Bottom Line

“I was 6 and on a road trip through southern Brazil with my family. At a petrol stop, somebody thought it would be nice to take a picture of me mimicking the plaque which points to the restrooms. I’m not sure if my father included the stranger inadvertently or not but to this day he swears it was a mistake.”

Turqlenecks

“It was the 80s. My dad thought it was a good idea to take a picture in the woods with snow. The look on his face doesn’t validate the brilliance of the idea. Mom chose the color of our shirts. Apparently she expected more of a tropical setting.”

Deck The Halley’s

“This is not a picture of terrified 6-yr-old me being held hostage by Santa Claus and his not-so-little helper, but actually a real holiday photo shoot at a toy store during Christmas season in 1985. In case you’re wondering what Santa’s helper was wearing, it was a Halley’s Comet-inspired costume because Halley’s Comet was all the rage in 1985.”

“My wife on the far right and her family circa 1999 right after their dad yelled at the kids for not taking the portraits seriously.”
