This Halloween feels very different because it’s the first one where Hailey isn’t here to dress up so in true empty-nest fashion I decided that Hunter S. Thomcat would be a fair substitute, especially since he actually enjoys wearing hats and costumes. And it was awesome.
Except that Hunter is a pleasingly plump cat and every time he moved his dress would pop open. (Relatable.)
He was not pleased. Although it really helped him nail the angry Wednesday Addams look.
So we pivoted.
And I was quite pleased until I realized that I also was popping out of my dress and the wig was uncomfortable so instead I’m switching to an obscure literary costume that probably no one will understand but if you do we need to be friends immediately because we had the same weird-ass childhood.
