The Groceries

“Having an identical twin sister growing up in a house without a whole lot of money could be interesting at times, especially when my Mom was feeling a little crafty. She saw something on tv about making costumes out of stuff you have around your kitchen, so she collected receipts, coupons, paper bags and cracker boxes. She then cut the cracker boxes into masks and cut arm holes in the bags. She taped everything on, (not stapled or glued)…taped! We kept ripping and falling apart with every step we took on our class parade. The teacher had to follow us around with more rolls of tape while we walked. My sis and I got upset because the parents kept saying, “oh my gosh! Look at the garbage bags!”
