I need your creative help...

I've got a quick question for you. There's a lady in my bible study who is an artist and is taking a portrait class at the college here in town. She asked if I would be interested in modeling for the class. (I will be wearing clothes in case you're wondering.) But here's the problem. She said to think of some type of "costume" for the portrait. She said some just wear a big hat or something simple. I'm all about simple. It shouldn't be obnoxious or anything b/c she's going to give me her painting of me when she's done with it and I don't want to look at it and just laugh. Maybe I could give it to my mom or something. Do any of you have any ideas?

Man, I'm worthless. I can't come up with anything. I was trying to think of something funny, yet simple that you could do. The best I could come up with is a California Raisin.

Thanks Scott, the California Raisin thing was just what I was looking for. I'm sure Mom would be so proud to have that hanging on her wall!! :) Keep thinking though, I'd say you're on the right track, but then I'd be lying!

Brook, go to my blog! I have just posted a whole bunch of creative ideas for you! This is what I like to do when I go to antique shops!

Get a Harley Davidson Hat and vest. You'd be the coolest mom on the planet.

Sometimes I worry about you, Scott! And to think we trusted you with our kids! Sheesh! :?)

Hilarious! I still have 6 days until I have to pose for this thing. The professor has a authentic German dance costume (whatever that is??) for me if I need it. Also, I have a friend who used to be in a christian band and I may raid her rock-star closet to see what I come up with. I'm still not sure though. Thanks for all the input guys keep it up!!
