is this real life?

we went to a birthday party where everyone dressed as the person
they would be if money were no option.

russ wishes he were himself, but also a farmer.
{so basically his dad minus the cigarettes and beer.}
and i would live in paris, and paint and ride my bike all day.

have you ever seen a farmer and a parisienne painter marry?
nope me neither. good thing we're just emily and russ.
party go-ers thought i was either marcel marceau or mr. smee.

russ will deny this, but i think he loves dressing up.
he gets a little too far into character for comfort.

{a.} insisted we drive in his fugly work truck that he got in a trade.

real classy.

{b.} had to bring my brother's dog scout for the full effect.

scout smells like parmesean cheese.

edit: title of post comes from this video. a must see.
what would you be?
