“This photo was taken in August 1984. I was 10 and my sister was 13 (although she looks 40). The Cabbage Patch Kid was Emalia Arlene, and I swear she never left my freaking side. With my boy haircut, huge glasses, and braces, I look like such a mess.”

“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.”

“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.”
