Friday...Ummm...Saturday Flashback: Boo!

Trick or treat!!!!!!

Back in 1965, my mom decided that a bunny outfit would be the perfect Halloween costume for me. Oh, the horror! Dad: Couldn't you have stepped in and demanded a more masculine costume? It's amazing that I made it through that Halloween without a lifetime's worth of emotional scarring. And, look at the size of that trick or treat bag. How much candy/sugar would that thing hold? I'm thinking about ten pounds worth. The fact that I overcame that sugar overload and ended up with good teeth must be a miracle of a combination of genetics, good oral hygiene, and self-discipline.

I'll be leaving for Chicago with my parents this Monday morning which means I'll get to see my nieces' and nephew's Halloween costumes in person. I'm going to have to check out upon arrival how my nephew's dressing up for Halloween.

If there's any hint of androgyny...I'm hopping...umm..stepping in!

well at least you were little back then! I really like the flashback photo! I'm hoping I'm aloud to travel so that I can actually gather up my belongings and find some cool photos too...

Ah mrs TBF is so cute... =)

Don't worry. The same thing happened to Ralphie on "A Christmas Story," and look how he turned out.

Buen viaje. Have a Mallow Cup for me.

Ha ha ha ha ha! How cute is that? In 1965 I dressed as a princess - plastic mask, pink stretch pants and brown orthopedic shoes. Really stunning.

It's taking all of my self-control not to correct the word misspelling (not to worry, it's not yours or the misses.)

The picture is so cute. You still look just like you did back then.

orthopedic
orthopaedic

both spellings are correct ;-)

TSK - Get a life!

Christina - I don't think TSK is referring to your spelling.

christina said...

OK, then I'm a happy camper!

The Sour Kraut said...

So much for being nice to me!

He's not aloud to be nice.

The Big Finn said...

TSK - I find your obsession with spelling to be a sign of insecurity and a "cry for help". I'm not being mean...just honest.

I like the bunny costume myself. Show that you're secure in your own identity.

I guess what I find funny isn't what others find funny. I apologize to the readers of this blog if I insulted anyone.

TBF-TMS warned me that if the "get a life" comment upset me, then I'd really be mad at the next one. He was right. I think the best thing for our friendship is for me to no longer comment. And how do you figure you're not being mean?

Wow! People in America sure are sensitive!
