I'm sure you have seen those sign guys around town. You know the ones. They typically have on a funny costume and they are holding giant arrows trying to get you to visit some business nearby. Today, my son was fascinated by a sign guy wearing a Viking hat. He was a good sign guy with lots of cool moves. He was spinning his sign which was a giant arrow and doing some fancy footwork. It made a big impression on Noodlebug.
When we got home he said, "I wish I had a hat with horns."
Because I am extremely weird, a lightbulb went off for me. I went into the garage and pulled down my costume trunk. Sure enough, I had a set of Viking horns. (Who doesn't?) I used to work at a very large Nature and Science museum and we had a Viking exhibit come through years ago. I still had my horns. I thought that would satisfy Noodlebug. But.....if you give a mouse a cookie...
"Mommy, now I need a sign!"
I couldn't help myself.
He needs a little work on his footwork but I'm pretty sure we'll be able to hire him out soon.
