Every month at our mission base, we have a big birthday party to celebrate all the people who have birthdays that month. The parties are wild affairs, usually involving costumes and crazy games and contests. In the spirit of good fun, I usually put some work into my costume for each month’s party. This surprises some people. Apparently, I come across as the serious type, supposedly not given to much silliness.
So for our September birthday party we had a hoedown–the type of thing that often happens in a barn, if I’m not mistaken. I, therefore, dressed up as a cow. Not just any cow, but a cool cow. Here are some pictures:
We were broken up into teams for this party, and one of the contests we had was to put together some sort of a skit themed according to our team’s costumes. On my team we had a couple of guys who are pretty good rappers, so we did a rap about a backwoods Arkansas cow that moved to L.A. and turned into a gangsta in the ‘hood. The best part was that the cow became a Christian, too, so it started doing cool stuff like giving its milk away. It was good stuff; we had a fun time with it. Bet you’ve never seen a cow do the ‘worm’ before!
(Bonus: Two points for anyone who can leave a comment correctly explaining what’s wrong with my costume.)
