The Chug

“This is a picture of my family on Easter sometime in the 90’s. I’m on the right with the stonewashed pink pants, mullet to match my older brother’s. The only thing in this picture that focuses the awkwardness away from me is my Grandpa in the next room slamming what I hope to be his first Easter beer of the day because if memory serves me correctly, we always took our pictures before church”

Condolences

“I’m in red, with my 2nd cousin and her grandmother (which was my grandmother’s sister.) We’re standing in a family cemetery, in front of my great-grandfather’s tombstone. Why in the heck are we posing with Cabbage Patch dolls? ‘cuz it was cool. We certainly weren’t.”

Sausage For Dinner - Behind The Awkwardness

Sausage For Dinner

At least, I think it’s a sausage. This is my mother and two of her sisters-in-law. My dad is taking the picture, and it looks like they are competing for his attention each in her own way.”

Drive-Thru Safari - Behind The Awkwardness

Drive-Thru Safari

“This photo of my family was taken at one of those drive-through safari places in the 80s. My brother thought the politically incorrect “tribesmen” were real and was terrified. My mom hates snakes. I’m the one with the live snake (yes, it’s real) around my neck and although I love them, I’m struggling because it was a lot heavier than me. And my Dad? He’s just excited that his shorts are shorter than my mom’s.”

“This is photo of my family and I at a beach-themed family dance put on by the school. Unfortunately I’m the one with the full denim outfit and black work boots with orange laces.”

The Scream 2

“Found this in a box of photos from my parent’s attic about 5 years ago. No one remembers the details including my mom. Maybe it was too traumatic…. I’m the one screaming.”
