Entry level cosplay: Overly Ambitious

(scene opens over chaotic pre-scouting dinner table)
Alpha: Mom, I figured out my Halloween costume for next year. (hands over a Magic Card)
Me: Oh yeah? (looks at Eldrazi) Uh…I’m seeing a lot of tentacles and gross appendages. I think this might be beyond our security clearance.
Beta: Security clearance? What does that even mean?
Me: It’s a Table Top reference. It means that our skills aren’t up to the task of making it.
Beta: Then why didn’t you just say that?
Me: Because I’m a Geek and I only know how to talk in game references.
