Condolences - Family Portrait

“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

Sausage For Dinner - Behind The Awkwardness

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

Drive-Thru Safari - Behind The Awkwardness

“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.”

The Scream 2

The Scream 2 - Family Portrait

“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.”
