Leotard Chic

“I spent much time in a leotard during the late 1970s/early 89s, evidently much to the chagrin of my grandmother and sister, both giving me the stink eye here. Mum seems not to care. Thanks, mum.

Pole Position

“This is me (on the pole), my impressed sister, and my disappointed mother circa 1984. My dancing career never took off but I guess there’s still time.”

Break Something

“This is a picture of my breakdancing club. It’s origins are from Bellerose Queens, NY.  It’s the late 1980s when breakdancing was a thing.  If this doesn’t qualify as awkward IDK what does.”

“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’.”
