talking halloween costumes blues

Can you believe it is October already? No joke, this year has just flown by. Sure, once you get as old as me, they all seem to just fly by. Itís fall already, the leaves are changing colors, and before you know it, itíll be Halloween.

When I was younger, I used to love Halloween. My mom would make my costumes every year. They were always these elaborate costumes, intricate pirate or vampire bat costumes, when all I would have been happy to wear an guitar and some ripped jeans like one of my heroes in Kiss, Metallica or Anthrax.

The last couple years I havenít quite put that much thought or effort into my costumes. Itís kind of lame. I didnít dress up at all last year, but the year before I went as a cowboy. Before that I went as Luke Skywalker. And the year before that I went as a heroin addict. All my costumes in the last couple years thrown together at the last minute with things I just happened to have lying around the house, like a syringes and a pair of cowboy boots.

Yes, Iím from New York City and I own a pair of cowboy boots, donít give me that look.

Anyway, in an effort to give myself something to look forward to in life, Iíve started thinking about how to dress for Halloween. Iíve already begun my research, and boy was I surprised to learn what the hottest costume of the year is. No joke, the hottest Halloween costume isnít going to be some kiddy hero like Harry Potter or Bert and/or Ernie. Believe it or not, Osama bin Laden is the hot costume this year. Osama bin Laden masks are flying off store shelves like a B2 bomber on its way to Afganistan.

Personally, I wouldnít recommend wearing an Osama mask outside of Afghanistan, Somalia, Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Egypt, certain Palestinian neighborhoods in Israel, or Taliban party meetings. Not to mention, the Osama bin Laden Halloween mask is tough to find because it is in such high demand.

Unless you are willing to wage war on your fellow shoppers for that last costume on the shelf, youíll have to find someone else to dress up as this year. We suggest you find another costume this year, maybe Darth Maul, Austin Powers, or that touristguy.
