I was cleaning out my laptop bag tonight and I found a bunch of old pictures I forgot were in there. They are way too awesome not to share with you. A few of my friends have actually borrowed them from me for “show and tell.”
Several years ago (probably almost 10, whoa!), before the days of digital photography, I had taken a few of my rolls of film into Walmart to get developed. I kinda miss those days, actually…not getting to see any of your photos until they were developed, and that feeling of excitement and anticipation waiting to see how they turned out.
Anyway, when I picked up my pics from good ol’ Wallymart, they were missing one of my own rolls, and had instead included a roll that was definitely not mine.
Gird your loins my friends, here are a few of the highlights:
(Disclaimer…I don’t hate, but I do laugh.)
I would say that poor child is about to get eaten. But I’m not sure if she has any teeth… And that Kokanee man is a gem. He was a fast favourite for me in these photos.
Yeah, I’d be covering my face too if someone tried to take a picture of me with these two. Nice fanny-pack though. Also, I’m pretty sure that is not a cigarette in Kokanee’s mouth…
“Ha ha ha, look how cool I am as I pretend to drink out of my child’s bottle whilst smoking!”
Notice also the tinfoil on the windows.
And my personal favourite…
Finding this photo felt like Christmas morning. Could I have asked to receive a better one in the mix? I don’t think so. A few things I would like to highlight:
- Kokanee’s “double-cigarette” and…air guitar?
- The man beside Kokanee is wearing a pajama shirt, I’m pretty sure… He looks like a good time.
- The attractive woman with the hat in the centre looks as though she’s having an absolute BLAST.
- The woman beside Kokanee may have once been normal and doesn’t seem to quite fit in with this family. She may be wondering what she has gotten herself into.
- The kids look genuinely happy. I feel bad for them, and I hope they all turned out okay.
Man, an entire roll of these! When I discovered these gems, after laughing for a million years, I called Walmart and let them know about the mix-up. They apologized and said I could return the photos and they would try to locate mine.
But then I thought about it, and I changed my mind. Whatever was on my roll of film was definitely not as good as these. I decided to keep them. I have never regretted this decision, as these pictures have provided hours of entertainment.
Have you ever had your photos mixed up?
