Side Eyes

“This was a photo from the 1970s of my parents, aunts, uncles, and little sister. All wearing flannel, all looking off to the side except for one of us.”

Thirtysomething

“I don’t know what’s more awkward–how much I look like a boy, my Mom’s giant glasses, or Dad’s hideous sweater.”

The Ensemble

“This is my kindergarten picture, in 1980. Nothing went right. My city scene polyester shirt is backwards and inside out. The necklace under the shirt, the bruised chin, bloody nose and two silver front teeth go well with the long shag haircut.”

Thanksgiving Meltdown

“That’s me with the curls. Apparently not being allowed to stay at the table was enough to warrant a complete meltdown at the family Thanksgiving meal. Everyone else is doing a great job of ignoring me.”

Fight For Your Right To Party - Friends

Fight For Your Right To Party

“I threw a party while my parents were away. It was the 80’s, so big hair was all the rage, along with cutoff shirts, off-the-shoulder shirts, and partying like there’s no tomorrow. Humidity mixed with my naturally curly hair made for this wonderful look.  The White Castle container on the table was a nice touch.  My parents sure made a statement with the decor.”
