Awkward Stoic (workplace?) Christmas
Awkward stoic Christmas picture, but maybe there’s more to the story? Grim reaper just walked past before the picture and muttered, “One of you leaves tonight.” Left to right, “Cool, me, I can’t take it any longer I so look like Gomez Addams I just want to go to a better place. ” Next, “Cool, it’s the old guy, I just know it, I get everything!” Next, “Grimmy was looking hot tonight. I’m gonna do him.” Last, Please take me now. This sweater, the hat, I’m so done.” Or maybe not, maybe they work together, hate each other and just got done with an all out brew-ha-ha. Better still, I think I know. Girl 2nd from left, she spiked the coffee, and is living in anticipation for the rest of them to taste and figure it out.
Awkward Family Christmas
I would definitely call this an awkward Christmas family pose. This is another of those “We’re sending you a picture of the fam with the Christmas Card, Hello!” type pictures. Dad, shock, mom, “eeeeeee!”, left kids, gleeful surprise, middle bottom kid, crapping his jammies, right kid, Slingblade, the early years. Yep, I’d be delighted to do a picture like this. Not. Nice tree though. They’ll fondly remember this pic forever, and they rightly should. Year go past so fast, Christmases fly by. Remember how long they took to get here as kids? Now, boom, how’d that happen?
Awkward Christmas Presents
Awkward Christmas Presents to be sure. At least they’re alive and cheerful, not like the Hannibal Lechter household where, well, the items in the boxes are decidedly less lively. I get that this is a Christmas picture that’s probably used to send with a card to distant family members and maybe friends, but call me crass, but doesn’t also sort of say “We’re arrogant and self important, but most importantly we’re cheap asses, so hey, we’re your gift!” Naw, that can’t be it. And besides, they probably sent a couple hundred dollar bills with the card and picture, right?
