Josephine wished she had used a condom
This is the very first card I made. I bought the photograph from a man at the Fremont Sunday Market who purchases old photos in bulk from estate sales. I was really excited when I started to read the inscriptions on the back-sides of the photos and postcards I had purchased when I realized most of the photos were (or belonged to) the same woman at different stages of her life. Her last name had changed on many of the more recent photos and cards, and I knew she must have gotten married at that point!
If the camera steals your soul when it takes your picture, my apartment is getting pretty crowded with old souls!
Outside: "Josephine wished she had used a condom."
Inside: "I'm glad your parents didn't. Happy Birthday"
