Awkward Family Story: The Funeral

When I was pregnant with my first child, my Grandma passed away. I didn’t have anything to wear to the funeral, so I had to settle on a low-cut maternity blouse that made my breasts look enormous and made me very self-conscious. After the funeral, one of my aunts approached me and in front of the entire family, loudly announced: “You are getting a fabulous chest!!!” I turned six shades of red and blurted out defensively, “I can’t help it. Since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve gone up a couple of cup sizes.” She was actually referring to a chest of drawers that I had unknowingly inherited….um…yeah…very awkward.

Making pillow-top mattresses and 600 thread-count sheets look really stupid.

The Watering Hole

The Watering Hole - Babies

“I was born in Spain (Air Force Brat) and we had a bidet in the bathroom. My mom caught me using it as a water fountain (they “never” used it) and let me continue using it. Awkward!”

The Joker

The Joker - Babies

“In the photo is my grandpa holding me as a baby in 1989. After grandpa retired, he started a side job as a clown, where he’d go to birthday parties and do magic tricks. He also often wore his boxing shorts from his days as a heavyweight boxer at Michigan State. He was dressing upto entertain the grandkids that day, and the boxing/clown combination certainly made for an interesting photo.”
