I was so excited about the new mascot for Donald Rumsfeld Elementary School that I forgot to run it by anyone in the administration. Honestly, I didn’t even know that I had to! The drunken Donald Rumsfeld was so cute and I thought we could have one of the dads put on round wire glasses and a grey wig and play him at special events. Mrs. Swedburg loved my creativity, but thought the theme might be too adult for the younger grades. Fortunately, I only purchased a few of the t-shirts and I was going to order the rest once we knew how many we sold.
So it was back to the ol’ drawing board for Madam Vice President this morning. I still think a tiger is stupid mascot so I tweaked it just a tiny bit this time. I decided we should do a cute nod to all of the divorced moms at our school so I changed the mascot to a cougar. Cute, right? And cougars are almost like tigers.
Yesterday I was told to just go ahead and order 500 t-shirts in a variety of sizes and we will do a second order if we need it. I think everyone is going to love these!
