Happy Halloween! Last night I went to my old floor in my old dorm to attend a costume party even though I've been out of college for two years and didn't have a costume. I met several other alums I knew and talked with them for about fifteen minutes. Then I left. I actually was invited because there is one person I know still living there. But I feel like it's kind of sketchy for a 25-year-old to be attending campus parties so maybe I should stop doing that.
This particular floor was what is known as "special-interest housing," which basically means it's like a co-ed fraternity for people who share a common hobby; in this case, music. The Halloween Extravaganza is an annual event and the costumes can be quite . . . creative. But there was one year, when I was a sophomore, that not only was the line crossed, Jeremy kicked the envelope and kept running. I swear, I have never seen anything like this before and hope I never do again. Jeremy dressed as an aborted baby. Specifically, he went around in a diaper, covered with blood, and carrying a coathanger.
Jeremy was sort of known for being an occasional jerk, but this was some kind of Moral Event Horizon.
Soooo . . . I'm probably going to regret this, but have you ever seen a Halloween costume that could top this one? Or will Jeremy go down in infamy?
