“You can be the doctor, and I’ll be the sexy nurse. No? Okay, well, how about this: You dress up as the sexy flight attendant in tight pants, and I’ll be the pilot?” I can honestly say that I’ve never had that conversation with any of my ex lovers during the Halloween season. I’m not opposed to complementary costumes, per se; it’s just never happened before. Given that I’m flying solo this Halloween ( … as I did the year before and the year before that … ), I’d have to say that the complementary costume idea is out the window again. Although my little entourage of friends and I will probably go out partying together somewhere here in the city, we’re sure as hell not going to dress up in matching costumes. That would be too, you know, odd. Couples that do that are “cute”. I’m not sure that the same can be said for a pack of friends.

Halloween costume. Damn. The first of the Halloween festivities begin this weekend, and I have no idea what I’ll wear. In previous years, I was CatWoman, a cheerleader, a queen, and other marginally fun & sexy characters. Last year, I almost stole Mitch’s killer idea of dressing up as a kissing booth. This year, I’ve delayed the daunting task of thumbing through the piles of picked-over costumes. I’m considering dressing up as a French maid or something like that. Maybe I’ll plan to shop online this year. Yahoo News reminds us that “[e]verything from wanton witch to naughty nurse outfits can be found in costume shops across the country and on the Internet.” Thanks for the tip, Yahoo. Another tip? Apparently, pirates are big again this year — for men and women. Aye, what should Me wear for Halloween? I’m not sure. Any thoughts from the peanut gallery? If you’ve got a great sexy Halloween costume idea for a single woman flying solo, feel free to leave it in the comment section. (And, of course, if you’ve already picked out a great costume idea for yourself, tell us about it!)
