I don't think a Halloween has gone by when I didn't dress up. Well, maybe in college (but why not??).
A couple of years ago I was a pirate and looked like Johnny Depp. Last year a plastic surgeon (surgeon's aqua costume, wrapped plastic wrap about my head, waist.....). This year a repeat of the silver siren with a black wig, silver makeup, black and silver big drapey costume with a high collar. (I'll post a pic tomorrow.)
When I was a kid, I'd start trick or treating three days before Halloween. My mother would drive me. We’d begin with the far reaches of the neighborhood. I had three costumes, one for each night.
People would open their front doors and look at their watches, look at each other and say, Is it Halloween??
Just about, I’d say.
They mostly gave me money and apples. I didn’t know that you should confine Halloween to just one night and apparently neither did my mother.
Who has Halloween anecdotes out there? Let's hear them!
