I am the worst child, cont.'d
gd: my brother informed me that I left a condom in the washer after my last load of laundry (still in the wrapper), and my parents were alarmed
so my mom asked him to bring it up
I mention that it's just that I have friends who hand them out at parties
and he says that that's fine but they're a little worried since I don't come home sometimes, and they hear girl's names
and now they see condoms, and they're a little worried
so on one hand: the ruse continues
but on the other hand: how to let them know not to worry, you're not going to have a reputation-destroying sighting of me all walk-of-shaming from a lady friend... because I'm not interested
because seriously my parents are like the opposite of sherlock holmes
give them three pieces of evidence and they will jump to the wrong conclusion

Take a boring photo with your 50mm f/1.8 prime wide open, with a small sliver of your subject in focus. Leave large portions of the subject outside of the focal plane, regardless of how important or interesting they are. Rotate the camera 30 degrees before shooting. Square-crop.
