I remember one year I went as a rat fink. LOL


Rat fink? That's funny. One time I went to a singles Halloween party. The guy I was dating went as a clown and flirted with a woman dressed as a male p**is.

Oh my gosh, so long since I have been in a costume!


I haven't dressed in a Halloween costume since elementary school. But I love to see the kids in the neighborhood all decked out in their costumes.


When I was working in an office, I dressed up as "Miss Orondo," a butterfly, and a cat. I haven't worn a Halloween costume lately.


My favorite adult costumes are always puns like someone going as Identify Theft by having all these different name tags on their shirt.


Yes, puns are good. I like the one about Identity Theft.
