Slack Slacky McSlackerson. Just call me that. I promise the end of my October Photography challenge is coming to a blogpost near you soon. In the meantime, I have other photos to share with you. They’re Halloween photos from my childhood and I decided to post them the 2 days after Halloween because I wanted all the other Halloween stuff out of your Readers so I’d be the only one and could be like SURPRISE! HALLOWEEN STUFF AGAIN! STOP CHRISTMAS SHOPPING ALREADY! Not really. I just forgot I had them, but now I will share them with you, in spite of my total non-Halloween here in CR. No costumes. No candy. No fun.
Me, at age ten, at a Girlscout fall outing. So proud that this is, to my knowledge, the only photo of someone holding my hair back for any reason. Also, I’ve been puke free since like 2nd grade and I am a classy girl, so a picture like that of me wouldn’t exist anyway, but I wanted to brag about my lack of vomit so I added this sentence.
A year later, my friends were like, we’re all gonna be army girls! (I have no idea who the grim reaper is, btw. Or the girl next to him for that matter, actually). And I was like…yeah, no, I’m gonna be a diva and be Cleopatra. I’m pretty sure I made them carry me at some point, because I was royalty and they were army people, so clearly…our historical accuracy was great. And I sound like a brat, but I totally wasn’t. At least not in that way. More in the way that I would walk up behind my brother while he was playing video games and slap him in the back of the head and then run for my life.
Two years later I decided to be something “scary” and just wear all black everything. I wore the same thing the year before, and the same thing the year after. My costume kept getting progressively shorter and I got taller. Oooh girl.
Those are all the childhood photos I have digitally of Halloween. Maybe I’ll illustrate more blog posts with photos of me as a small child. You’d like that I bet.
One more thing. This year, since I couldn’t be there, my BFF J dressed up like me for Halloween (people already confuse us for each other, so it wasn’t too hard).
I think she did a pretty good job. So anyway. October Photography Challenge photos coming, and yet another traumatic something that happened to me story coming as well.
