What will you be?

For the first time, in what seems like a century, we’ve been invited to a Halloween party. It is a post-pandemic party. I suppose the horrors of always wearing a mask and social distancing have made us all a little giddy, yet still cautious.

Costumes at these events are always fun, but I often feel like my husband and I do better than most, and are often asked, “what are you?”

I fail to tell them that we’re Vampires, but I’ll tell them what our costumes represent. Some of our better costumes have been Zombies in leisure suits, Simon and Garfunkel, hippies, Ron’s parents from Harry Potter, a crazy cat lady, a princess dressed as a fisherman, a Vampire King, and assorted dead ghoulish things. This year I’m going to suggest dead ghoulish things again, or maybe cats. I might also suggest we go as Jim and Tammy Fay Bakker, but I’m not sure I could do that eye makeup for more than an hour. We could go as Leonardo and Mona Lisa. That could be fun and fairly easy to pull together. An exboyfriend and I once went to a Halloween party as Dead Pierre and Marie Curie. We even had an instrument for measuring radioactive activity, our Nobel prizes, and 19th Century clothing under our lab coats. Nobody got it. I thought we were brilliant, considering the party had a historic theme and most of the people there were in the science field. People in science don’t know history obviously.

So what will you be? It is the one day of the year once can pretty much be anyone or anything.

That’s it. Just thinking out loud.

Happy almost Halloween.
