Yesterday afternoon, I got a call from my son and this is how the conversation went:
Logan: "Mom, I need you to get me green face paint"
Me: "Ok, for when."
Me: "Are you kidding? Why?"
Logan: "Jets Spirit Day at school."
There was more to the conversation but those of you with kids, know what came next. So, after work, I ran to Toys 'R Us to get some green face paint where I got sent to all corners of the store by unknowledgeable employees only to discover that they don't sell face paint in the first place. I then went next door to a Party City where again, I got sent to a number of wrong aisles. Finally, I found that elusive tube of green paint. I also bought a tube of white just in case.
This morning, we got up a little extra early to allow for "makeup" application. We'd searched the net last night for examples of Jets fans' painted faces to no avail so we opted for a simple bi-color design. I have a green middle finger now but my son went to school very happy with the results. Here is a pic of how my kid looked. Notice the green sweatshirt too. Go Jets!
