Behind The Awkwardness: Night Terror

“It was late at night and my Sun Conure was sleeping in his fuzzy hut as usual. I thought it would be cute to get a shot of him peeking out of it, but when you put a large scary flashing object in a birds cage in the middle of the night, I guess it’s pretty terrifying.”

Crappy Birthday

“This must have been my 10th or 11th birthday. It was a custom that the cousins would give out the birthday spankings, but apparently it got a little rough. I think I look terrified. It’s like a scene out of “Lord of the Flies.” Notice the John Travolta poster in the background, and the fact that my brother is laughing maniacally and holding a leather belt.”

Honker

“This is a picture of me blowing out candles at my birthday. At the time I loved that clown and he came to a few of my birthday parties, but now I look back at the pictures and they just look…horrifying. I’m really surprised I’m not afraid of clowns after seeing this picture.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Run For The Border

“This is a shot of my husband and I leaving our wedding reception and heading to Mexico for our honeymoon. My very inebriated Uncle Dale walked up as we were leaving, tapped on my new husband’s window, and yelled out ‘If y’all go to Taco Bell, bring me back a taco!’ Unfortunately, we missed out on getting a shot of him dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in the courtyard by himself…”

Behind The Awkwardness: Fried Tofu

“A photo of my cat, Tofu. She doesn’t like cold weather much. In winter, after we cook dinner, she sometimes curls up in the frying pan because of the warmth.”
