Behind The Awkwardness

Marking His Territory

“This picture was taken in July 2012 for my daughter’s 3 month photos. We decided to let the dog join us, and my daughter was supposed to rest on the his side, but it looks like the he’s about to pee on her. My son is just miserable, and his popped Polo collar makes him look like he has stud earrings.”

The Cup

“1975. Little league. In the middle of a game, the league photographer showed up to snap our team photograph. That inning, I had been playing catcher and was wearing all of the catcher’s gear– chest protector, face mask, helmet, shin guards and of course, the team cup which I wore over the uniform. I forgot to remove something before the photograph was snapped and to this day, I believe the photographer got a helluva good laugh out of it.”

Christmas Chicken

“My parents took my brother and I to a Christmas Party in a fancy hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. Instead of having a Santa Clause, they had a Christmas Chicken instead. We don’t seem too pleased.”

The Toss Up

“This was taken at the precise moment I threw the Bride’s Bouquet to the bachelorette who would be next in line to be married. Clearly, both of my friends wanted the honors.”

The Caddie

Ever since my older sister was born, my dad was filming and taking photos of us. Then I was born and we went to Hersey park. It seems having a baby in a stroller helped equip dad with a way to carry his camera bag.

“Yes, my father’s ventriloquist dummy, Gurgle Worthington, was a part of the family.”

It’s My Birthday

“We were celebrating my daughter’s first birthday and this picture was snapped of my daughter, her father and her nana. She did NOT want to take any pictures and did NOT want to be held.”

Journey To The Center Of The Earth

“My class had to do a project where we were a living museum. Somehow, my ‘exhibit’ was the Earth itself. This was the end result, and I’m so proud of this picture I have it framed in my apartment to confuse guests.”

A Spoonful

“This is me back in ’93 at the Brantford Skating Carnival. The show was beauty and the beast, and I was a piece of cutlery (a spoon). I had to wear a horrible white unitard, and everyone said I looked like a toilet seat. The worst part is when we were on the ice, it glowed in the dark!”

Backstabber

“I was home for the Holiday’s after I joined the Navy and completed boot camp. My father thought we should have a family portrait. My brother picked up a knife and held it over my unsuspecting father’s head.”
