Broken Wings - School Photos

Broken Wings

“This photo is so 90s, I can’t look directly at it without getting eyestrain. I am 13-14 here, so this is about 1992. The carefully-constructed bird’s wing bangs, the big earrings, the dress-over-a-shirt combo… and this was before I knew how to tame my eyebrows, so there’s that, too. The only thing I can be grateful for is that I was not allowed to wear makeup yet. I can only imagine how that would have turned out.

I did not date at all in high school.”

My Mother’s Blood, Sweat, And Tears - School Photos

My Mother’s Blood, Sweat, And Tears

“I think I’m somewhere around 10 in this photo, which would put it somewhere in the mid-80s. This hairstyle is the result of curlers left in overnight and a curling iron in the morning, and a lot of my mother’s blood, sweat, and tears. It is little wonder why I had no friends as a child.”

Digger The Dermatophyte - Halloween

Digger The Dermatophyte

“The Lamisil commercial featuring the toe fungus ‘Digger the Dermatophyte’ caught my four-year-old’s eye just before Halloween. She had a great time at the party. She was so pooped that she went to bed still in costume. I have a picture the next morning with her clutching her tail! I don’t know at what point during the party the tail came off but she still had it!”
