During this season of festive holiday parties, my husband and I went to a Napoleon Dynamite movie night at our friends’ home.
We didn’t discuss any details in advance, other than what to drink and what time to be there. My husband and I decided to get into the spirit by dressing up. He did his best to look like Kip and I modeled myself after Trisha.
I told the Uber driver “we don’t normally look like this.” He looked at me, like “okay.” Jon (my husband) wasn’t fazed, he was as deadpan as could be!
Thankfully, when we got to their house, we could see our friends were up for fun. This sign was next to their front door.
Jon wore Charles Nelson Reilly style glasses. I combed his hair down and he sported an Izod shirt buttoned up to his neck, with suit pants and top siders. I thought he was hilarious!
I wore shoulder pads under a chunky sweater and cinched my waste with a wide belt. I accented my eyes with blue eyeliner and blue mascara. My hair was styled with “baby bangs” and a side pony tail.
Our friends dressed like Deb and Rex Kwon Do. They were dead ringers!
They surprised us with this meal! It looks as unappetizing as it did in the movie, but looks are deceiving!
A Platter of sliced hard cooked eggs
A dang case-uh-del-uh
Chapstick, so we wouldn’t have to borrow any from the school nurse
Tots…from Whole Foods
Dinner was truly delicious!
Then we saw the movie; quoted as many lines, out loud, as we could; and laughed until we cried.
Make the season fun!
