Halloween, Second Night

Mandy was still in town.  We didn't get together, which, from reading her blog, turned out to be a great thing for her .

My good friend Sharon was available and not really loving her options for dress-up, which was a great thing for me, because we all went out to dinner together, dressed but not in costume.  Sharon, like many of us, has to work around her family in order to get a day out.  I've met her wife; she is very nice, and good about herding the kids so Sharon can see daylight regularly.

At the restaurant, about a third of the patrons and all of the staff were in costume.

I didn't worry much about being read, although next year I think I'll wear perhaps my Renaissance dress and be out as a "woman in a costume" instead of being out as a woman.

We spoke to the waitress (who wore a sheet and was a ghost at first but later she gave up the ghost and she had an "Alice in Wonderland" dress underneath.  I asked her what was under that and she said "that's it.  It's just my birthday suit" and I said "that's what I have on under this!"

So I was still in my normal-kidding mode, even as Meg, although I sometimes worry that banter might come off as flirting which might confuse the other party.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.

At the end of the evening, I was seeking out the waitress but didn't find her.  I wanted to tell her that it was so uplifting to see all of the people in costume that I was going to wear one next year.  Just to see what she says, of course.
