The other day, I went bowling in my t-rex costume (as one does, right?). It was a birthday party with a suits theme. So I wore my dino suit over my bathing suit (it sure does get hot in there, guys!), and trekked to a local bowling establishment.
And while I was standing in the bowling alley (they are not designed for t-rexes, you guys), I realized that I was taking up more than my fair share of space. In fact, I found myself regularly apologizing for my tail whacking someone or my head knocking on the people in the next lane over from us. It was rough being the biggest girl in the place.
But when I moved out of the way for a group of young “gentlemen” entering the alley and passing our lane, I was shocked and dismayed to discover that a stranger slapped my t-rex ass!
Wearing my T-rex suit at the bowling alley…and some guy slapped the top of my tail. I think that counts as dino assault, right? #Ttoo

Now, I know that this is actually a serious topic. I have my own stories of harassment and violation, but I had to laugh at the ridiculousness that happened. You can’t see the person inside the costume, so the guy had no idea whether it was a woman or man inside the suit…and I’d really like to have seen that dude’s — a guy in his early to mid-twenties — reaction when a buxom lady in her cough thirties jumped out of the suit to kick his ass. But meh. It was more humorous than anything else.
Anyways, I went and made a video of my adventures, so I’d love to share it with you. Enjoy!
