Honey Boo Boo Costume?

It’s true. I listen more to what others tell me but I have a real issue listening to myself. It doesn’t mean I do what others tell me to do. I just listen better. So, with some incredible insight given to me by an amazing fellow blogger, Confused  & Bewildered, I could be Captain Caveman for Halloween!  He’s the one on the left.

Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels.

OK. I am one of those people who seems to know all the answers. Just ask my husband. He says I’m a Know-It-All. I’ve even been a trivia phone helper. Do you know where the expression “OK” came from? I do. Why do I know it all? I don’t know but I think it has something to do with having the last word, whether I get to it or not.

If I know all the answers, or if I need (I wanted to say should, but I’ve got that pact to not should on myself if I can help it, and I can.) the answer to those pressing life questions that keep me unhealthy. Like, ” What can I be for Halloween?”

The adult celebration was last night here in Victoria, where the city and surrounding areas were loaded with bars, pubs, homes and streets full of costumed adults playing out their fantasies with lowered inhibitions and visions of out right fun! I haven’t heard any bad police reports this morning so It seems all went very well, and judging from the sound of fireworks in my neighbourhood, the fire depart did OK, too.

So, how can I listen to myself and act in truth? I ate a handful of Halloween Kisses (MMMmmmm) last night and today I have a sugar hangover. I should have gone whole hog and had all the rum and diet coke, too. Yes, I should on myself! So what?  Tee hee hee. Hmmm, it feels better already to be truthful.

Is dressing up this Halloween, a cry for escape from my present day problems? Of course it is! I hate dieting. I hate being “Morbidly Obese”. I hate being handicapped. I hate being a good talker but a bad doer. OK, I’m coming off as a hater today, but it is self-hate so I feel a little better. I hate being the one who is to blame. I do like the word “escape”. What the hell do I have to escape from? Nothing. I choose to be who I am and what I do. I have a killer sense of humour and a bit’o’brains to enjoy the amazing life I have been blessed with. So, now that I’m sitting and listening to my inner voice (see horoscope above) I have finally decided on what – I mean WHO I will be for Halloween. I will be Honey Boo Boo!
