|I stole this from her|
Twitter account - shhhh!
Since she didn't go to the dance, thereby (according to her) saving us money on a dress, shoes, etc., she thought we should go out to eat dinner. She had spent the day in a semi-vegetative state, lying on the couch watching Netflix, in the same clothes she slept in the night before, so our restaurant choice could not include one in which she might run into classmates who were eating out before going to the dance. We decided to go to a very casual little Mexican restaurant in an adjacent town.
I, too, had spent much of the day in a semi-vegetative state, sitting in my big comfy chair with a kitten in my lap, in the same clothes I had slept in the night before. (Unlike my daughter) I took a quick shower before we went out and put on sweat pants and a gray Joplin Eagles hoodie (very, VERY casual restaurant). I walked into the kitchen, where my daughter, the college boy, and my husband were waiting, and looked at my daughter.
She was wearing a gray Joplin Eagles hoodie.
"MooooOOOOOOM! Go change!" said she to me.
"YOU go change," I replied. "I've had mine on longer."
"Do you ever LOOK at me? I wore this to bed last night and I'm STILL wearing it. I've had MINE on longer."
"All the more reason you should change," I told her. But, good sport that I am, I went ahead and went up to my room, changing into a maroon Missouri State Alumni sweatshirt.
I walked back down the stairs, where my husband and the college boy were waiting by the front door, ready to walk out the door. My daughter joined us.
Wearing a maroon Missouri State sweatshirt.
"YOU change!" we both said at the same time.
"NO ONE'S CHANGING! JUST WEAR THE DAMN SWEATSHIRTS!" said my husband.
And so we went out to eat for what was the first (and hopefully last) time we ever wore matchy matchy mother/daughter outfits.
Unless anyone thinks I can get her to wear this little ensemble....
