Yes, it’s that time again. The time to stock up on good candy, get a funny costume, and prepare to criticize every parent that lets their underage daughter dress as a sexy fill-in-the-blank. That is my main irritation with this holiday: almost all the adult gal costumes have been made “sexy”: mummy, nurse, witch, princess, even E-BOLA. I usually make my kids’ costumes for that reason. Last year Little One went as the Red Queen, and the year before Eldest went as Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Best costume I ever made for myself was The Booze Fairy, complete with a crown made from mini vodka bottles. It sure was a hit, I can tell you that.
This year Little One suggested I go as the Red Queen. I nixed that idea. Instead, I will go as a Crazy Cat Lady, inspired by my friend, Cruel Wife. I figure that costume can keep me warm while I stand outside handing out candy.
I’ll be outside because otherwise the dogs will go insane with kids ringing the doorbell. I have to think of every last detail.
And no, there will not be any photos of the costume. I still have one shred of dignity and I shall employ it wisely. Besides, no one needs to see my humiliation at the hands of conniving kids. I’ll be sure to write about it, though 😉

I don’t require a photo, but what does a Crazy Cat Lady look like?

I’ll post it to the social site next week. You’ll understand what I mean then 😀

Several years ago a young teen came to our door in a plaid shirt and jeans. I told him that unless you have a costume, you get nothing. He pulled out a pellet gun, pointed it at his head and said, “I’m Kurt Cobain.”
It was awesome.
