How The Worst Photograph Of Me Ended Up On The Internet

I took the worst picture of me while taking my I fight with everyone photo collage.

I kept laughed out loud each time I looked at it while simultaneously thinking: No one should ever see this photography since I’ve already been informed I should change my avatar to look beautiful rather than vaguely bored.

But Scott walked in and I couldn’t resist asking if he wanted to see it before I hid the horrid thing away forever.

Me: I’m warning you, Scott. You might not be attracted to me after seeing it.

Scott: Alex? Just show it to me.

I look like I'm placing a personal ad for a horse fetish magazine.

Scott: It’s not that bad.

Me: Wait, WHAT? You think I look like that?

Scott: I don’t know. Sometimes.

Me: Do you realized this is the WORST REACTION YOU COULD HAVE? You were supposed to laugh at the photography and then we’d never speak of it again. Now, I have to blog about it. Which means I have to post the photo. Thanks a lot, dude.

And that’s how the worst photograph of me ended up on the Internet.

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. Hahah! Well at least you’ll know that when you ever ask him if these jeans make your ass look fat, you’ll get a fake answer.
    Kidding. I think men are cautious when they’re asked. It’s like we are giving them a trick question.
    But that face is pretty epic.

  2. I hate when I think a photo of me is horrible and my friends assure me it isn’t. But I think that happens to everyone, so it turns out we’re all horribly ugly sometimes!

  3. I can’t stop laughing about the horse fetish magazine. I’m literally about to roll around the ground. You do have very nice teeth by the way. Any horse would be proud to own them!
