Throwback Thursday: Halloween Edition – Part I
When I was younger, my mother always tried her best to make sure I had a creative costume every Halloween. Of course there were a few years where I dressed up in typical costumes: a clown, Batman, you name it. But then there were years that I stood out. Particular costumes that come to mind include the year that I was Goofy and the year I dressed up as a Conehead. Yes, a Conehead.
The idea was simple enough: dress me up exactly like my dad when he works. The costume definitely worked, too. All I needed was a hardhat, some of his tools, an ID badge, a shirt, and of course an awesome fake mustache.
Not one single person asked me who I was supposed to be. Everyone already knew: the costume was perfect.
Had you told me this costume would be at the top of my list for favorites, I probably would have disagreed. But in hindsight, it is easier to see: like father, like son.
