Hollow Teens

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.”

Hipster Elsa

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.”
