Recreational

“This is my family showing that windsuits are not just seasonal apparel. For the years of 1990-1995, this was our default family outfit for weddings, funerals, bar-mitzvahs, and the like. True story.”

The Girl Under the Chair

“So my grandfather died today and we’ve been all grieving. Somehow i got roped into the creation of the photo slideshow at the funeral. Everyone brought over their photos for me to scan and I saw this gem. Its my grandfathers step-children (which includes its very own ‘red-headed step-child’, a dude with a mullet, a dude who looks stoned/sleepy,a dude who looks angry, and a A girl under the chair.

The girl under the chair is my little aunt – as in younger than me (she was adopted by my grandfather and step-grandmother).

So on top of being an awkward photo they are, in fact, a pretty awkward family.”

Awkward Band Photo
