Maroon 5

“My mother must have ransacked the Sears catalog to purchase these Sears Tuff Skins maroon denim outfits (with white top-stitching) for all five of us kids. She got matching outfits for herself and Dad, who aren’t in the photo. Then we all went to Six Flags Over Georgia, where we were mistaken for – on multiple occasions – either a gospel group or a a country music band. As the eldest child (12) and only girl…I was completely mortified and spent most of the day dragging 20 feet behind my family. Flash forward 44 years and it is now my brothers’ and my most “precious” (and totally hilarious) memory! Embrace the awkward!”

An Easter Possession

“This photo has baffled my family since it was taken on Easter 1984. When my mom got the photo back, she immediately had me try to pose like this and I couldn’t. We’ve never figured it out. No photoshop, and I assure you I am neither possessed by a demon nor anywhere near that flexible.”

Chuck E. Spanks

“Me on my birthday, December of 1982. Not sure what is more embarrassing, the home perm I got for my birthday or the fact a giant mouse is giving me birthday ‘spankings’.”

Drop Shot

“One of my close friends snapped this photo of my two-year-old niece on a nice family stroll with my sister. At first he thought he’d just captured a nice candid photo until he looked closer.”
