  1. Is it weird that neither of us knows who Rebecca Black is? We must be old.

    One good thing about wearing the Mormon missionary costume to the church Halloween party is that you definitely are dressing modest enough.

  2. I could go for Pregnant Beyonce without much effort these days, as my bump is ever expanding….however, I think we’re going with The Great Pumpkin or the Stay Pufft Marshmellow Man’s wife.

  3. Wear a sign, “I am a stuck up American Princess. Please diss me!”

    Which is why wearing the Mormon Missionary outfit is better. You have all those awesome BoM Musical hits to sing, as well as “In Our Humble Way” from Saturday’s Warriors.

  4. You see plenty of kids dressed up like astronauts, ballerinas, firefighters, doctors… of course, there really are ordinary people with those jobs.

  5. I don’t care if you’re the biggest narcissistic snob in the galaxy, no one deserves to be bullied, even if the bullies like to pretend to themselves it is nothing more than “telling the truth,” so they can sleep at night.
