Playing Dress Up

I have no idea what to be for Halloween this year. My family always holds a Halloween party, so the pressure is on to dress up. I'm not into gore. I'm tired of the old stand-bys. I'm feeling a need to be clever and creative but it seems neither of those words are finding their way into my psyche. I've got very limited funds, so it must be something easy and cheap - like a sheet over my head. But Chelle did that last year.

What a stupid dilemma. I should just do what my mom does and be the same thing year after year (after year after year) or what my dad does, and wear a hat that says "This is my costume" and not dress up at all. But then I know myself, and I would feel like I'd missed out on some great opportunity for a once-in-a-life-time transformation. What is it about this time of year that makes us feel like the only way to feel normal is to be as totally abnormal as possible?

Mom's a witch, don't want to do that... I mean her costume, of course. My dad's hat wouldn't fit ... and I don't want to be like him, anyway.

Now the needle ... that's a thought!
