The project was called "dynamic duo" - every kid had a partner, like Batman & Robin or Beauty and the Beast. The pea's pair (we'll call her Leanne) was dressed as an angel.
I was more than a little hesitant about the Sweet Pea's costume choice. It wasn't so much that I thought she'd be smote or anything for wearing it (although you just never know). I was more concerned about her teachers and classmates suddenly realizing that maybe she isn't always as sweet as I make her out to be.
It turns out I didn't have to worry. No one was going to be fooled by a mere costume anyway.
Sweet Pea's teacher when he sees her in costume:
"Wow! You're really in your element here!"
At least he ended up asking her if she would be HIS partner, since it turns out his costume was none too sweet either.
And a conversation between the Pea and one of the boys:
Boy from her School - So who's your partner?
Evil Pea - Leanne. She's an angel.
Boy from School - Shouldn't you guys have swapped?
Same Boy - You know...so you could try playing out of character?
That's about the news from here - same ole' same ole'. We're mostly just trying to keep the level of resident evil at a bare minimum.
