Would you rather...? is a book I picked up a few years ago when I needed to use the remainder of a Borders gift card. It poses questions of some hilarious, horrifying, gnarly, etc. choices. Example:
Would you rather...
eat by putting food down your pants
Hilarious. Imagine the party tricks.
Sometimes I wish that there was something really bizarre about me. EX:
Would you rather...
have living eyebrows that crawl about your face
leave a trail of paprika where ever you go?
I want the former. I know first hand that people don't know how to act when others have physical features that aren't run of the mill...but this eyebrow thing seems sort of fun. Imagine sitting in a meeting and then there she goes! Your eyebrow creeps down the side of your face and hops on your upper lip to become...a mustache. The mustache part isn't as creepy looking as the no-eyebrow look.
See? Mustaches are normal(ish) in comparison.
Tonight Todd and I are heading out to get him a shirt and tie for Kelly's wedding. I'm going to wear my infinite dress to so I'm pretty much set but this eyebrow thing gets me thinking. I think I might switch designs throughout the night and pretend like there's nothing going on; I have infinite choices, right?Unfortunately...my infinite dress is black...and I think I might take a run to the fabric store so I can try to make a new one. Teal I thinks. That's a good summer color.
This is risky business, of course, since I've only made three things with my sewing machine.
1. I made a sweatshirt- but forgot that shirts are things (as are most articles of clothing) that are what the fashion design industry refers to as symmetrical. It's a fairly easy feat to accomplish when sewing since all you have to do is fold the thing in half and make one cut to produce the two sides. I didn't do it that way. I eye-balled it...and came up with a shoulder that's a great deal tighter than the other. Nothing sweet like this instead it was sort of a mess.
2. I made a snuggie/slanket for Danielle for graduation. Easy enough...except I still wasn't following the sewer's/carpenter's creed, "measure twice, cut once" at all.
3. I get weird neck/shoulder blade cramps so I took and old pillow case and stuffed it with THREE bags of polyester stuffing. Guess what that's like? Sleeping on a rock.
Most likely, I'll be wearing the black infinite dress. Either way, it might be fun to try out this traveling eyebrow dress business.
