“You’ve got to HAND it to me, am I right?”
I was dressed as a hand for Halloween.
It would be widely considered
the least creative costume of the past decade.
She wore a paper grocery bag and a tiara
trying to recreate some book from her childhood.
Later, a drunk girl with a face like the bottom of a bucket
asked us if we were doing a couple costume, if we were
“the act of bringing groceries in from the car.”
When people make guesses at my costume,
I always tell them they’re exactly right.
