Happy Halloween, folks!! Let foolishness reign! This is a holiday that adults are jacking from the kids, because I think we have more fun than they do. Although Trick or Treating is an AWESOME tradition. What other time can you go scrounging for sweets from random people? I think it started through a diabolical plan hatched between dentists everywhere to make more money. Yes, it was a great plan.
Women love Halloween because we get the chance to rock the extra tiny outfits we may or may not be comfortable wearing on any regular day (like the countless folks that will be wearing a
Mariah Carey teeny tiny black dress and cat ears). Men love the day because they get a chance to see all the women in tiny costumes, while also rocking crass and vulgar ish themselves. *Sigh* I miss college. College students counted down til Halloween, and the costumes never disappointed me. I saw a group of 6 people who walked in a three 2-person lines, wrap themselves in aluminum foil, and call themselves a 6-pack of beer. And of course, there were countless human condoms and human pizzas everywhere. Good times…
Anyway, I’m one of those people with bootleg Halloween costumes that lack any ingenuity or creativity, and I’ll be d*mned if I actually go out and purchase something just to wear for this one day. I’m the cheapo who goes as myself, but calls it something else. Like when I went as a “Black Panther” by wearing a black jacket, black cargo pants, black boots, and a hat. CLEARLY that could be an outfit I rock on, say, any weekday. Then last year, I went as “Carmen Sandiego” (wore a trench coat, a fedora, and knee boots. Also something I’d put on whenever.) This year, maybe I’ll wear one of my trusty argyle sweater vests and say I’m going as a preppy yuppie.
My plans so far include going Trick or Treating with my niece and nephews (a 6-month old Strawberry, an 11-month old Winnie the Pooh, and a 3-yr old Pirate). I wonder how much candy
I they will collect. If I need a root canal on Monday, you shall know why. I may go to Boystown to people watch. The Gays never seem to disappoint when it comes to awesome costumes.
So what are you folks rocking on this here All Hallow’s Eve? And let me know what crazy costumes you come across.
