Staff at my new school do themed Halloween costumes.
This year they’re doing The Wizard of Oz. Everyone, repeat everyone, must choose a character.
A fun idea?–perhaps.
Will the kids like it?–maybe.
A pain in the ass for someone who bought a costume back in September?–definitely!
I thought I was being clever by avoiding the annual Halloween “what am I going to wear” panic when I purchased my lovely, handmade Victorian-style gown last month.
I should’ve remembered planning ahead never works.
Grumbling to myself about the money wasted on the first costume, I signed up for a character–the Wicked Witch.
I thought I was being ironic because, well, I don’t think I’m really wicked or witchy…
…then someone said, “Wow–your hair is perfect for the Wicked Witch!”
Yep–I can’t wait to see how Christmas goes down at the new school.
