Bershon

Recently, my sister introduced me to the term bershon, which is that very special disgusted face adolescents make when they are annoyed by their family.


To the left, we have my wonderful son, Donovan. He is so bershon because he just woke up and we're making him hold his cousin Dex and pose for this picture.


Next, we have me at his age. I was absolutely bershon because my mother dared to take my picture in public. I am probably thinking something like, pictures are so bourgeois. (I was reading Marx at the time and bourgeois was my favorite epithet.)


I'm pretty sure I win the bershon contest. Oh, my poor mother.

(For some reason, I'm posting alot of family pictures today.)

I'd never heard of this "bershon" business...but it makes sense.

100% of photos taken of me have that bershon look--even now. Mostly because I don't give a rip about much of muchness. Sort of got that Jean Paul Sartre "Nausea" thing going on...

I think my face got a little stuck that way. . .

All you need to complete the picture is a 44 Magnum, and a caption of "make my day".

I must have been good today, the word verification is so easy I can do it all by myself.

I think that it also had something to do with having to go watch your little sister cheerlead, which is what you were doing in this picture.

Nigel, Hahaha! Nice image.

Popeye, My mom always told me if I wasn't careful my face would get stuck like that.

Pelmo, I'm so proud!

Womama, Cheerleading is petty bourgeois.
