The Costume Hunt

As most of us know, Gretta has been on a diet. It is no longer a secret. Between a nibble here and a nibble there, she seems to be nibbling all the way to Nowhere. However! A girl needs to do what she needs to do! A Pumpkin Party is coming and yesterday Gretta went on a costume hunt. She plans to be the perfect round pumpkin! She tried on many! Eventually it came down to the fact she needed to seek wise council. Buddy Bonkers stopped in to help her decide.
In the nicest way possible, Buddy Bonkers encouraged Gretta to just loose another pound and she'd be able to fit in the pumpkin! However, he also planted a thought in her noggin! What in the world would a skinny hedgehog look like? So, the decision was made. She would take this one home. In one week, if she could not fit into it...she would just buy a bigger pumpkin!

Now that is a wise choice! Girl, I would just say, go for the bigger pumpkin and be YOU. Those last several pounds are always tough to lose, so don't stress over it; HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THE PARTY!!!

Just wear it as a hat Gretta! It's a "say something kind of a hat day" (from the movie To Wong Foo With Love, from Julie Newmar)(love that movie)

Love from Lady Sherry shopping for a pumpkin hat for myself!

Candy in the pumpkin? You mean I don't have to wear it?
My lucky day...pass the sugar please.

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Oh course you don't have to wear it my dear Gretta, pack that pumpkin full with the candy. Sugar? one lump or two?

OK, I hate to admit this, but this incarnation of Gretta looks, well, delicious.
