Halloween 2009: Planning already in progress

Brian's sister's birthday is on January 4th. There was a rule when she was growing up (that Brian still likes to remind her of) that she couldn't start talking about her birthday until after Thanksgiving. Without such a rule, she began planning her birthday on January 5th, or so I am told. So it is with some wariness that I am bringing up next Halloween just over a week after this year's, but since I married into the Addams family, I figure I will be forgiven.

Usually I dress up as something boring and not very scary for Halloween. The past three years have seen me as a cat, a simple witch, Hermione Granger. But I have a costume figured out for next year, one that amuses me and is guaranteed to terrify at least 52% of Californians: I'll team up with a female friend and we'll both put on wedding dresses and go around as two adults in a loving, committed relationship who just wish we could legalize our marriage.

I've got my wedding dress all ready to go! It's not like it's good for anything else.

Rachel, you and your wedding dress are totally coming to South Pas for Halloween with me next year! You definitely need an excuse to wear it again, and I need a parter in crime (so to speak). But that's what you get for picking a wedding-y wedding dress. I managed to wear mine to the "policy prom" when I was in grad school.

Liz, I have a costume idea that's even more forlorn and bittersweet than yours: I'm going to dress as a guy who couldn't get a date to the "policy prom."

Elizabeth said...

Whatever, dude. I was the girl who's date ditched her at the policy prom.

So I've been thinking about my 27th birthday...
