Why Did I Take These Photos?

I have a few tricks to remember stories for my blog. I leave voice memos, write myself notes and take pictures. The voice memos are the most helpful because I pretty much transcribe them to blog form, but the photos are the most fun. Mostly because I have no idea what I was trying to tell myself.

Welcome to my time capsule gone completely wrong and incredibly pointless.

Golden Double Stuff Oreos photo
Besides being terribly delicious, I have no idea why I would take this photo. Or take it without posing with the Oreos like the BFFs we already are.
iPhone and I with Hat photo
I'm not sure if this is about my iPhone, my extraordinary hat or my healing eyebrow.

I have a vague recollection of my son telling a story about a man leaving the house to destroy his enemies with his ninja skills but I cannot be sure.
Orange in Sink photo
I think the orange is stuck. But it's not in my sink anymore so I either won this battle with a knife or the orange escaped and is hiding in the bathroom.
Box of Random photo
All I can think is I am the worst hoarder ever.

And then I stumbled upon this photo. I remember EXACTLY why I took it…

Crazy Hair photo
Scott let me spend most of my day looking like this. With crazy hair. This photo is proof that he needs to love me more.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. You’re a genius! Pictures with my phone! I’m forever looking for a scrap of paper to jot down blog ideas. I never in a million years would’ve thought of taking pictures. You rock. Even with crazy hair. 😉

  2. If I was taking the Oreo photo, it would totally be to make snarky comments about the company’s inability to “spel.”

  3. That hat is totally picture-worthy.

    I recognize that Lion King ruler – my daughter is using one just like it right now while she writes a letter. She actually has four or five of them. Clearly we spend too much time at Subway.

  4. Funny-I am not much for “mainstream” cookies-but I discovered these last month. They live up to their hype and are blog worthy! Thanks!
