Aunt Ellen goes to jail (almost!)...


My aunt live 5 minutes away from my sister. (The one that has four children ranging in ages from 17 down to 5.) Anyway, she needed a photo taken for an I.D. card. She went to my sister's house and my sister took her picture with her digital camera. She then gave my aunt her CF Card. My aunt proceeded to go to CVS to get the photo printed. Since my aunt is not technologically savvy she asked an employee to assist her with printing the photo.

He inserted the CF Card into his computer and called up the images. (THIS IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING...)

Up pops about 25 pictures of my 5 year old nephew's bare butt, private parts and face! (There were some pictures of the dog's butt thrown in to add some variety to the mix!) Before you call the cops, it was pretty obvious that he had taken these photos of himself! My aunt was flabbergasted and I think the CVS employee could tell by the look on her face that she was as shocked as he was.

Needless to say my sister had a little talk with my nephew. Apparently he was "festering", as we call it, while mom was busy with his siblings and decided to have a private little photo session. Thankfully Aunt Ellen was not brought up on charges and the offending photos have been deleted from the family camera.

Whew. That could have gotten ugly.

Just another day in the life of my sister who if she had enough time should start her own blog!

*festering (verb)-when a child (usually the youngest) is left to his or her own devices while mom and dad are otherwise occupied. Festering activities may include cutting ones own hair, spilling nail polish on the couch or photographing ones private parts with the family camera.

OMG!! Thank goodness everything turned out ok. That situation had the makings of DISASTER written all over it.

When I was in high school a bunch of girls who were on some sort of school related overnight trip got a bit frisky and took silly pics of each other in their bras and pajama bottoms. When the film was developed every girl got her pics and the negatives. Everything was fine until one girl had a party, a drunken boy found the pics and posted them on the internet. Well, somehow the cops found out and they were trying VERY HARD to get the girls to file charges against the girl who owned the camera used to snap the pics. CRAZY. Especially because it was totally for fun and totally ok with everyone involved.

Ok...so I left ya a really looooong comment =)

Oh. My. Gah!

My son did the SAME THING! It's a good thing I don't take my CF cards in to be printed. I was shocked when I saw it on my computer.

It is pretty funny though. Glad everything worked out okay!

OMG! Too funny. I am glad we can print our own pics. now. I used to hate in high school to drop my film off b/c I never knew who was going to look at it/make copies!!

It's kind of funny though, since everything worked out, but I would have been mortified!
