Clad in a polyester Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costume -- for the third straight day -- and flanked by his younger brother, who was dressed as Darth Vader in sneakers, Cooper approached a high-school-aged cheerleader and said, "I like your costume."
Are. You. Kidding. Me!?!??!!?
Quite literally I laughed, only on the inside, so hard I just about peed in my pants.
Needless to say the cheerleader was nonplussed by this description and sweetly -- but ever so fakely -- corrected him with, "This isn't a costume, it's my uniform."
And dear, frank Mason said, "Oh yeah, right."
Oh. My. Gosh. Dying, I was dying.
So then, costume versus uniform. You decide.
PS -- Her mother, who was clearly over her daughter's cherry tattoos (on her cheeks and shoes), was equally amused.
OH AND A VERY BIG
Happy Birthday to Uncle Trent -- the original TMNT.
