can't believe that summer is almost over already! This means that it's time for that yearly ritual of buying school supplies. As a kid, I remember having so much fun getting brand new stuff for a new year full of all kinds of possibilities. Now, I know that's a load! Booooring!! I guess it's because I'm not shopping for myself. If it's not for me, then who cares really?
Besides, school supplies cost money. I can't be going around buying pencils and shit when there are manicures and facials to be had. It takes a lot of money and time to look as good as I do. As you can tell by my picture, my skin is flawless, almost cartoon-like.
I figured out a solution to this little quandary of mine. Shoplifting!
Luckily those baggy bubble tops and dresses are in style right now. So, my daughter and I got our stylish bubble tops on and we looked fab! I made my son wear a bubble dress too, even though he wasn't really down with that idea. But, he's just five years old and he won't remember this when he grows up anyway. Besides, I don't think he has any gender issues, so he'll be okay in the long run. Does he think school supplies just grow on trees?
Between the three of us, we should have been able to get enough stuff to last until college, or beauty school, or wherever.
We got into our local Wal-Mart and began our task at hand. My kids are rookies at this, so they might blow it for me. Don't ask me how I know this...
I don't feel like talking about it.
BUT, I did learn a valuable lesson from this:
NEVER make your son wear a dress.
