My Son, the Photo Bomber

In Humor on September 9, 2013 at 4:40 pm

My son is nuts … and I am so proud. He’s a great young man, mostly due to my husband’s role modeling, but I can see my influence, on the odd occasion.

Most people would say that he is quiet and introverted. And he is, in public. But, once in a while, he publicly does something so outrageous, just to amuse himself,  that outsiders are flabbergasted. I absolutely love this quality in him. And, I’m fairly sure he got it from me.

The other day, he went into Manhattan alone to attend a Fan Fest for a sports team. When he returned, he told me that it was a fun event. He added that he had especially enjoyed the trip itself.

“Why?” I asked.

“When I was at Grand Central, I photo bombed a bride and groom,” he said. He looked a little sheepish, but mostly gleeful.

“What did you do?” I asked, amazed.

“I was walking to my train, and in the center of the station were a bride and groom posing for photographs. I ran up behind them, jumped up in the air and waved my arms.”

“Were they furious?” I asked.

“I don’t know,” he laughed. “I got out of there, fast.”

And that’s, fortunately, where my son and I differ.  I would have gotten caught.

  1. How exaggerated is this post?!

    • Not at all exaggerated. Instead of waving his arms around behind the couple, he shot his arms straight up in a wide V-formation. That’s the only inaccuracy. He also made a crazy face.

  2. Let me say before anyone reads this that the story is quite exaggerated…but I approve it!
