Groin Eye Lens

“Circa 1982. I’m the baby being held by my sister. We had lined up the cans to crush them for recycling. My Dad got down low on a camp chair to take the pic, and accidentally included his crotch and beer belly (look closely).”

Hair Me Downs

“My mom (right) did my hair as a child and I believe I was subjected to hairspray poisoning which led me down a road of bad choices in picking men. It’s been like wearing hairspray beer goggles for 23 years.”

Tour de Pants

“Taken in our driveway in Oberursel, Germany in 1988 (we’re from the US but lived there for a few years). Good thing my Dad’s instinct was to take a picture before helping me.”

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.”

Jortman

“This is my Dad prancing around in his cut off jeans. The two older women in the background look generally concerned, and with good reason. Yeah I see where I get my extreme enthusiasm for jorts.”

Mane Attraction

“Yeah, this is supposed to be a family photo, but let’s be honest: the real star is my brother’s ginormous, outrageously over-teased hair.”

My Sister’s Vice

“I’m with Tubbs. My sister with Crockett. She was in love with Don Johnson back in the day, and couldn’t help herself. Notice her  strategically placed hand on his chest while gently nudging his cardboard nipple.”
