Thousand Word Thursday

[orginally posted one year ago]

This is how I spent my morning; dressed in full costume for "Ridiculous Day!" which is, of course, part of Spirit Week at the middle school. (For what it's worth, this boys' mom gave permission for me to post his photo on my blog, even though she's never been here.) This lad has a great sense of humor. Although he is very much like Archie Bunker, you gotta love him!)

Days like today are what "fill me up." I received so much positive attention for this get-up, it was a blast. The kids vacillated between terror and amusement; I wish I had photos of their faces as they came into the building to see me galloping around the foyer in my "horse." Priceless. Adults, too, were quite entertained. I could tell many people wished they had the nerve, and others simply shook their heads. Although Kendall pretended to be mortified (and I went along with the act), I could tell she loved the attention, too. Combined with Pajama Day (another big favorite of mine) and Heavenly Hats Day (I love not having to do my hair!), Ridiculous Day has become my new favorite! Can't wait til next year; I'll definitely have to wear the mask again (unless, of course, the principal got some phone calls today regarding the sadistic teacher who terrified kids to the point of school phobia!)

Now, there is no way I can end this post without a comment about my mother. (I know you, my Sisters, are itching to draw the parallels!) I will not own "morphing" into Mom, but I will admit that in recent years, I have grown to love dressing up like a freak and acting silly. I guess that's a trait I don't mind claiming :0)
