I absolutely loved Katie's post sharing the extra details behind Instagram photos! Here are the truths and realities behind a few of my Instagram photos.
What I was really thinking: I just dumped about 4 CUPS of oil into this food processor. I am never eating pesto sauce again. Ever.
What I was really thinking: I look like a cheesy tourist! This is not the most professional-looking picture of myself to be posting on social media. Should I even be sharing it?
Reality: This photo was taken on Super Bowl Sunday, when Chicago got hit with a MASSIVE blizzard. That afternoon, I was really unhappy that I had to run to the office to take care of an errand. It was total misery slogging through the blinding snow and unplowed streets/sidewalks. I snapped this photo while shuffling home.
Reality: I was completely exhausted from being on my feet all day long and trying unsuccessfully to corral a classroom full of energetic 7-year olds. I will never again take for granted that I have a desk job where I get to sit on my butt all day.
Reality: I also had an obscene amount of powdered sugar on my jeans. No amount of dusting seemed to get rid of it, either. I was ready to get stopped by the police for suspicion of being in possession of controlled substances.
Reality: Notice the blue covering on the table? This was to ensure that random visitors like me didn't spill anything or cause any damage to the chambers, haha.
Your turn! What photos have you shared on social media where there was more to the story than the caption?
