No, I’m not secretly a man. I’m going to actually DRESS UP for Halloween this year. Get it? Dress up… Drag? Too far? Okay.
Anyway, our young adult classes at church are getting together for a mystery dinner next weekend, which I’ve never actually participated in, but I’ve heard they’re such a blast. We were all assigned costumes that are to remain a secret until that night, where we’ll all show up in character. It sounds downright silly, but I think that’s the point of it all.
I was slightly horrified when I received my costume assignment on a slip of paper in the mail. I have just a few days to scour thrift stores and possibly my great-grandma’s closet so I can transform into this classy, yet terrifying lady:
My question for all of you is this…
Should I go for the traditional, umbrella-flying Mary?
Or the gussied-up, horse race Mary?
And if you think THAT’S bad, wait until you see who Justin has to be. I’ll give you a hint: it involves a hat and tights.
