This Halloween, I dressed up as an Army captain to teach class. Would’ve been exciting if I hadn’t done the same thing every Friday (and Monday and Wednesday).
This evening, though, I did pull the fur and leather out of the attic in order to dress up as a good ol’ fashioned barbarian to take the knight-garbed Hobbit out for his festivities. The cadets in one of the battalions (go 4th!) put together a wee Halloween Carnival for the kiddos, and we had a blast. I’m not sure if the cadets were more amused by the little tikes in costume (mine was the cutest!) or the English professor wielding a battle-axe*, but good times were had by all regardless.
*What? You think I’d do a barbarian costume half-assed? Of course I took an axe!
