S1E11: Friday Night
We are still exploring awkward adolescence through the eyes of Emma, with minor assistance from Manny. This is the episode where Emma goes on a date with Sean. Man these were hard times. I mean, I wasn’t exactly allowed to go on DATES at age 12 myself but, ya know, my parents would like drive me to the school dance where I had a “date” with an equally shy and awkward boy. My god. The little photo they take before the date – so relatable. I’m in pain. So these pictures are out of order in the post, but first we have Emma in a nice 3/4 sleeve top and khakis. We don’t really like, wear khakis recreationally anymore do we? I don’t think anyone just puts on khakis to go with their outfits these days. Correct me if I’m wrong. I remember wearing them and I remember them really not being the most comfortable or practical. Her hair is crimped AND curled under and the wears a plastic chunky watch. Oh yeah and she has a reddish zip up hoodie too. Then we have a couple of shots of her in her dorky little gym outfit. Ugh, we all deserve an award for surviving junior high. Then it’s time for the date! Looks like she fluffed up her hair a bit to get ready. And as you may remember, we get two outfits because a bird shat on her first one. First is the blue shirt with black zip up sweater. Then she switches to a red shirt and overalls. Like, I don’t know why she’s worried about her outfit, because she just looks like she’s ready for her first day of kindergarten, definitely not gonna be seducing anyone tonight. And lastly, she gazes at Sean in her tan velour zip up and STILL crimped hair.
