NEW CASTLE —
Thanks to my friend Jennifer, my wife and I actually got invited to a Halloween party.
This was so nice of her because Jen is young and beautiful, and I'm not.
She mentioned that wearing a costume is not mandatory, but it is highly suggested.
It's been about 50 years since I've been to a Halloween Party. I didn't know costumes have changed.
My wife and I went to a store in Boardman and got our masks.
She got a ghost mask, and I bought a redneck mask with hair and a red headband.
I figured they would eventually guess me, because of my masculine build, and maybe the bad knees.
For sure, I thought it might take a little longer than putting my foot in the door, but it didn't.
Right away it was, "Hi, Gary."
I looked around and noticed that we were the only couple with masks on.
In days of old, people had to guess who you were.
There were zombies, a pair of yodelers from the Alps, a blind referee, a football player, a French couple, a prisoner, and a vampire, but none wore masks.
All the costumes were very nice, but I will have to say Tinkerbell was, by far, my favorite.
She was so beautiful, and I just loved touching her wings.
I think her restraining order will be served on me later today.
But now I know what I want to be if I ever get invited to another Halloween Party.
I think I would make a perfect Tinkerbell. I look so good in green.
There might be a slight problem with me sitting down with the attached wings.
I can remedy that by taking my own stool — the chair, not the sample.
No, I won't be painting my toenails cute like she did, but outside of that, I bet I'll make a nice tinker.
