On the Wings of a Flying Squirrel



What possesses a young man to make a flying squirrel suit?

Is it rebellion?

Boredom?

 A protest against our casual disregard of airborne rodents?

 I don't know the answers

to these questions.


I only know
That he built it all on his own

and

He will probably wear it to a dance party

my only question--
Have YOU tried it on? It looks like it might be fun:)

I would never fit in Joey's flying squirrel costume. I would have to create a crawling possum costume.

"create a crawling possum costume"-- I love the sound of that phrase. I truly we love to see that. I love the poses of said squirrel, especially the upside down one. Very bat-like. And strangely disturbing. Joe is a riot.

Looks like a glorified "Snuggie" to me!

Haha...he's a good sport, and I bet he's a lot of fun. Maybe it's the "Joey," cause I've got one of those, too, and when my Joey was a teen he behaved a lot like yours. Without the flying squirrel suit. Yeah...uh, he didn't have one of those. But he'd think it was cool. :)

All I can say is that he comes by his sense of humor honestly.

=)

hahaha - Love it. What a great way to spend a summer day.

Is there a Bullwinkle to his Rocky? This reminds me of the time my son made a suit and hat entirely out of duct tape and wore it to school. This is what we have created, we could hang our heads and pretend not to know them, but where's the fun in that?

Dixie Mom said...

Ha! Is it time for school to start yet? :)

Rondo Youman said...

That reminds me of.that kangaroo outfit you.used to.wear that Joey lived in as a youngster.

Jen West said...

I love this! He is a crack up... also :)

karen said...

I really, REALLY like your son. In fact, I think I'd be right at home with the whole family.

Dawn said...

Ummm...okay gotta say it. And I know you're gonna hate me for challenging him to live up to his suit...;)
Lots of pics of him climbing...I wanna see one of him FLYING...heehee...;)

Better a flying squirrel than a vampire bat, I guess.

Kim said...

That is hilarious! What a creative guy. Love that last photo of him hanging.

Oh my word, that looks hot - not in the creepy 40 year old admiring a teenager sort of way, but a sweaty I would melt in that thing sort of way.
