You might remember my post last spring about Spirit week. Remember when I sent my kid to school wearing this?
Only to discover later in the day that I'd actually sent her to school wearing a skirt made of THESE?
Well, I thought it only right that I confess what happened today.
Angela got off the bus after school, came marching up the driveway, walked in the house and plopped her packpack and coat on the bench in the entryway. She said hello to Dean and Tyler (ignoring me, as usual.) then looked at me. "Wwwwwhere's my gun?"
"Oh, I know!" she said, finger in the air like she just had a brilliant idea. She went into her coat...the one she had just taken off....reached into the pocket and pulled out a toy gun identical to this (except hers had an orange tip.)
It is no secret that Angela's favorite game is "jail", and that it is no fun to play "jail" without a gun in hand. Interestingly, yesterday Dean and I told her "No more jail!" because she's very obessive about it and driving everyone nuts.
I asked her why she brought the gun to school and she replied with an incredulous look, "Gah! To arrest C....Duh!"
