I had a conversation with my mother last week. It was over the course of a few days and across a few mediums. It went something like this:
Me: I got Theo a Halloween costume. He's going to be Officer Theo! I'm super excited, he's going to look really cute. Check out these pictures I took of him in his new costume.
Mom: You are seriously deranged. I consider this animal abuse.
(That is a direct, cut-and-paste quote.)
Me: I am not! It's not more abusive than you dressing me up as a child. What's the big deal?
Mom: You know how I feel about people who dress up their dogs.
Me: I'm not dressing him up and walking him around town just for the sake of it. It's Halloween! It's a costume!
Mom: Still...you're dressing him up. I don't know anyone who is crazy enough to dress up their dogs.
Me: No one? No one even for Halloween?
Mom: No one.
Me: Not even your sister dresses up Brownie, the dachshund she's absolutely nuts about?
Me: I'll bet she does and she just doesn't tell you about it because she knows you'll call her deranged and abusive.
