Although I’ve been a sporadic Writer’s Workshopper again, this week one prompt fit my life a bit too perfectly (almost as if Mama Kat has been observing our household, which kind of freaks me out a bit.) You see, a bitter war has been raging here in the Jenners household, and one of this week’s prompts provided the perfect way to resolve tensions and bring peace back to our home. So, without further ado, here is my take on Prompt 1:
Share a disagreement you’re having with someone and let your readers be the judge!
The issue: What costume should our puppy Romeo wear for Halloween?
You’d think that this wouldn’t be an issue fraught with tension, but it is. At first, we were all agreed on a little bumblebee costume, but I couldn’t find one that fit. So I bought an adorable little ladybug costume, thinking that this would be a pretty even exchange. Well, well, well … Mr. Jenners went ballistic and said something like “No way is he wearing a ladybug costume. He is a boy dog, and I won’t have him wear a girly costume.”
First of all, the fact that we are dressing up our tiny dog for Halloween already crosses some kind of “masculine” line, don’t you think?
Second, Mr. Jenners went out and bought his own costume for Romeo—a clown costume. And nothing screams “testosterone” and “boy” than a brightly colored clown costume with pom poms, right?
I personally find the clown costume to be garish and unbefitting Romeo’s cuteness. I think he looks MUCH better as a ladybug. But Mr. Jenners is dead set against the ladybug costume. Unable to resolve our dispute via BB (who hates having to choose in the best of circumstances and certainly not “Mommy’s choice” versus “Daddy’s choice”), we decided to bring the issue to this blog for a vote. So please take a moment to vote in the poll below and settle this issue once and for all. And, of course, to help you decide, here is Romeo modeling both outfits.
So vote now!! Romeo’s Halloween costume depends on YOU!
