[wo]men in black

i'm running sound tomorrow night for our vacation bible school, which has a secret agent theme. i am enjoying this email excerpt with betsy.


subject: options

me: spy #1: cool rock star spy [black corduroys, black t-shirt, black denim jacket].

spy#2: [wo]men in black spy [black business suit].

of course, i haven't worn the business suit in well over five years so it might not even be an option.

b: I would go with rock star. I mean, you are soundwave [ed. note: sound operators' code name for the week].

You have black corduroys?

And a black denim jacket?

Are you sure you aren't a spy?

me: i can neither confirm nor deny that.

b: And you wonder why people are intimidated.


and later... 

me: i'm playing with outfits here. i don't really look like a secret agent per se, but if we're going for Depressed Angry Teenager or Goth Biker Chick, we are SO totally in business.

I am so glad I have mastered the art of silently laughing hysterically. Because otherwise I'd have to explain to my coworkers why "depressed angry teenager" is so funny.

Glad you're having fun with VBS.
