OG Napoleon Dynamite - School Photos

OG Napoleon Dynamite

“My senior yearbook photo, shot in the summer of 1977. My mother handed me her charge card (with a note allowing me to use it) and dared to let me go alone to pick-out my photo attire. She was horrified when I brought home a green leisure suit, sans tie. She marched me back to Montgomery Ward and returned it, and purchased this proper three-piece corduroy suit, in rust, complete with a clip-on tie and matching suede shoes. Not only was I Napoleon Dynamite before he was even born, when I looked at the yearbook photos the next year, most of the boys wearing leisure suits didn’t graduate. Thanks Mom!”

Portrait Of A Doomed Relationship - Couples

Portrait Of A Doomed Relationship

“This is a picture of my college roommate and his girlfriend, taken when they were in high school. They planned to stay together and each had photos taken like this–she’s on the phone because they ‘planned to call each other every day.’ He hung this photo on his wall in our freshman dorm room. They didn’t last.”

The Outfit Checklist - Teens

The Outfit Checklist

“My checklist for leaving the house: plastic visor? Check. Awkward goggles? Check. Pink plastic Swatch watch? Check. Michael Jackson-style glove? Check. Outfit purchased at the thrift store? Check. Self esteem much higher than situation warrants? Check. ‘I’m ready, let’s hit the road!'”

My Many Fashion Mistakes - Misc

My Many Fashion Mistakes

“This was me in 8th grade, in ’92 or ’93. I don’t know what is worse: the perm, the ribbon, the tucked-in shirt that no sensible middle schooler would ever wear, the black shoes with white socks, the way-too-obvious black watch, the ’97 for my graduating year or the fact that I was trying to look cool. Epic fail!”
