I polished my fingernails with glitter and put on some blue lipstick to go with my first ever Halloween costume. My Mom and Dad were great in so many ways, but we never bought or made Halloween costumes. It wasn’t that we didn’t have fun, but parties were all about holidays and food traditions. So I was already laughing when I went online to find a Halloween costume. Because the party was going to be outdoors, I decided on a costume that was a coat – I became the Mother of Dragons from Game of Thrones, never mind that I didn’t watch the series.The coat with its chain across the front was fun to wear, but the most fun was the wig. I had always wanted to have long blonde hair. My costume brought a lot of laughs from my children and looks of surprise from my neighbors. And I laughed a lot. I became the kind of person who has and wears a Halloween costume.
