Lost In Translation - Behind The Awkwardness

“I was going through old family photos with my best friend when I came across this gem. Looks like the shirt should say “sweatshirt”, but the way he’s positioned it looks like it says “Eat…”

Soap In Your Eyes

Soap In Your Eyes - Behind The Awkwardness

“I am about eleven in this picture. I had just finished washing my mother’s car and was walking back to the house to go inside to pour out the water. On my way inside, I tripped and the soapy water sloshed up and into my face. For some reason, this was a catastrophe. I was also, for some reason, convinced that if I opened my eyes, the soap would get into them and blind me. I distinctly recall arguing with my father (who always had his camera at hand and saw this as a golden moment to capture) that I would, indeed, lose my eyesight, even though he kept saying I wouldn’t. At this point, I was crushed that nobody would believe me, nobody had the heart to comfort me, and nobody had the care to hand me a towel (I think I ended up using the sleeve of my sweater).

I’d like to say that’s just soapy water dripping off my chin, but with the amount of blubbering going on, it’s quite likely it’s a mixture of both soapy water and drool. And yes, if you’re wondering, this moment still comes up in conversations with my father. (My mother says there are too many similar ones for her to recall.)”

“I have no idea why I am holding a knife or have a grenade strapped to my waist, but since I’m crying I can pretty much guarantee my older brother had something to do with it.”

Your Dress is Calling

Your Dress is Calling - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

“This is a photo of me – my friends thought this was worth sharing with the site as I’ve become infamous for the phone dress. I don’t know what my mother was thinking, but I think it was, “One day, my daughter’s friends are really going to enjoy making fun of this.”

Over Capacity

Over Capacity - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is a photo of me (in the yellow suit) and my friend Melissa hanging out in a kiddie pool with the three very elderly, very large women-all sisters-who lived next door to me. They were always referred to as ‘the Old Ladies’ and would babysit me sometimes. I don’t know why my parents didn’t stop this from happening. Perhaps they knew the photo would haunt me the rest of my life.”
