There was a time when Michael Gomez thought he could laugh about it – but that time hasn’t come.

In what describes as a ‘momentary lapse of reason’, the now 57-year-old says agreeing to a happy snap with his newborn nephew back in 1985 is a decision that still haunts him to this day.

“I was going through a really heavy goth phase back then… obviously,” he said.

“At the time I thought I looked like the cat’s pyjamas. But by modern standards, I realise that cat’s don’t wear pyjamas.”

When asked by The Advocate why he keeps the photo around if he hates it so much, the creepy Capricorn said his kids find it funny.

“That’s the worst part, the kids won’t let me forget,” he said.

“Every morning, I walk past this black and white stranger holding a baby and I just die a bit inside,”

Mr Gomez then put the photo back on the telephone table and let out a heavy sigh.

More to come.
