The Dancer found her Halloween costume at the back of the closet (where I keep them to avoid Halloween fervor in July) and wanted, no scratch that- needed- to play dress up.
Since I've been so busy with writing deadlines I try to make up for it with added enthusiasm.
She experienced transports of delirious joy when I asked if she wanted to get out her make-up kit and make it official.
So this is how we play dress-up Tapper-style:
1. get out the Halloween costume you've been saving all year so you can break off a piece and stain it before Halloween ever arrives.
2. Pick the most impossibly garish eye shadow colors and slather them generously
3. text the following picture to your little sis who will then text back and ask:
Why do you have a full-fledged Cleopatra outfit?
I replied and told her I can't believe she doesn't. What does she wear on dress-like-a-historical-figure family night?
Desdemona is overdone and Boudicca is just tacky...
