I didn't say it. I wanted to.
When the lady came in, wanting to be "Cher" for Halloween, and measured in at 42/36/47 and about 5'2", I didn't say, "Wouldn't you rather be Mama Cass?"
But when the guy came in and asked me if the many yards of glitter net I was working on were part of a costume I was making for somebody, and I told him it was for a high school show, and he asked me, "Do the schools PAY for that sort of thing?" I had to answer, "No...we do it out of the goodness of our hearts." I did laugh and say, "Kidding! Yes, they do pay, but it doesn't come out of your tax dollars!"
Dearly Beloved, they reproduce! Home school! Vote! And beat us to the best parking places!
