A Sisterly Engagement

A Sisterly Engagement - Photos

“Someone our school talked my Mom into having my next oldest sister and me pose for what would be the least-seen photo in our family’s history. I was dragged out of 9th grade gym class and forced to don my choir robe, sweat still oozing from my pubescent pores. My sister, Emily wore her 10th grade orchestra band uniform. It wound up looking like an engagement photo, and it’s been a black mark on both of our developmental histories. Horrified by the final product and our over-tweezed eyebrows, this ‘precious family memory’ has been hidden in the shameful confines of my sister’s wallet, and has not seen the light of day for over 30 years.”

The Uncanny Valley - Couples

“This ‘portrait’ (I use the term loosely) was the best man’s wedding gift (I again use the term loosely) for my best friend, Leya and her husband Trevor. He had it ‘commissioned’ this painting based on a photo taken at Trevor’s police academy graduation. The intention was good, the outcome not so. Whenever any of us who present that day see, hear or talk about this portrait we instantly dissolve into uncontrollable laughter. Thankfully, the best man was not pleased with the outcome either and does find the humor in the situation.”

Living On A Prayer - Kids

“Here’s my twins’ 1st-2nd grade basketball team. In the back row is one of my boys (the ginger), normal as can be. Front row, the other ginger, also mine. No idea what he was doing, but the scary thing is that this was the best picture they took of the team. I’d love to see the outtakes!”

Elderly Sisters Still Bicker When Giving Directions

February 7th, 2017

They’ve been sisters for 97 years, but they fight as much as any sisters you know. While driving to a family event, Sheila had her video camera running, and it caught this excellent argument between her grandmother, (age 97, in the frontĀ seat), and herĀ aunt, (age 102, in the back.) When the video begins, the sisters are already arguing over who Sheila’s going to drive around to do errands, but when Sheila takes a wrong turn, the gloves really come off. It’s the kind of fight you can only have after knowing someone for almost a century. Watch the video below.
