Merry Gothmas

“This photo is from the year my family got a German Shepherd puppy and more importantly the year I discovered the deep darkness of the soul and Bauhaus. My mom got a coupon for a free family/pet photo from the local Petco and dragged us there for our family Christmas card photo. Since it was free we didn’t get to pick which photo we got, so even though I smiled for like a dozen shots THIS was the one they sent us, probably because the teenager working the booth found it as funny as I do now. I got in so much trouble for it at the time, but I had totally forgotten about it until this season when my mom found it and sent it to me. Luckily she finds it funny now, but I guess since I never stopped wearing all black or listening to music performed by morose skeletons, she has had 20 years to get used to it.”
