Halloween Party anxiety!

It the time of year for spooks, ghouls & goblins…and anxiety for me!

I have been invited to a Halloween Party and was told, on no uncertain terms, that I had to dress up. Yikes! I hate this stuff. I have hated the costuming part of the holiday since I was a kid. Those of you of a certain age, will remember the plastic masks that were a joy to wear. They were sharp around the edges, especially the eye holes and never fit quite right, so you always risked slicing a jugular or walking in front of a car because you couldn’t see. It was another of those things that my generation survived…sort of like riding a bike without a helmet.

Okay, back to the costume. Last year my Mom (bless her heart) made me a costume of my own design. Here it is…

I am pictured with uber-celebrity Deb Neuman. Mom cut out of fabric and sewed leaves onto a green shirt. From there I pinned condoms (in the package) on. Nobody got it! It was a hit when I did a similar version in college. It’s a Rubber Tree!!

Moving right along…

I am now trying to thing of something to wear for this year. I am very tempted to visit the local costume shop to see what they might have. But, I also know that I will be paying big bucks to rent something. I could go to temporary store in the Mall to see what I could piece together, but, being a man “of stature”, the things offered at these stores often don’t fit.

Maybe I’ll just appear as a Retail Wireless Consultant! LOL!!!

Comment with ideas. I’d love to hear them.

Just an avid reader in the little town of Bangor, Maine (Yes, that Bangor...home of Stephen King). When I'm not reading and drinking coffee, I sell cell phones by the sea shore.
