Dad

Bottom Line

“I was 6 and on a road trip through southern Brazil with my family. At a petrol stop, somebody thought it would be nice to take a picture of me mimicking the plaque which points to the restrooms. I’m not sure if my father included the stranger inadvertently or not but to this day he swears it was a mistake.”

Helmet On The Head

“My grandma’s toilet was scary high to me when I was a kid and I just couldn’t use it because I was certain I’d fall off. My dad had the perfect solution for me: his motorcycle helmet. So here I am in a helmet, holding on for dear life.”
