I promise this is the last post I'll make this year about Halloween. I just have to get this off my chest.
What is with Halloween costumes becoming sexy and slutty? Seriously. The naughty devil girl or sexy maid or fill in the blank. We get a lot of teenagers and tweensters trick or treating. Some with costumes, some without. Or questionable. I ask them all, "What are you?" urging them to at least come up with something to earn their sugar. They are good sports and offer up something. This year we had a "gangsta" and I thought I don't know if I'd be flashin' colors in this neighborhood little one. But a few years back two preteen girls, with a lot of makeup and very little clothing, showed up at the door. When asked what they were, they replied in unison, "We're hos!" Awwww man. What the hell. So on that note, I leave you with this fantastic link to Jill Sobule's song about slutty costumes. Halloween is not an excuse to be a ho.
