This afternoon we did some last minute shopping for Halloween items, at places including Target, Trader Joe’s, and even the Salvation Army clothing store. I found myself facing a very difficult decision several times.
I couldn’t decide if people had AWESOME costumes, or were just scary trashy people.
That mullet at the Salvation Army, sported by the man wearing jean shorts? The young man in Target with the bad can’t-quite-grow-facial-hair mustache, shorts, and knee-high cowboy boots? The women in the Salvation Army with months-old roots and tight t-shirts over massive protruding bellies? I’m pretty sure all of them, and several others like them, were genuine.
