Hands On

“My son’s school picture. I don’t know what’s worse, his expression, or the hand creeping in behind him. Needless to say, retakes were done.”

Semi Perm

“We live in a rural super small town in central Illinois. My Aunt who had moved to the ‘big city’ (Chicago) went to beauty school. She came home to visit with her home perm set. We were all impressed.. She set it up in our kitchen and permed me, my mom and my 3 siblings. I had the longest hair so she just did my bangs. Mullets weren’t even a thing yet!”

“My mom thought it would be funny to dress her son as ‘Frank-n-swine’ for Halloween. She was right. 1989.”

Every Picture Tells A Story

“Normally my son takes great school pictures. This year he did not deliver. Needless to say we did not purchase the pictures.”
