Think before you speak

Have you ever said something and then immediately wished you could stuff the words back into your mouth? 

It's one of my best friend's 21st birthdays this weekend and, since he's spent the last 6 months in Belgium, we all have to dress up as something from Belgian culture (not the easiest subject in the world).  I made an off-hand comment that I was thinking of coming as the Atomium and he got so excited that to now NOT come as the atomium would be like kicking a puppy.

Have you ever seen the Atomium????

How on earth am I supposed to dress up like that?!?  Unfortunately the quilting has had to be put to one side until I can turn myself into some giant silver balls. 


  1. Oh, that will be a tough one. Can you print that photo out on fabric and attach it to a grey/silver shirt. Then wear all grey. Maybe make a grey/silver hat that is round.

  2. How about covering a hat with aluminum foil, using some straws and foil covered styrofoam balls to create the atom on the hat... then wear a silver dress??
