Halloween

Scarecrows

“I was barely a month old and my parents my parents decided my first ‘outing’ should be a trip to the local mall. Not only were those mall scarecrows scarier than anything I’ve ever seen in a horror movie, I was doomed to live a life as a NY Jets fan.”

Stardate 1990

“This is a family photo from the 90s. We had coordinated Halloween costumes and my parents decided to get a professional photo taken of it for some reason. I’m in the yellow costume which I hated because I wanted blue or red. And yes, we watched a lot of Star Trek.”

Milk Of Magnesia

“I took pride in creating my own costumes. I thought this costume would generate a lot of laughs. In retrospect, constipation is more funny to 9 year-olds than the population as a whole.”

Baby Pumpkin

“This is my friend’s husband inside a pumpkin bounce house. Nothing better than a family outing where you see a live breech birth.”

Smoked

“My mom was always good at making Halloween costumes no matter what I wanted to be. She asked 8 year old me what I wanted to be so I said ‘a cigarette!” She got to work and made me a Marlboro, lit with ashes at the top. Needless to say, the school banned any cigarette related costumes the next year.”
