Christmas Cards

“I found this photo while going through some old photos of my parents. The looks on some of the people combined with the bright clothes and cards in the background cracked me up.”

School Ties - Behind The Awkwardness

School Ties

“As was tradition in our family, we were taking our first day of school photos.  The cat, Cuddles, had been posing with us in some of our earlier shots and then ran off.  I was whining because I wanted to have the cat in the pictures.  My brother, intolerant of my whining, punched me and told me to shut up.  This made me cry and I started crying harder when I realized my mom was still taking pictures.”

Haunted House - Behind The Awkwardness

Haunted House

“This is me somewhere around 1981-82 with a demon at a local haunted house that ran every year. I was addicted to horror movies as a kid (and still am) so whenever the haunted house started up, I’d beg my mom let me to go in with the lights off.  After an endless amount of badgering, she finally let me go through in the dark. Expecting me to come running back out screaming, she stayed by the entrance only to see me come bouncing out the exit with a huge smile on my face. To commemorate this, she let me pose for a picture with the demon. As you can see, my smile refused to fade even a little bit and I was probably more than a little overdressed for the occasion.”
