I am not big on Halloween, but this year, I’ve been invited to both a Halloween party, and then next week, a Day of the Dead party. For tomorrow night’s Halloween party in a friend’s barn, I am reprising a costume from 2007 and am going as Kitchen Nightmares. Here, my late friend, John Gutierrez and I are cooking up some of his famous goulash at a Halloween party. I borrowed a chef’s jacket from a chef friend, complete with set-in kitchen stains, and then am decorating it with iron-on bugs and rats. I have a chef’s toque that will also be decorated. I will be carrying a huge chef’s knife, but will probably ditch it in a corner at the first opportunity.
I did have to go on a bit of a rant and wonder why every.single.costume for women is marketed as “sexy”. Who wants to be a sexy meter maid or a sexy minion? Ugh!
No wonder she plays tricks on me!
Have a safe and happy Halloween.
