Mumsy and Popscicle


This is me, my mama and pops from EuroTrip '04. I went with a few friends and my parents went as well. We got a great deal on flights because it was the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers first flight.

Anyhow-each group went about doing the things that were of interest to them, and occasionally we met up and spent some time together. This was from the evening that we met up in London.

Something about this picture jumped out to me today. (Aside from the fact that I am standing at a VERY unflattering angle.) For one, yes, we are the cheesy tourists who do things like stuff ourselves into London phone booths. And while the scanning quality of this leaves much to be desired, my new favorite part of this picture is the couple gettin' busy against the booth!! I never noticed that before.

I love how aware of the camera the young woman is.....and how wildly unaware the man is.

I think there is some sort of generalization about men and women that I could make here, but I can't quite sum it up with any satisfaction. Feel free to take a stab at it yourself.

What I love is that I didn't even notice the make-out couple until you pointed it out!

It's definitely quite an action shot.

Jillian said...

Action-yes.....but not particularly enjoyable.

Yeah, it looks like an exceedingly slobbery kiss. The kind you have to use your whole arm to clean up after...

By the way I missed the making out couple too.

And in my defence, It was freezing cold. I had on like three sweaters and a pea coat.....I hate winter clothes!

Rachael said...

Is that funny that I totally noticed the couple. I thought they were some friends that were posing for your picture. What an ugly looking kiss! YUCK!

Jennifer said...

I noticed the couple also. NASTY!

Melissa said...

Yep, first thing I noticed was the couple and the dude trying to swallow that poor girls' face!
Great pic!

Totally missed the couple until you pointed them out.

I think she's thinking "Crap! Those stupid American tourists are ruining my moment!"

And I think he's thinking "If she doesn't start sucking back, my tongue is going to get cold."
