Sweatsuit

At the latest Village meeting for Burning Man, the theme was Super heroes and Super Villains.

After contemplating several options, including quite a few Marvel villains, I decided to go with Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow).

The thing about the costume is that it JUST BARELY FIT.

Which means I was struggling to get into it.

AND I was struggling even harder to get out of it.

I struggled so hard to get out of it that I SPLIT THE ZIPPER!

Yes, indeed.

I busted the zipper while sitting on the toilet going pee.

Honestly, you spread your knees JUST A LITTLE BIT SO YOU CAN WIPE and WHOOPS!

You’ve busted your zipper.

TMI?

In any case, I took the outfit to Tejas’ house and he proceeded to stitch me into my costume with leather thread and an industrial strength needle.

This is important when sewing through a faux leather costume.

The important thing to note here is that I only had the capacity to stay as long as my bladder wasn’t full.

The minute I had to pee, I had to go home.

It’s an adventure, folks.

I’ve never backed down from a challenge.

I even drank beer when I was there.

In the end, I had a blast as a BLOND Black Widow.

Tejas made me take off my red wig.

He said I made a lousy redhead and I’m not sure he wasn’t’ right.

The addendum to this post is that when I got home, I had to pee rather desperately, but I couldn’t get out of my jumpsuit.

Did I pee my pants?

No.

I had to ask my 19 year old son for help.

You can imagine how THRILLED he was helping his mom out of a sweaty bodysuit.

I believe he let out a string of expletives then suggested that I “act my age.”

Never!
