Costume Malfunction

By malfunction, I mean, it isn't there. I want to wear something for Halloween tomorrow, but I just don't think it is going to happen. I asked Cora to build me a Borg costume months ago, and, unless she plans on unveiling it early tomorrow morning(which I doubt), I have nothing to wear. I mean, yeah, I could go as a substitute teacher, but it's been done! I have some hats...and even a few helmets...I am not sure how they will work. So, I guess I just won't worry about it.

I have always liked hats. I guess it has something to do with that Bugs Bunny cartoon where a truck load of hats flips over and releases tons of hats into the wind. Each hat in turn lands on Bugs and Elmer Fudd, ad they each take on the attributes associated with the hats. At one point a bonnet lands on one of them and a top hat on the other, and one becomes the suitor of the other. Then a drill sergeant's hat lands on one and a General's hat on the could happen! well, I can't afford not to be ready to instantly be able to fly a helicopter just by donning a helicopter helmet. How upset would I be if the opportunity came up and I did not own a helicopter pilot's helmet?

And you never know when a wormhole will open up and transport you back to WWI! You have to be ready!

or East Germany during the Cold War???

How about the Air Force? All I need is a silver bird!

or the 1930s? Play it again Sam! Where is the nearest speak easy?

And, my best guess is I should be ready to golf with this one...

and finllay, given my propensity for exploring Naval facilities I am not supposed to...the last one might come in pretty handy.

What do you folks think? Should I wear a hat for Halloween? I am teaching High School tomorrow. I enjoy popularity, if not extreme respect. Go figure.
I appreciate your suggestions!

Grandma said...

You look good in each of those hats. Wear your hats tomorrow...

You really need to keep the two second to last. They look like that hats I see the old men wearing around the hospital. They will come in handy someday!
