Oh wait....Fall Festival party. Right?
Just got a call from the party planner for George's 2nd grade class. She obviously doesn't know how much I love to bake and create fancy treats - cause she said she's got the food all covered and I'm bringing paper plates and napkins. Hmmmph. Ok, so what is the food you ask?
Are you ready for this awesomeness?
Mini bagels....and cream cheese!!!
Soooo, it's a Halloween party. There's costumes. And they get mini bagels and cream cheese? ::said very slowly for effect:: So boring. The first problem is that the school insists on having the party at 8:30 in the morning. For several reasons. Costumes all day would be disruptive. It would also expose those children (whose parents think Halloween is evil) to the halloween stuff. And by having it first thing in the morning, those parents can keep their children home until 9:30, thereby saving them from the evilness of the Halloween party.
I probably sound like such a brat, but I just hate this stuff. The few are SO loud about their annoyances that the many have to bend and accomodate. Stay tuned when the Christmas, I mean Holiday stuff pops up.
Would it be totally rude if I showed up with fancy cupcakes anyway? The kids wouldn't even want a stupid mini bagel with cream cheese. Maybe I'll show up with them at 3:20 - 10 minutes before the end of the day and have them individually wrapped so the kids can take them home. That wouldn't be rude, would it?
