You would lose your head

My wonderful son is 17 years old and is a senior this year. Now, I love the kids unconditionally, but there are times he drives me crazy.  He has a habit of misplacing things and then when you are in a hurry he can't find it so it is a panic.  For instance, his senior pictures he couldn't find his purple tie that I know he wore for our Christmas picture.  So he ended up wearing my husband's tie.  For his pictures he wore quite a few different outfits and has 189 proofs to choose from.  Naturally the one, that I am interested in is the one in which he is wearing the purple tie.  Now since my husband is in hospice care, I don't think that my son thinks about the fact that the kids pictures are on the wall and that I will always know it is Jeff's tie and that does bother me.  In a way it is special, but I also find it sad.  When my son does this I have said to him, "It is lucky that your head is attached or you would lose that."  Now Torico just came out with this new image and I couldn't resist getting it to make a card for guess who?  I asked Paulette at TLC to make the perfect sentiment and she was so kind to do so.  Now I have the PERFECT Halloween card for Trevor.
