It's beginning to look a lot like Halloween

In movies, kids go trick-or-treating door-to-door and you open the door and see them standing there in their costumes with eager looks on their faces, bags outstretched. What about a realistic Michigan Halloween? Eager looks, check. Bags, check. Costumes? Hmmm.

And what are you? A princess in a parka? Well, isn't that cute? And you are a crayon in a coat? Adorable. Awwwww, it's Anakin Skywalker in an anorak. An Orc in an overcoat. Jack Sparrow in a ski jacket.

This is October in Michigan, people. Don't even get me started on the grown-up costumes. Sexy French maid... in sexy snowpants, perhaps.

[Okay, I originally planned to blog on this topic months ago. Now I look at the weather report for Friday and it's supposed to be 61 degrees. Bah!]

I remember dressing up as a gypsy in fourth grade and having to wear corduroy pants underneath my skirt.

Yeah, I only wrote as much as I had to to get the right column longer. There's still more to come, though!

See, you go into the whole thing with "what costume will fit *over* my winter coat?" That way you don't have to cover anything up.

Awwwww, it's a bulgy Beauty and the Beast. A puffy Power Ranger. A spherical skeleton.

Vermont's the same.

I went as Tinkerbell once. I had to take off my wings and put on a sweatshirt.

Then there was the time I went as Cleopatra. The queen of the Nile. In Egypt. You know, desert, sand, HOT SUN?

That was a bad year.
