How are you all dressed up for the day? Any good plans or scary stories? I am off to work in the special garb of the day

I am scary enough without dressing up in a costume, but when I was
younger I always thought about putting on a real scary mask and
appearing at the window to frighten the kids. I told my oldest daughter
that about 10 minutes ago and she said she's glad I didn't do it.

Re: Halloween Tricks & Treats

I thought about putting on an orange work vest, and a construction hard hat from work and maybe strap on a tool belt to be a construction worker when we go out with our kids for trickertreatin tonight. Problem is there are probably a lot of construction workers in my predominantly working class neighborhood who might not laugh at my choice of costume.

Re: Halloween Tricks & Treats

Would they be "not laughing" at your choice of costume.........or laughing at how you look posing as a construction worker?

Might mistake you for one of the Village People...not that there is anything wrong with that
