At least I didn't quit my day job...

Last week I volunteered at a Halloween carnival for little kids that live in the projects. I signed up to volunteer for this thing thinking I would be running a carnival game or the cotton candy machine.

When I got there the event coordinator came running over to me desperate for another face painter. Turns out one of the ones they had already scheduled couldn't make it so they needed someone else.

Desperate times call for desperate measures and I decided to fake it until I made it. Turns out face painting is A LOT harder than it looks and most of the kids that left my station ended up looking like this.....

At least they had fun right?! And luckily there were no mirrors at the face paint station so they didn't know the difference!

(These are google kids and not pictures of the real faces I painted but they pretty accurately portray my face painting skill level)
