I forgot to mention: Last night's "You've got to be kidding me" costume award went to a 13-year-old girl who came into the store dressed in what appeared to be multi-colored rags and scarves. She had her hair poofed out and tied in pig tails, and garish makeup on.
"What are you supposed to be?" I asked.
"I'm an '80s girl," she said.
My jaw just about hit the floor. Were the 80s really so long ago that nobody can remember what people actually looked like? I grew up in the '80s, and I never saw anyone dressed the way she was. Not even in those cheesy early MTV vidoes.
Honey, just because you found all that stuff in mommy's closet doesn't mean they're from the '80s.
