I Only Take The Cute Drugs

, , , , | Related | October 26, 2017

(It’s October, nearing Halloween. My mother’s workplace decides to host a Halloween party, and everyone is encouraged to dress up in costumes. After looking through several costume ideas, my mother decides to go as a “Pixie Dust addict,” aka a fairy with a drug problem. I work in theater, and have done costume design and stage makeup in the past, so I’m selected to help my mom get the look she wants.)

Me: *after spending over an hour on makeup* “There; you’re all done. What do you think?”

Mom: *looking into mirror* “Ugh, why did you make me look so awful?! I look strung out!”

Me: “Isn’t that exactly what you wanted? You’re supposed to look like a drug addict.”

Mom: “But I wanted to be a cute one!”
