Cross-Country Connections: Schadenfreude


Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Schadenfreude.

From me in Minneapolis, MN:

CCC Schadenfreude Brianne

My friend takes her second stumble during our snowy walk last winter. Admitting her defeat, she refused to get up – even with the threat of having her photo taken!

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:

CCC Schadenfreude ErinFrom the Key West Cemetery – I can only assume the creepiness of this headstone was on purpose and whoever came up with it enjoys how people shiver upon seeing it. 

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois:

CCC Schadenfreude MomTruly the most unfortunate photo ever taken of a cat.  I dare you not to laugh.  (no cats were harmed in the taking of this picture, Jasper was yawning).

    What the heck is The Thing In The Headstone supposed to be? (Never mind, the name I gave it is horrifyingly Lovecraftian enough.)

    Some kind of slumping black iron baby? A tarbaby? It’s just plain weird.

    Your friend looks positively hilarious. Also, love the cat. It’s a great photo!
