Am I dressing up? Am I shite. If I had my way, I'd spend WBD in bed reading books.
I am going in my usual clothes for a whole host of reasons.
1. I am there for the poor little souls who have parents who cannot be arsed to sort out a costume/who have no money to come up with a costume. Frankly, half the kids come in football strips or fancy dress outfits from Asda.
They are supposed to come as their favourite character from a book. Most of these children don't have books at home.
So for those children in uniform today - I am there so they do not feel isolated and any worse than they will do already.
2. *I* truly cannot be arsed nor do I have spare funds or time to search for a full on prostitute outfit. ( I am currently reading my Mother in Law's collection of Martina Cole books. Prostitution and East End Mafiaesque crime feature heavily. )
3. I have not had crisps for three days. Three whole days. Healthy Eating is RUBBISH.
Making me wear something uncomfortable and unfamiliar all day PLUS the crisps cold turkey withdrawal DTs could potentially end up with serious crime.
4. There are probably lots of reasons that I have forgotten about.
I have dressed up in the past for Fancy Dress parties and somewhere in my blog is a photo of little old me dressed up as a Hot Dog - nothing to do with Martina Cole - but a full on mechanically recovered meat snack in a bun WITH mustard. Actually it was great. Hot Dog Costumes hide a multitude of sins.
What are you dressing you/your children up as today? Fancy Dress Faux Pas? I'd love to hear from you...
