“My boyfriend wants me to have blonde highlights in my hair and I told him that I’d do it, but he’d have to pay for it. When he got the $200 bill every other month, he was a bit surprised that it cost that much.”
“Yeah. I could think of other ways to spend $200 on you.”
“He spends too much money on me. I tell him not to, but he does. He’s 35.”
“I know. I’m only 21. My mom says that he probably thought he was getting some sweet submissive young girl, but that’s not the case at all. I’m so not that.”
“Like the other day, he got home and he was complaining about something and I told him to shut up. The house was clean and dinner was ready. What does he have to complain about?”
“Yeah. Sounds perfect. I’m 35 and 21 sounds pretty good…” [Rest of this thread is removed cause I got in enough trouble when it actually happened.] “…So, for Sal’s party – would you be interested in dressing up as Cinderella? It is his favorite princess.”
“Really? I’d so do that!”
There was some doubt as to whether we were each taking each other seriously, but at the end of class, we discussed the timing of the costume hand off and double checked the dates. So it was pretty straightforward booking Cinderella for the party. Realizing that she liked living out dreams of 35 year old men was the key. But that’s making it all about me, when it really isn’t. Realizing that she considered herself Sal’s soccer girlfriend was what made the deal.
Spiderman was pretty easy too. Jason and I were talking when he was changing – where Jason was realizing he didn’t even put up a fight.
“For Sal’s birthday, will you dress up as a superhero? Spiderman or maybe Wolverine?”
Logistic wise Spiderman ended up being the better choice. And that was that.
Next year, Shawn’s gonna be the Human Torch. It was something various people requested. Dan is penciled in for Mr. Fantastic. I thought cause he was all stretchy and lanky. But Dan sees it more because he’s the genius inventor geek. With two of the Fantastic Four, scheduled already, now I’m motivated to get the Invisible Girl (should be easy…and fun!) and the Thing (less easy…less fun).
Any Thing volunteers? Or suggestions?
