Safety is job none.

Costumed Characters.
Corporate Mascots
A guy and a girl.
Meet, date, fall in love, get married, go on honeymoon.
We were supposed to also maybe have a BABY!
I even saw a neoprene "on the Go!" baby with a carrying sling-thing.
They left it in the hot car at Piedmont Park.
That's not right.

AB and I show up at Piedmont Park at 8:00. Ouch!
Well, 8:10. Oops!
We walk to the gazebo/bridge. Put on the neoprene or neoprene-esque costumes, thinking they're the same size: giant-mascot-size.
Apparently i had grabbed the "on the Go! guy" costume.
AB had the "on the Go! girl".
They said, ehh, just keep them that way.
Ok.
So, the rest of the day I play Matt playing the on the Go! guy.
Within minutes 3 things become painfully clear:
1) There will be sweat. Lots of sweat. Many of you know Matt. He told me I stunk. I did. Neoprene wicked away as much moisture as it could possibly wick. I smelled wicked.
2) Walking literally 5 steps in the mascot "boots" began the blistering/bruising/chafing process.
3) I am more manly than I am girly/Matt plays girly mighty easily. (faggot)

Remember that Props list from a few days ago?
Every one of them: used. And add candles, gas fireplace, wedding cake/ring/veil, picnic stuff.
Every one of them: thought to be hilarious
Many of them: endangered or kinda hurt us in some way. (tandem bike/fireplace/any walking at all)

It may have been worth it to get these pictures, though.
And the video will be great for our reels. ...

We laughed about that one a lot.

Wow. Matt told you that you stank.
Wait. Matt? Told you you stank?
Seriously?
MATT?
Really?
I don't. . . unable to wrap head around concept. . . reality flipping. . . paradigm spinning out of control. . . blackout.

Shut UP!

It was that shirt!
It's 13 years old, has only been used for pulling lobster traps from the Chesapeake Bay, jogging, and buffering mascot costumes. Bless its heart.
