Inspired by a friend I search for the ultimate Halloween Costume
What do you want to be for Halloween
my best friend used to ask me starting sometime during the middle of August.
” I don’t know yet.” I used to tell her.
When I got married and had kids the question changed to,
” What are your kids going to be for Halloween?”
” I don’t know yet.” was my 20 year old reply.
It’s funny how it’s come full circle.
Now our kids are grown and we are back to attending costumes parties, and I still have problems with deciding
what to be for Halloween.
And then one year I got tired of being called ‘costume challanged’.
I put effort into it
This time when my friend called and asked what was I going to be for Halloween I said,
” I’m going to be you.”
” I’m going to be you. ” I said.
” That’s silly.” she said.
” No more silly than dressing up as a Space Alien or a Mummy or a Witch.”
” Well, you can’t be me.”
” Yes I can. I can and I will and I’ll be so good at it, that you will pale in comparison. You won’t matter. You will just be a pale imitation of me.”
” Anita, that’s just freaky and weird….and…”
” A darn fine idea.”
And then she asked:
” You’re going to write about this, aren’t you?” she asked.
And I did.
