Tuesday Reverie: Why Edward Can’t Use my Camera

Posted on
Feb 21, 2012

I like to describe my brother as a triple threat: he’s an actor. And an asshole. And he’s my brother.

That counts as three things, right?

Oh, and occasionally he takes photos of things. Which you’d think would make him a quadruple threat. But really, most of his pictures just reinforce the fact that he’s kind of an asshole.

And with that preamble, I give you this week’s Tuesday Reverie:

 

Yes, he took the above picture. Yes, I was annoyed. And yes, I may have laughed a little, too.

See? Triple threat.

  • Yes, but at least he left his pants on !

      My thoughts exactly. I misplaced my camera at a Halloween party once. I had some surprises when I got those pictures (film) developed — suprised not only by what was photographed, but what people did during my party!

    Brothers…sigh…I have four of them so I feel your pain.
    My husband flips off the camera everytime he poses for a picture for anyone. A crotch shot pales in comparison.

  • Nik

    My husband takes that exact same shot whenever I hand him the camera. Our 7 week RTW trip contains at least 12 crotch shots of all different pants. Its annoying because I dragged the whole lot onto a digital frame so now when walking through my lounge room I’ll glimpse the occasional upside down fly.

  • Ah you know you love him really. Brothers, I have two. Think they’re SO funny 🙂

  • Haha. When I saw this title, I thought you were referring to Edward of Twilight. And I was racking my brain trying to think of things Edward can’t do, until I realized THERE AREN’T ANY. So glad you cleared that up.

  • I first met Chad around the time I had brain surgery. He'd just gone through the same experience with a very different diagnosis. He went on to have SIX more brain surgeries and was part of a litany of clinical trials for his brain cancer. Through it all he was funny and brash and so painfully honest about his experience. He was also instrumental in helping me finish my book - I sent Chad a chapter every month while working on my manuscript. He joked that I'd enlisted a dying man to help me meet my deadline. I hadn't emailed him in months, and just found out today that he passed away right before Christmas. It was a long time coming, but I am still blindsided by the loss.

Goodbye you wonderful, brilliant, exuberant asshole. I knew you'd break my heart.
