Hey Fuzz Fans,
No questions this month cause I know what everybody is thinkin': "What am I going to eat for Halloween?...I mean, dress as for Halloween?"
A few suggestions:
1) If It's a decade-themed party you are attending, dress as yourself from that decade. So for me going to an 80s party, I would dress in a soccer uniform and inexplicably wear both knee and elbow pads.
If it were a 90s party and I had a liter of fake blood that was gonna go bad before next Halloween I would dress as myself on a specific day in the 4th grade (Kid's clothes = lots of big stripes) during which I borrowed my friend Ramon's left-handed catcher's mitt during recess and ended up predictably catching a baseball square in the nose. (I was, and am, right handed.)
I used every last paper towel in that place to get the nosebleed stopped. Blood was everywhere.
*Shout out to all the Ramons out there lending their sporting equipment to friends only to have it returned with blood stains.
2) Don't overlook the classic pumpkin costume. There's a chance people will dump candy down the front of it all night, but that's a good problem to have.
3) Lazy and have a beard? Just wear a plaid shirt and tell everyone you are Al Borland* from Home Improvement.
Attire that looks like it was ripped out of The Lost Boys is a good starting point.
Mark is a former lawyer who lives in Nashville. If you see a guy walking a golden retriever in Germantown, feel free to say Hi. You should know, however, that there is another guy who looks a lot like Mark who also walks a golden retriever in Germantown so you might be saying Hi to the wrong dude. It has caused confusion in the past—including one particular incident where the other dude's wife hollered down the street at Mark several times before getting a closer look and realizing her mistake. Anyway, say Hi. You can also find him on the internet at basketofchips.com and @cmharrod.
