I’m probably more than a little late to this game, but thanks to a post I read yesterday, I was introduced to tumblr photo blogs such as My Parents Were Awesome and Dads are the Original Hipsters. You can easily lose an afternoon reading these captions.
Immediately, photographs of my own awesome, original hipster parents came to mind.
Dad, with PBR, trucker hat, and cigarette, in 1977. The fact that this is my dad made it difficult to keep a straight face while living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in 1999.
Though it’s memories of the picture below that have always made watching Donna and Eric in “That ’70s Show” special. Yes, dad is wearing the same outfit. He probably still has it hanging in his closet. It’s a family trait.
