Rick and I have been trying to figure out our Halloween costumes.
I was set on us going as Danny Zucco and Sandra Dee from Grease. I went out and bought a poodle skirt. But I felt sort of frumpy.
I did once dress up as slutty Sandra Dee (you know, at the end of the movie) where we young girls all learned that if you dress like a whore, you will finally get your man. I wore a black leotard, matching tights and my grandmother’s short, curly wig. I was eight. And I looked ridiculous.
And everyone thought I was a senior citizen cat.
I think Grease is off the table.
I texted Rick another costume idea… Charlie Sheen.
Except I accidentally texted this genius idea to our contractor.
I can only assume that come Monday, our contractor will be putting in our kitchen cabinets while dressed like this…
I’m absolutely sure the painters will go as his goddesses.
But then I shifted gears again because I was able to borrow a go-go girl outfit. I thought it would be perfect if Rick went as Austin Powers.
Me: You can be Austin Powers!
Rick: Ah… Ok
Me: And I’ll be one of those sexy go-go girls he hangs with or something. I can’t really remember the movie. But I know I remember a go-go girl.
Rick: I never saw the movie.
Me: Well, trust me – Austin Powers is HANDSOME.
Unfortunately, a quick google of “Austin Powers costumes” quickly brings this up…
Maybe handsome is not exactly the most apt description.
More ruggedly retro.
Rick has vetoed Austin Powers.
To be continued…
