The last Halloween party I attended was in 1984, and finding a suitable costume was something of a challenge. For some reason I could never figure out, the man in my life (the magician I mentioned here) was hellbent on going to the party dressed as a priest. He'd made up his mind about that months before and wouldn't even consider any other costume.
I wanted to coordinate my costume with his, but I didn't want to go as a nun, the obvious choice. After thinking about it for a few days, I could only come up with one idea that might work. He agreed to it, we enlisted the aid of a friend, and all that was left to do was improvise our costumes.
We were a little concerned that our choice might offend someone at the church-sponsored party, but it turned out that they all had a good sense of humor. In fact, we won first prize.
Now, tell me what you think we were. (Hint: We were disorderly in this photo.)
And have a happy Halloween!
