Hmmm, is this a clue or not to how I look today? Sometimes it’s necessary to improvise when your local retailer nearly sells out all of its Halloween gear. I searched the store and wasn’t able to find what I was looking for. I have a couple opportunities tomorrow to collect my supplies and then the guessing can officially begin.
No, I’m not wearing a Breakout shirt in this very dated photo. It’s simply a funky 70’s shirt I had to wear to school. Very little has changed since that photo was taken, I didn’t dress myself then and I don’t dress myself today. All my clothes were hand-me-downs. Do I really look like I need candy? Did I look like a logger?
Halloween night meant I’d knock on doors with my brothers, carrying a pillow case to transport the sweets. We’d start knocking on doors as soon as it was pitch dark and wouldn’t stop for for a good 2-3 hours later. It was free candy, can you blame us? Staggering home at 8:30pm or so we would measure our success by weighing our pillow cases and comparing the candy. The candy typically would last us about a month. The mini chocolate bars were consumed first and the boring lollipops were last and may even still be rotting away in some closet at my mom’s house. We dined on fine candies for 3-4 weeks solid and I’m happy to say I have about six teeth left in my mouth.
Stay tuned bloggers for a wicked update as my costume evolves throughout Halloween. Have a safe day gang and remember there’s no such thing as calories or sugar on October 31st. Enjoy the day my little pretties!
UPDATE: Okay, here’s a picture of my costume today. I’m lacking a few key props, but hopefully this will illustrate the point. It’s important to think a tiny bit outside of the box. That’s what most of us on the web do anyways. Good luck and may your Halloween evening be fruitful and full of candy. No puking please.
