“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 was about 5 years old and my mom made me this jumpsuit. It took her about a week. You would’ve thought staring at that fabric for 7 days, it may have crossed her mind that Budweiser may not have been appropriate for a 5 year old! NOPE!”

“My mom wanted to take pictures the night before my cousins wedding that I was going to be in. She said I didn’t need to put on the pants because she was only taking it waist up.
“Probably not the best use of an exclamation point.”

Back yard wedding and a husky who could not wait. Maybe too much at the open bar?
