Teen Girl in Blazer: “Everyone thinks my costume is Hillary Clinton.”
Random Mom: “I thought you were from the movie Mean Girls.”
Blazer: “No, I’m from the movie Heathers.”
Rando: “What’s the difference between Heathers and Mean Girls?”
Me: “About 20 years.”
My Oldest, age 13: “I hate even thinking about snow until after Halloween because then we’re all about Christmas, which is all about snow and presents and cookies. And… you know, love and good will and stuff.”
I helped My Oldest, age 13, design her Hipster Elsa costume.
She’s got a blonde wig, stocking cap, over-sized cardigan sweater and an ironic t-shirt. She’s looking for a disposable cup from an obscure coffee shop, and practicing ironic lines if she gets any compliments.
I suggested “I was cold before it was cool” and “Being cool never bothered me anyway.”
