It’s that time of year again

I escorted wifeGeeding into Michael’s over the weekend, and this is what I saw:

I’m not sure if this is only a Texas thing or not, but for those of you that don’t know what’s in this picture, its called a homecoming mum.

When highschools have their homecoming football game, for some reason boyfriends or parents buy girls mums to wear to school the day and night of homecoming.  I always hated the existence of these things for several reasons.  Not only are they big and ugly, and cost a lot of cash, but most of them have small cowbells on them.  That’s right, cowbells, and that is all you would hear all friggin’ day at school.  It still gives me a headache.

How much do they cost?  I’m not really sure since I never bought one, but I think the average price is around $75 to $100.  But as you can see in the picture posted below, you can even pay $299 for one.
