“This photo was unearthed recently from a photo album, that had remained unseen for the past 20 years. No one in the family has any recollection of when and where this photo was taken, including my mother, the person gutting the fish. In fact, up until recently seeing this photo, she would have told you she had never gutted a fish. She also asks: “Why am i wearing sunglasses? And that bandanna?” This would be an amazing photo in itself, without the absurd addition of the mystery hands (no one knows who’s hands these are!), giving the sink a good plunge. As you do, when the person next to you is feverishly gutting a fish!”

“This is a failed photo shoot orchestrated by my mother. I am the screaming baby pulling my brother’s hair. My sister is the oldest child in the back, silently lamenting about how much better her life was before her darling siblings arrived.”

“My niece, in the photo, has a huge fixation with dinosaurs. She takes this one EVERYWHERE she goes (except school because they won’t allow it at the school & it won’t fit in her cubby). Her father, in pic, took her to the father/daughter dance and Choppers came along too!

“This was my photo for my dance recital when I was 11. They wanted us to wear stage makeup. I was mortified that I had to wear this costume, but then my mom pulls out her makeup bag and puts her makeup on me so my face took on a nice shade of brown.”
