Whiskerino 2009


enjoys a cool breeze...

When my kids heard that today was going to be taco day they were very excited about having tacos for dinner and very, very excited about coming up with a photo for taco theme day. My youngest's was emphatic about her plan: "You get a taco--a *real taco*--and you stand there with a taco in your hands like you're gonna take a big bite out of it. But it's a *real* taco. That's gotta be a hit, because you'll have a *real* taco in your hand. Everyone will love that photo."

My eldest had a slightly more elaborate plan, which entailed purchasing a taco costume and taking a photo of myself wearing the costume and eating a taco. I would print the photo and frame it, then put the costume back on and take a photo of myself eating another taco while drawing a beard on the framed photo of myself wearing the taco costume while eating a taco.

I actually did put some slight effort into following Eldest's plan; however, the costume shop that I could make it to today is no longer there, guess they closed down quickly after Halloween. Eldest swallowed her disappointment and agreed to take the above photo of me while I finished making dinner tonight, though she kept muttering about how this was never gonna be good enough to win me a king beard. She's right, especially since then I fell asleep reading bedtime stories to her and her sister and just woke up now in time to upload my photo. I fear that I am becoming a member of the late night crew, though thus far I am still continuing to maintain my membership in the perfect attendance crew as well.

It would have been a great shot. There's no reason it can't happen on a non-taco-themed day. In fact, since it's been so elaborately detailed in the caption, it would be even funnier to see it randomly appear later in the Whiskerino.
