“This is a picture of my brother and me. He is 13 years older than I am and he would constantly pick on me growing up. Apparently he couldn’t stop himself during the family photo session.”

The Compromise

The Compromise - Babies

“1979. The first time I had to get my picture taken at JC Penney’s with my baby brother, who had stolen my spotlight a few months before. I threw a tantrum, but then finally agreed to be in the picture. I still refused to smile.”

Suspension Of Disbelief

Suspension Of Disbelief - Family Portrait

“This is a picture of me (the little girl), my brother, and my parents. Yes, my brother is wearing acid washed jeans held up by red suspenders. Yes, my father is rockin’ the pencil ‘stache. Yes, I have the ‘I need an adult’ face. I’m not sure what concerns me more – what my parents are doing to my brother or my brother’s enjoyment of it.”

Awkward Q&A: Head Swap

Awkward Q&A: Head Swap - Behind The Awkwardness

We’re sure you have a lot of questions about our photos, and we do too. We interviewed Chris, the owner of this photo, to get more of the story. Welcome to Awkward Q&A!

Okay, so, what’s the story here? 

This is a photo of my brother holding his new daughter. My daughter was standing behind the couch hugging my brother and it looks like his head is on her body. You can also see my other daughter on the couch next to them, and my Dad looking on. It was taken in 1985 at my home in Edina MN. The daughter sitting on the couch just moved and found this picture as she was sorting things. We all had a good laugh over it.

What’s the gift on the floor, and who was it for? 

The gift was for the baby and included exact same floral patterns as the couch in the case it ripped.

Speaking of floral prints, was everything in that room floral print? 

Pretty much.

Is the couch still in the family? 

The couch now belongs to the baby, who is grown. She is hoping for her own kids soon so she can pass it on and out of her house.

Let’s move on to your Dad. What’s that stain on his shirt? 

Barbecue sauce from the wings he was eating earlier. I think the stain looks like The Virgin Mary when you are really close to it. For that reason the shirt, was never washed.

What is in that can on the end table? 

Hauenstein Beer. My Dad had it with the wings. Only the best for us!

Do people ever confuse your brother with Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride? 

Not yet, but he currently does a musical review of Tony Orlando and Dawn at a Minneapolis American Legion on weekends!

Well played, Chris. Well played.
