OMG THIS IS SO TOTALLY TRUE

I cannot even TELL you how many group chick photos I have, in which ALL of us are crouching. I have no idea why this happens, but it invariably does. And sometimes, I even comment immediately after the camera crouch when I’m chimping the photos to see how they turned out, “WHY ARE WE ALL CROUCHING?!?” And no one knows. It’s just what we do.

And since I know NO ONE in this photo, I’m kind of relieved, frankly, to learn that it’s not just groups of girls I’m with who do this. It appears to be a universal chick phenomenon.

Chick Camera Crouch. Do you do this?

    No I don’t probably because I am short. I try to stand as tall as I can and dammit, I’m still short!

  • So Cal Mom

    Yes, it happens with me and my group of friends, too!

    Some possible explanations:
    -in the olden days (80’s), we (those in a large group) had to ‘squeeze in’ to fit everyone into the picture?
    -everyone wants to make sure their head is not cut off by the photog?
    -maybe everyone needs to pee?! I do see a lot of beverages. 🙂

    Gosh, no, I don’t think I’ve ever done this. And how do you go about “chimping the photos”?

  • Gail

    I have never done this in my life. Perhaps because I am already short. My group is guilty of leaning towards each other, even when there is obviously room for all of us to fit into the frame. I’m not sure what that’s about, either.

    Maybe this is an 80’s/90’s holdover from when everyone’s hair was so big, we had to crouch in the front row, so as not to block out our big-haired friends in the back row?

    Another thing I’ve noticed about women is that we will sorta hunch over when forced to unexpectedly break into a jog/slow run for whatever reason (crossing the street, trying to get out of someone’s way, whatever). I call it the ‘Hunch-n-Run’. Now that you know about it, you will see it everywhere…enjoy.

  • WakeUp

    Nope. I don’t… I stand up straight, and actually look ridiculously stuff.

  • Hatchetwoman

    I’d never noticed this. Now I have to go through all my old photo albums and see if my friends and I did it and just never paid attention.

  • Mamabear

    I totally do this. I keep trying to stop myself. I have no reason for it.

  • Mockarena

    RoP – “chimping” is a Daisy term (or a Mr. Daisy term – I forget which). It’s that thing you do where you can’t wait to see your pictures before downloading them, so you gather like monkeys around your camera to peek at them on the tiny camera screen. 🙂

  • Bone

    Oh hell no.

  • Tina B

    Nope, can’t say that I’ve ever done this. They all look like they have to go to the bathroom NOW!

  • Reminiscent_of_Purple

    I’ve been initiated. Photographic proof is imminent from Saturday. 🙂
