“Hurry up man. The party starts in an hour,” I said slightly agitated. “It’s Halloween. How do you not have already have a costume?” “Hey, don’t rush me, dude,” Jimmy said. “You just told me about the invite this afternoon. I had other plans and besides the best costumes are gone.” Looking around I saw he was right and calmed down somewhat. After spying a clear piece of cellophane, I grabbed it and handed it to Jimmy. “Here, hold this up to your face.” Looking confused, Jimmy did so. “What’s this?” he asked. “Your Halloween mask. If that doesn’t strike terror, nothing will.” “Very funny. Guess I’ll go with the classic reaper costume. It won’t win any awards but it’s about the party anyway.” Later we met up with Derek who was dressed as Bum Phillips, and Delores who looked stunning normally was absolutely spectacular in an extremely form fitting toga. “Wow,” I said. “That sheet leaves nothing to the imagination, does it?” “Yeah,” Jimmy concurred. “That’s what I call a…” “Please, don’t say it,” I begged. “…fitted sheet,” Jimmy finished. Despite that groan-inducing remark Delores beamed and said that was the reaction she was looking for. “I hear that witch Tasha is wearing a cat woman suit but I think I’ll be the cat’s meow tonight. Let’s go boys.” Arriving fashionably late at Ricardo’s house, where the party was being held, I noticed the doorbell on the front door had an out of order sign on it. Nice touch, I thought as I pushed the button which produced an eerie groan. “Neat,” I commented and pressed the buzzer again. “Oohhhhh….!” This time a spooking sounding moan was heard. After a few minutes, no one came to the door so I pressed the speaker box. “Hey guys,” Ricardo answered. We heard party sounds in the background. “Come in the side door. The doorbell’s busted and I have an electrician working on it now.” “Electrician?” I asked. “Uh, maybe you better check on him.” “Why?” “No reason. We’re coming around now.” Once inside I spotted my friend George who was dressed in regular clothes but for some reason was carrying his girlfriend Michelle around on his back. “What’s up, G? What are you supposed to be?” “I’m a turtle,” he replied. “But you have no costume and your girlfriend is on your back.” “Right. That’s Michelle.” On that note, I excused myself and introduced myself to a cute, sexy Lady Gaga look-alike I met eyes with across the room. We hit it off and snuck into a side room where in our passion we accidently activated the room’s speaker system leading to a bizarre sequence during the séance session where our grunts and groans were mistaken for voices from the ‘other side’. All in all, it was a good night for all and even the electrician joined in the fun after he recovered. I indulged in a bit too much punch and missed the costume contest in which Delores placed second. “Who the hell could’ve beat you?” I asked later. “Don’t tell me, Tasha.” “No. She didn’t even place, and at least I could deal with losing to her. But who do I lose to? A guy in a Lady Gaga costume!” Delores exclaimed. “Can you believe it?” Sadly, I could. Gotta love Halloween.
