I’m usually not much for holidays…it’s a long story but somewhere along the way growing up, I decided I didn’t like them anymore, with the exception of Halloween. HA! As long as I don’t have to drive, I can get into it. Maybe it’s the massive sweet-tooth in my head, I dunno but it’s not a bad holiday. My girlfriend keeps reminding me that I haven’t always been such a stinkbug when it comes to things of this nature, so I thought I’d take some time to reminisce a bit.
My sisters and I loved dressing up, although my costumes were never as much work as theirs were. I usually went for the rubber mask.
We were pretty cute.
Not sure if this was Halloween or not but once I had to dress as a clown for a Cub Scout party and do a dance. That was rather an embarrassing moment.
Mom, of course, was so proud…
Anyway, about 11 or 12 years ago, I dressed up as the Invisible Man on Halloween and played drums in-costume all night long. It was fun and a little warm.
I think I may have been given some kind of prize for best-dressed or something. It’s hard to remember. Anyway, we had a good time. Last Year, the CRB dressed up as spooky ghouls and played a show in Athens, Georgia. That was a blast and they even convinced me to sing the Monster Mash. Can you imagine?
You can check out the entire show, here…
But this year, I’m taking it easy on the wild outfit/makeup routine and just going for something a lot more chill…
So, that’s it. Have a good one, everybody and be safe out there!
