Josh called home yesterday and suggested we have a Republican Debate Party after he got home from work, complete with finger foods, and Presidential attire.
And that's just what we did...
I bought that dress specifically for a cocktail party at the Click Away event last year, but opted for pajamas in my hotel room instead, so this was the first time I took it out for a spin. (Won't be teaching at Click Away this year - just really wanted to focus solely on the year-long workshop I'm in the process of teaching.)
And apparently, that's my 'Presidential face.'
Josh Downs put gel and a part in his hair (two things he never does).
Miss Yans put her favorite Christmas dress on herself, and an old shirt (a hand-me-down from Courtney Lee) on her pup.
Courtney Lee wore an old birthday dress, and perfected her Presidential Clap.
And Cole let me douse him with hair spray to keep that deep part in place.
And then we prepared for the debate (we don't have cable, so Josh had to stream FOX from his computer to the television).
The streaming kept freezing up, which gave us lots of hysterical, Republican facial expressions to make fun of.
And every time the bell would go off (to indicate when the speaker's time was up), us girl's would all say, "Come in!" because it sounded just like a doorbell.
I actually had no clue who most of the debtors were (other than Trump and Huckabee), but quickly decided who I like (Huckabee and Carson because they act like real men and not politicians), and who I don't (Paul, because of the smirk on his face anytime anyone said something he didn't like).
Everyone was amused by The Donald though (if nothing else, he puts on a fun show).
Even so, it was a total success of an evening (no fighting, lots of laughing, lots of political questions, etc.).
And when I thanked Josh for coming up with such a good idea, he responded by saying, "I was just trying to figure out a way that I could get away with watching the debates tonight."
We're an easy group to trick, just offer up some food and fun attire, and we're game for just about anything.
