“Read All About It”


Description from Science Chick Runs Sibes: Finding the Newsprint Jasper reminded me of my favorite costume that my mom made for me. I went as a newspaper. She glued newspaper strips onto an old blouse and made a skirt out of pleated newspapers. My contribution was a folded "boat" hat.

    MaryS-ah, it could stand for that. LOL-I didn’t see that-but the nickname fits perfectly. Terry-I considered a hint of red in the pick but two things stopped me: (1) the color fought with the others and (2) the pick wouldn’t have been true to the costume. I guess at the 7th grade dance–_I_ was read all over.

    BTW Gayle, I hope you know I meant ‘geek’ in the kindest of ways…..I’m sort of in that category myself. ;-)
    Nerdy, science people unite! :-D

    Mary–Absolutely taken in the best way. When I substitute teach at the middle school level I always declare myself as a science geek with enthusiasm. It makes the kids laugh and usually I see a few “secret” smiles from my fellow “geeks.”
