|1982 - My Best Tootsie Impersonation|
Last century when Rhonda was just emerging, Halloween was the most important day of the year. The whole month of October would be used as an excuse to shop, request makeup consultations, and plan. I emerged in the time when the movie Tootsie was still fresh in everyone's mind, so I told people that my costume was "Dorothy" as in, Tootsie.
See my original post on "Be Something Else Day".
Worked for me; although I suspect no one was fooled. I have written up my first outing and it was less than spectacular - Much trepidation, perspiration and finally a late arrival at a restaurant's costume party. By the time I got up enough nerve to leave my car, the "costume walk" was long past. Sitting at the bar I felt the need to justify why I was dresses as I was; like an explanation was needed? The bartender's comment, after my long dissertation, "I am sure that this will not be the last". No truer statement was ever said.

So on this Halloween 2019, I know that many of my blog readers are motivated. Here is your opportunity if you are a newbie! Do not miss it. Be respectful. Be safe, (don't drink and drive). Be yourself.
However, most important, do not wait another year to "Escape" - Opportunities are everywhere.
Alternative: Put a copy of "Tootsie" in the VCR and laugh like it is 1982. What no VCR? Then use the Blue-Ray version. It is a true classic.
