sister and I wanted to be the Teletubbies for Halloween, so our mother decided to make the costumes herself. But she couldn’t find any yellow footy pajamas so we were stuck being the same one. I’m the one on the left. As you can tell I was thrilled.”

“That’s me on the left in the sailor suit on the left, and my brother, smiling and content, on the right. In my humble opinion one of the best examples of late 1980s Sears family portrait photos you’ll ever see.
Apparently, no amount of rattle toys and funny voices could shake me out of the existential crisis I was clearly going through at the moment this picture was taken. Or maybe it was just the indignity of that sailor suit. Either way, my brother, on the right, was clearly just fine with the whole procedure.
Ever since this picture was taken it has brought joy to all who see it. When I lived with house mates we had this picture posted in our kitchen with the caption, ‘You might have had a bad day, but at least you’re not as sad as this baby.'”
