Ah, Halloween! Such a fun time when adults and children have the chance to be someone or something else! Firefighter, super hero, witch or a ghost are just a few fun costumes you might see.
Last Halloween, I got the opportunity to wear a couple’s costume with my husband. We decided to go to a gala for a charity dressed in our costume. The gala was on the Saturday before Halloween and our attire was perfect for the gala. It was a masquerade ball and everyone would be dressed in ball gowns and suits and ties.
I was on the planning committee and at our last meeting, I asked the team if they would mind if instead of shopping for a gown, I came in a black suit, tie, and hat and my husband would do the same. Together we look like the Blues Brothers and they could use us to sell raffle tickets. I would donate the cost of buying a gown to the charity.
The team laughed and agreed that would work. My friend Cynthia was on the planning committee and let me borrow her son’s black suit jacket and her husband’s hat.
The night of the gala something happened that surprised me…
