And let the fun begin…
Hubster felt sorry for me so he went into the (Bigger) cities with his friend and stopped at Party City. He called and said “UHHHH … Did you know that all the adult women’s costumes are all uhhhh… ” “Slutty?” I asked and could hear his loud swallow on the other end of the phone. “Yap, ‘fraid so.” I closed my eyes and said something I NEVER thought would come out of my mouth. “OK, then surprise me.” Famous last words. Not quite what I planned on, especially in the Dakotas, but I am going as a MOD COP! Yap, Pink 😦 gray black and white Halter top with matching bell bottoms. A gray cape, badge, handcuffs (real ones!) and a modish cap with high heal boots. Will post pix on Sat. 🙂
I know people who volunteer to work without pay so they can get food stamps to eat. They do X amount of work a month for about 150 in food. The thing is where they live, no one will hire them nor will their supervisors help if problems crop up. One guy didn’t realize he turned in the wrong hours until he was notified that his stamps were cut. He went to his supervisor to straighten it out and was told to call a gal who headed the program in his town. He called her once a week and she never called back. And now (2 weeks later of calling) she finally put a note on her answering machine “Will be unavailable until Oct. 27th..” This is NOT Social Service it is Lack of giving a DMN about her clients! If this is caring I would hate to see what not caring is!
Like a tired old joke, people seem to stereo type witches and women in general. “if you are a witch you are always wearing black and have on heavy eye makeup” “If you are a witch you a teenager or someone looking for attention.” And yet when those people pass a witch who doesn’t wear black or “Goth” makeup, or is even a teacher, doctor, or grandparent they don’t see that these people could be witches. Witches wear regular clothes, hold down regular jobs, have regular families. We don’t necessarily wear black robes or pointed hats. We love colors, pantsuits, dresses, shorts or any other type of clothes we feel good in. I certainly don’t wear makeup, unless I am A. going out and want to dress up or B. am dressing for Halloween or a play. And it certainly isn’t all black. PLUS I am over 21 and have owned many of my own small businesses. The last being a tea and baking business. So next time you pass someone in black, don’t laugh point and say “witch” Could be someone who decided they like back and it has nothing to do with being a witch.
