Halloween Fun & Friendship

A photo of My two girlfriends, Ursula and Robin, and myself, Dressed up as the "three blind mice". We were a hit!!!

 

I don’t normally put a lot of thought into dressing up for Halloween activities.  I may throw together my “80s aerobics instructor” to teach a fitness class IF it happens to land on Halloween.  But, if I have a really creative costume idea… I just might have to give it a go!  …… and I’m not talking “Sgt. Slut” or “Naughty night nurse”…… Good lord, that’s another website! 

I had to dress up for the annual Halloween Bunco Night and I thought “what can I pull together that’s easy for a blind girl?” Hmmmm…I GOT IT!  I called my best girlfriends and told them about it. I was hoping they would do it with me. There was no hesitation…they were both in!

We wore all black, threw on ears, sunglasses, whiskers, and rocked our white canes!!  THREE BLIND MICE! Fantastic! right?!?  So, as blind mice might do, we got lost on the way over to the party. My sweet sighted girlfriends couldn’t recognize any of the streets we were driving on, and of course, I was no help in this hot mouse mess! By the time we got there, we had to park a couple blocks away. We strolled down the middle of the street, with canes in hand, yelling at each other about how late we were and that one of us should’ve known how to get there!! We must have looked like three crazy bitches wielding white weapons to anyone who saw us! Seriously!  Anyway…when we walked into the party, our friends went nuts! Everybody erupted with screams, shrieks and laughter! WE WERE A HIT! Yep…Fantastic! Just like I said!

Three Blind Mice!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that my friends, Robin and Ursula, were willing to do this with me! I can count on them for anything. If you can’t count on your friends to be crazy blind mice with you, then WHO can you count on?

Happy Halloween Friends!

  3. When I got the call from Maria Sunday evening…I had already been thinking what am I going to dress up as…when she said she had an idea and Ursula had to be a part of it…I knew what she was going to say…
    When I told friends at work (they know the Maria story) they looked at me like I was crazy…I had to quickly tell them it was Maria’s idea. and about getting lost on the way to Diane’s house…first, we started out with a few cocktails over at my house. And everyone gets lost…sight or no sight. but true Maria did get us back on track.
