I Did Not Know That

Did you know that you are not allowed to take pictures in the Halloween store? We didn't and so we got in trouble. We, as the adults (Lisa and I). I was so bummed out because I love going in the Halloween store and trying on every mask I can. I am so not a germ o phobe that the grossness of it doesn't even occur to me (until now that is). I like to wait for whoever I am with, my kids or friends until they are not paying attention to me and then surprise them with something like this......

Lisa was easy to do it to, she was occupied with her phone and totally distracted so everytime she looked up Saige and I would surprise her with a new disguise. Saige is good at it too.....

I was so loving that she chose the Barack mask with her "Can't touch this" t-shirt on. Gave me a giggle.
Until the girl with the devil horns came over and burst our bubble. "No pictures!!!" she yelled at us. I had on a big troll mask that went halfway down my body at the time. So of course I start laughing. Saige just turned around and walked away. Lisa was trying to be the adult and quickly apologized but asked her why? The devil girl said because if we put the pictures up on the internet no one would know if we bought them or not. Hmmmm? I'm sorry, I don't follow. I don't understand that. I didn't say anything though, because I was dressed somewhat like a hobbit and I didn't want to make anymore trouble. So we dumped our masks and went to look for the boys (all four of them). The boys were supposed to be collecting things they need for their costumes. They weren't. They too were being reprimanded by the (poor) devil girl. We hurried over to see what was going on, they were trying on the boobs. Which, sadly, gave us a small chuckle, but that girl didn't think it was funny. Not even a little bit.

We are the most fun co-parenters though- I'm sorry devil girl, it was all for a laugh, you know a big fat pee your pants laugh!! Post the pics away, let's see if we get caught by the internet police.

That picture is brilliant (Lisa, Obama mask, 'Can't Touch This' shirt). But, why can't you take pictures in the Halloween store? Are they afraid of costume espionage or something? WTF

I have to say...I've had the shittiest two days that I've had in a really long time, but this post gave me a really huge laugh!!! Thanks! All too funny. What does she mean, they won't know if you bought them? Makes no sense??? And of course the boys were trying on the boobs...I can see my Chase doing that...shit I probably would have done that! Beware of the Halloween Police -heather

OH. MY. HEAD.

I would've been trying on the boobs, too...while wearing a mask that was half Obama, half McCain. 'Cause they're both boobs. Seriously.

And I LOVE that you're all, "Woooooo--screw you Mean Halloween Store Wench--I'm posting the pics on my blog. And now no one will know if I bought them or not. OH THE HORROR!"

I dig you. In a very big way.

H.S.Senior Year Halloween Party Costume: Two riding hardhats + one tight sweatshirt + little skirt = most popular costume.

See? Devil girls was right! We have no idea if you bought the costumes and the pix are on the Internet. She had a very good point. I just can't quite figure out why this would matter??????
