Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays.!! As a child, I loved getting dressed up and going around the neighborhood collecting candy. Usually, I went with my siblings and cousins. At the end of the evening, we would pour out all the candy on the floor and negotiate candy exchanges.!! It was fantastic.! I would collect as many of my favorite candy bars as I could.!!

As an adult, I loved getting dressed up and going to costume parties with my friends.! I am always fascinated by people’s choices because I think it says volumes about them.!! Including the fact that for almost a decade, one of my brothers went as a pirate because he was too lazy or uninspired to come up with a new idea.! hahaha… Some of my favorite past Halloween costumes include a Starbucks barista, a 1920s flapper, and a witch.!!…

  1. I used to work for a local university. Our department had a strict dress code. One Halloween, I showed up to work in torn jeans, old t-shirt, and a red checked northern lumberjack shirt. The boss went on looking down her nose to ask me, “and what are you supposed to be?” I did no makeup, no zombie thing, not my style.

    I digress, her attitude sucked! lol more than mine did. My response, well, I could be a farmer … or a fisherman … or a lumberjack … or, this could simply be my redneck Sunday best, the choice is yours what you choose to see me as! Oooooo I was very unpopular that day. But damn, I felt the most physically comfortable than I had in years! Hehehe, the one day of the year where I could just be … Jejeje …

    • That’s awesome.!! Her attitude was so not fun.! You don’t need to wear ghoulish makeup to be dressed for Halloween.! I used to work for Starbucks…for many, many years. For a very long time, my go to Halloween costume was a Starbucks barista.! It was easy and economical 🙂

      On another note – I bet DR is a long way from that university dress code 🙂
