All Hallows Eve Eve

30 Oct

I have long disliked Hallowe’en. It is complicated, but let me just say  I still like to include the apostrophe and that the day AFTER Halloween can be hard for teachers. When I taught elementary school, we didn’t dress up – had pyjama day instead.

Middle school is a whole different kettle of fish. It is not as smelly as that implies, but we take Hallowe’en seriously. And I finally have a costume I am excited about.

I found this gem at Macy’s.

I already had the perfect teacup.

If you still can’t figure it out, maybe this photo will give you a better idea.

I’ll post a picture of me in full D.U. regalia tomorrow. I intend to channel her spirit as I teach. I hope the kids enjoy my Halloween hijinx.

      I might paste cat faces on my bassets. I will definitely mess with the kids more than a little. I am going to enjoy channelling her.

    I am not looking forward to tomorrow at all! LOL

    I applaud your commitment, and I look forward to the, um, penumbrage you’ll cast on Wednesday.
