1. What is the most clever Halloween costume someone you know has worn (that you wish you'd have come up with yourself)?
When my daughter was around ten, she put together a costume that featured her head being served up on a plate as the main dish. She had it all--table, tablecloth, placemat, utensils, napkin. I believe she even made construction paper "lettuce" to surround her head as garnish. It was somewhat awkward to trick or treat in but she managed. I thought it was very creative and clever. Sixteen years later, I still use those adjectives to describe my daughter.
2. You're invited to a Halloween party that begins in one hour. You have to make a costume only from what is already in your house. So how would you dress up?
I'd grab a plastic laundry basket and cut a hole in the bottom big enough to fit around my waist. I'd then put in an assortment of clean clothes around myself in the basket and add a box or bottle of laundry detergent and/or an empty bottle of bleach, box of fabric softener, etc. For an added touch, I'd drape a provocative article of clothing over the side. Voila! I'm a basket of dirty laundry.
I've got to give credit to my husband for this idea. Many years ago, he had to scramble and pull together a costume just before leaving for work. This is what he came up with and he returned home that evening with a bottle of wine he'd won as a prize.
3. What is the amount of the last check you wrote?
4. How many keys are on your keyring, and are there any that you've forgotten that you even had?
I have four keys on my keyring; all accounted for and none forgotten.
5. Who was the last musical performer you saw live in concert, and was it worth the admission price?
The last musical performer I saw was Ray Charles. The ticket price was definitely worth the show and evening. We went with several other couples, rented a limosine and made quite a night of it.
6. READER'S CHOICE QUESTION #29 from DaBabysBack: What is your favorite day of the week and why?
My favorite day of the week is Monday. This is one of my days off from work. My son goes to school, my husband goes to work and I do as much or as little as I like depending upon how I feel.
