A friend sent me this:
I laughed. But I swear I’m going to be a nervous wreck up to and including next Tuesday. Thank God for World Fantasy Con.
At least I have last-minute packing and such to keep me busy. Also a very special craft project about which I can give no specifics, except to say, I’m the least crafty person in the world and so it’s not going well.
When K was little and in dance and gymnastics, we moms had to make the girls’ costumes for the annual performance. Personally, I think the dangers of hot glue guns are underrated. And K’s costume was sort of kind of right. After that, K went on to other activities but I heard through the grapevine that the dance instructor gave in and had parents buy the costumes the next year.
I like to think it was my off-centered, badly glued, drooping tulle blow for the rights of noncrafty mothers (and their children!) everywhere to not have to suffer the indignities of homemade costumes.
Of course, that doesn’t help with my current project. Maybe if I leave it out on the kitchen table the elves will finish it.
