Leslie’s question this week for our Coffee Chat is: Today it is ZooZoo’s 5th birthday and she is having a costume party. If you were going to a Costume Ball (and since Halloween is days away), what costume would you wear? Hmmm, let me start with: Happy Birthday, ZooZoo! Hope you are having a fun day with lots of presents. And then, let’s go back in history to when I was your age. I didn’t go to any costume parties, unfortunately that just didn’t happen – for me – back then. However, a few years later, not too many later, I belonged to a swimming club and we had costume parties. Not for Halloween, because Halloween was / is not being celebrated in Germany, but for carnival or Mardi Gras, like in New Orleans, which is in February each year. We did not have the money to buy any fancy costumes, so we had to make do with what we or my older sisters had. And that mean two out of three times being dressed as a gypsy. Which meant colorful, funky clothing and make up and jewelry (fake one), too 🙂
Now, today, what would I want to be today, and if money were no – big – issue. Hmm, I actually like darker stuff. Maybe a Victorian dress, steampunk like? That would be fun! Or something with black leather, Zorro or Catwoman – arrrghhh – uh, speaking of, how about a pirate? I guess you get my picture. And sorry, not a princess, that just is not me. But from the pictures I saw of you, ZooZoo, you would be an awesome princess 🙂
And Kathy’s You’ll-shoot-your-eyes-out Song-ography song this week is “Secrets” by Mary Lambert. Never heard of it. Which is one of the things I like about Song-ography, ever so often you get to know new songs. So, off to YouTube and AZ Lyrics I went… and came back. Uh oh – this is going to be a difficult one. How to pack secrets, bi-polar disorder, overweight, mom jeans into a photo? Off to ponder a little more… A day later and I am still drawing a blank. So, I’ll go with this. Pure and simple.
‘I’m scared of the dark’
How could you not be? Under this kind of a moon… a blood moon…
