  1. The picture’s a hoot Beth. The dog has that very high-class Lady-like look.Ha! I’m sorry you were mistaken for a flasher. *covers mouth with hand while trying not to laugh* That must have been very funny? Bwahaha! I’ve never had much luck with costumes, I gave up after a while – no one could ever guess what I was. May the force be with you.

  2. Flashy. Y. Not ‘er.’ Ever. Goodness, you could never have predicted that mistaken identity, Beth. Not in your field of vision.

    I like the weather girl thought, although that is retired from your list, huh? How about a parka and snow boots? No fun for the indoor part of the day. Sun dress and southern parasol? Might be too cold … You and your usually vivid imagination are on your own.

    My worst costume choice was the year when I decided that I would go to my colleague’s annual big party dressed as our boss’s famously sloppy desk. It was very hard to attach the big piles of newspapers and stacks of reference books and other leaf papers to myself, and then people just scratched their heads and looked at me like I was a dope. Fail.

  3. Oh, stories about costumes…. Once my hubby and I were driving home from somewhere. He had on a trench coat and a hat. Not sure why we had a pair of glasses with a fake nose and mustache with us… but he put it on. And kept looking straight. I watch other folks as he stopped at traffic lights. I had had a great time watching passengers poke their own drivers to look our way. 🙂

  4. LOL, Beth. I feel your pain on this one.

    One year some friends of mine and I went as the big bad wolf and three little pigs. People thought we were hookers. You’d have thought the noses, ears, and tails a dead give-away. 🙂

  5. The Halloween costumes that appear at my door never cease to amaze me. Seems sometimes an awkward thirteen year old looks like a hooker in a Dolly Parton wig. Who lets ‘Em outa the house? However your post is cute and done in good taste.
