Wednesday, October 22, 2014 – My Halloween Costume

I realize Halloween is still 10 days away, but it is time to put up the Christmas decorations. So get those shelves cleared for the wreaths. I have never been fond of Halloween. People dress like scary things, go to the events such as haunted houses to be scared, and costumed children come to your house where you supply them with candy to add to the childhood obesity issue. The day used to be just that – a single day. Now it is one of the four holiday seasons selected and grown by economically minded corporations.  So I will just sit at home and maybe watch and dance to the Thriller video with Michael Jackson. But If I were to dress up for Halloween, I would go as Condoleezza Rice. She is a classical pianist. She is a lawyer, who served as a presidential advisor and is now a law professor at Stanford. She is a female inaugural member of Augusta National Golf Club, home of The Master Golf Tournaments and she is on the Selection Committee for the NCAA college foortball playoff. But I somehow do not think anyone would understand my costume if I dressed in a Brooks Brothers suit and applied dark brown make up to my face and wore a black wig. People would think I was Queen Latifa and she is really not even a queen. So it’s back to the video. “Cause this is THRILLER…”
