Baby On Board

“My parents were just kinda poor musicians back in the early 90s. We lived in the Florida keys and didn’t have a car so they did what they could to get to the grocery store and back. They attached the milk crate to the back of the scooter and I think they used a bungee chord as a seat belt.”

Tale Of The Tape

“My dad said I hated wearing pants when I was a baby so to keep me from getting carpet burn, he loosely duct taped paper towels to my legs-notice my great grandma staring in disbelief.”

Rewriting History

“Always known for her unique brand of tact, my nan doctored this photograph from my christening by replacing my dad’s face with my sister’s. This was done after my parents’ divorce. Whenever I would ask my nan about this photo, she would say, ‘Your dad? No I don’t think he was there on that day.'”
