Experimettle suggested “something your parents did to embarrass you”, so here’s this:
It was picture day at school in the 2nd or 3rd grade and my mom felt I needed a haircut, something my dad usually did, but my mom and dad were splitsky at this point, so my mom decided she would do it herself. When my dad gave me haircuts he pretty much cut my hair down to near bald, or gave me a fade, my mom however decided she wanted to get more creative than that and gave some weird ass House Party style hairdo that I was NOT into, and on top of that put me in some huge gold turtle neck sweater deal that I was also not feeling very much. I hated how I looked, but my mom tried to convince me that I looked really handsome. I didn’t really believe her, but I didn’t press the issue, it wasn’t my way.
I can’t even remember if anybody made fun of me or not, I just remember feeling like I looked like an idiot and wanting to go home. Luckily the look did not last long, my mom didn’t want me to be bummed out any longer and called my dad and he came and cut it all off after school, I recall him having a good laugh about it though, haha.
I don’t know if I captured the look accurately, I’m working off memory, but somewhere a photo of it exists. I’m definitely not going to go looking for it though.
*edit: For people who may be too young to know what “House Party” is, it was a series of movies in the 90’s starring Kid & Play
