School Photos

The Rub

“This is my husband when he was 6 or 7. His grandma sent him to school on PICTURE DAY in this shirt. You can’t see the bottom, but the shirt actually says ‘Rub it easy, make it hard.’ No joke. His grandma obviously was clueless. Needless to say, he didn’t wear it to school again.”

“I took my 2002 Senior Year with my bird, Jeff. It made the yearbook. Ten years later, I caught him reflecting on our long history. Sentimentality in its truest form.”
