School Photos

The Crossing Guard

“My mother sent me to school on 4th grade picture day with my hair in little pigtails and a cute outfit. I threw my favorite shirt in my book bag and when it was my turn to get my photo taken, I put on my shirt and my crossing guard helmet and badge. Imagine her surprise when she opened the picture envelope and saw her little girl drunk with crossing guard power.”

Number 2

“This is a picture of my sister-in-law. Why did the photographer think this was a good idea? Why did her mom decide to order the pictures?”

The Triangle

“My mother got her hairdresser diploma in 1987. I was a poor innocent victim of her experiments. I guess she put a billiard triangle around my head and put in some hairspray.”

Fit To Be Tied

“My Mamaw gave my Uncle Greg strict instructions not to untie his tie for picture day. He didn’t listen. And then couldn’t remember how to tie it back.”

Got Goth?

“1991 High school Graduation photo. I was goth. Can you tell? All of the kids got 2 sets of photos, one with and one without the cap and gown. I refused to wear the cap for either photo. It didn’t fit anyway.”

Keyboard Cat

“I played keyboard in elementary school band and school photos were sometimes full of the rock and roll that comes with the territory.”
