Our first Halloween together, Mr. Peeved and I dressed up as Elvis and a showgirl.
The costumes were a hit and Elvis lives on to this day in the form of an employee who has “borrowed” it and keeps finding occasions in which he needs to wear it in to work. I digress. Later that same year, it came time for Mr. Peeved’s place of employment’s annual employee appreciation party. Each year, these parties have a theme and everyone goes all out. Apparently, that particular year, our Halloween costumes inspired a Casino Night theme. Everyone kept telling us we had to wear our costumes again. And, we did.
(driving in the car in comfortable silence… until…)
Mr. Peeved: No way.
Peeved: You don’t even know what I’m laughing about.
Mr. Peeved: Of course I do. No way.
Peeved: Okay. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Please?
Mr. Peeved: No. Forget it.
Peeved: Okay, but it would have been damn funny.
(later that week, shopping in the maternity section of Target for an XL black tank top)
Mother of a Toddler: Honey, stay over here by mommy, sweetie.
(putting mascara and lipstick on Mr. Peeved at the hotel room)
(putting a long blonde wig on Mr. Peeved at the hotel room)
(putting bobby pins with disco beads and feathers glued on them onto Mr. Peeved mandals at the hotel room)
(putting feather butt boa skirt on Mr. Peeved at the hotel room)
(walking out into the hotel corridor dressed as Elvis and holding Mr. Peeved’s hand)
Male half of little old Jewish couple walking towards us: (turning to wife) Well, you don’t see that every day!
Little old Jewish wife: Hmmpf.
(walking through the lobby of the hotel with Mr. Peeved sashaying around his feather frocked butt)
One of the two big meatheads at the check-in counter: (while simultaneously smacking his counterpart on the shoulder to get his attention) Ah, Shiiiii…..
Mr. Peeved: Hi, Sugar!
The point of this story, you ask? Well, today I encountered more than a few things that were borderline bizarre. However, like the old Jewish couple and the meatheads, I didn’t have a camera handy to snap a shot. So, in no particular order, here are the weirdo things I saw on my way home today:
- A bischon frise wearing sunglasses. Not shades that a vet would give you if you had eye issues, but full-on, designer-looking sunglasses. His owner had a matching pair.
- A Christmas tree lot.
- A man brushing his teeth while driving his car.
- A sign at the adult “toy” store advertising a “BLOW-OUT” sale on videos.
- A man playing air drums… while riding a bike… without headphones in.
