Stunned would be a good word

Posted 02-17-2010 at 02:42 PM by BAW

When I was a little girl, I used to snoop around in my parent's stuff, knowing that if it was hidden from me, it had to be really interesting or really bad. My dad had an old suitcase full of papers, girly magazines and other boring stuff but under those papers and naked ladies, I found something really neat. It was a small, black photo album filled with black and white candid shots of my mom coming out of the bathroom with her hair in curlers, my uncles playing poker, my dad and his friends looking...

Gram: "the big gay pride parade!"...
