Last night Andy and I went to a Masquerade Gala. It was a lot of fun. We had a hard time deciding what to wear. We thought about going as some famous couple but couldn't come up with one. We thought about going as an E-male with attachments! Cute, but didn't quite feel right. And then Katelyn came up with an awesome idea. Go as "Beauty and The Geek"! That was the ticket! Maybe we would even win the $100 prize! So I got the 'ole formal out of the attic, bought some false eyelashes and decided to deck out for the evening. Katelyn, bless her heart, came over and did my hair. She did a fabulous job. It was all done up with curls, feathers and roses! I even put on a beauty mark!
Then the Geek. Oh, my he really was geeky! Andy wore seersucker pants, with a Ward Cleaver sweater. He had a mismatched shirt with a pocket protector full of pens. His pockets were turned inside out, his shirt was buttoned crooked and he had geeky glasses with tape on them. Then came the icing on the cake---he wore buck teeth.
We were quite a pair. We went and ate at Amazing Joe's and they were so impressed, they comped our meal! People tried not to stare, it was a little hard though when they saw Andy's hair fixed like Alfafa's of the Raskels! Some said to him, I hope that is a costume! Others, just couldn't stand to look at all!
Okay, so we didn't win the $100 dollar prize. But we had fun, I felt like a movie star and Andy, well, he was just flat out geeky, all the way around.
Take a look and see what you think!
