Do you like Halloween? I love it!! So does my best friend Natalie. Every year we go trick or treating together in coordinating costumes. You know - the good witch and the bad witch ( I was the good), Yellow and Orange M&M's (yellow here) and even *gulp* Disney Princesses. I was... I can't even tell you, it's too embarrassing. In fact, I'm 99.9% positive I have destroyed all photographic evidence of that horrific day. Anyway, this year, Natalie wanted to go as clowns, but to be honest, clowns really creep me out, so I suggested we go as pop stars instead. I figured we could get those funky colored wigs and hold pretend microphones. Cool right? That's what I thought too, so I asked Mom if she could take us to the store so we could look for our costumes, and do you know what she said? She said, "Millicent Marie aren't you getting a bit old to go trick or treating?"
SAY WHAT? Is she crazy? Okay - don't answer that. I'm not supposed to be saying mean things on this blog, remember? But seriously - since when is there an age limit on Halloween? I mean even all the advertisements in the paper have adult costumes in them, and it's not like I'm fifty - - I'm only twelve! (And not that there's anything wrong with a fifty year olds going trick or treating - it's just a number I made up to make my point. So please - all you fifty year old - don't start sending me hate mail!)
Well, it took some doing, but I think I convinced Mom that trick or treating has nothing to do with age. It has to do with dressing up and having fun and hanging out with your friends - and oh yeah - there might be some candy involved too, but mostly it's about having fun.
So what do you think? Is there an age limit on Halloween? And while you're at it - what are you or your kids going as this year? Let me know, cause I just LOVE it when you all leave me cool comments. Otherwise, I just feel like I'm talking to myself. (Not that there's anything wrong with that either - that Karen Toz lady does it all the time!)
