This was from a Halloween party my husband and I attended about 20 years ago. Every time I look at this photo I laugh because if there were ever two more opposite people…this was it. As opposite as we were, I didn’t realize till a few years later how appropriately we dressed. I had painted tattoos on both arms, a skull and cross bones on one and a long snake on the other, unfortunately, you can’t see them. I was hoping to show Melissa (ThatGirl) the painted tattoos. Oh well. Have fun with the photo. I sure do. :yikes: 😆 😆
Right in the middle of this party, our son called to say he needed us to come right away. He had called the police because a friend of his wouldn’t let him get his things out of their apartment. We went, of course, still in our Halloween attire. My husband didn’t have his mask on because he had to take it off to drive, but he still had on the long black robe. You should have seen the faces of the two policemen when we walked up. One kept looking me up and down, then asked me what group I was with. I said “Huh?”. Then he asked “Are you with the Angels?”. Again, I said “Huh?”. Finally, I remembered what I was wearing and the tats I’d painted on my arms and told him we were coming from a Halloween party. The cop just said “Hummmm, ok” but he really didn’t sound too convinced. He then asked who I was so I told him I’m the mom of the kid who called you. Now really, I don’t look that hard core but it wasn’t Halloween night so I guess the cop didn’t quite know what to think. Everything turned out ok and my son was able to get his stuff.
