Not too many costumes today because almost everyone I work with is LAME and did not dress up. I did. I got mad compliments. Point: If you don’t dress up you don’t get any compliments.
But this post isn’t about my costume because my costume was exactly the same as my costume last year (minus one cat). Rather I wanted to draw attention to what I think might be the best costume I saw this year, and I did watch the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade on TV so I saw a lot of costumes.
Anyway, I was walking to work when I saw a man on the corner walking toward me. He was wearing a brown suit with a shirt and tie. He also had thick-framed glasses. That’s not the best part. As we got closer I noticed that his shirt was open and his tie loosened. Underneath his shirt he had a Superman costume. I walked past Clark Kent (and not the moron Clark Kent from TV’s Smallville either, no this guy could have been the real deal). My favorite part was that the Superhero costume looked legit and the suit did too, like not a store-bought costume. So, if the Clark Kent I saw on Eighth Avenue at around 1:30 PM ever sees this, know that your costume was pretty cool. Unless you really were Clark Kent, then I just hope the heroics you were on your way to worked out.
