. . . And Off With Her Head

Oh how little time there is this week, BUT, I think I can do moma’s losin it’s assignment.

The Prompts:

1. Put Shaggy (Scooby Doo's partner) and Batgirl in an elevator and write a 200 word scene.

2. Write about a time you hid from someone, or a time you disguised who you really were.

3. List 10 things worth saving then choose one of those things and write about it.

4. What did you do before we had the internet?

This is the story of Ann Marie Antoinette . . .

8 or 9 years ago a friend and I were both divorced and beginning a kids away weekend when she was invited by an old high school friend to a Halloween/costume party. Other than being only slightly acquainted with her friend, I knew no one else that was to be at this party. She had not seen many of these people since before her marriage.

We decided on that Saturday we would go. So we figured out how we were going to dress and met at her house before leaving. It was pretty interesting. I had “whited” out my face, wore a white long hair wig, a white sheet, and white shoes. I was not trying to be anything in particular, it just happened to be some items we had around. She chose to go solid black –black dress, black hose, black shoes, black cape of some sort and a black face.

We crashed the party and it was great! Being somewhere where no one knows you and watching people watch you was actually fun. I can still picture the puzzled expression of one of the women there trying to figure out if she did know

Only because we were in disquise – I do not like to draw attention to myself normally. My friend did not let anyone know who she was either. And even though her friend knew who we were, he did not give her away.

When people would ask our name, she would give her middle name “Ann” and I would give mine, “Merie” and then, together, would say “Antoinette.” I know how ridiculously childish. {{chuckling}} but it was fun!

Yes, I have no doubt they thought we were out of our mind . . . ummm maybe our head was off a little (HA!). We did not stay too very long, but we had a good time, just good old clean fun . . .

And there you have the story and Ann “Merie” Antoinett.

Love it so much. Your title, the friend and the story. Oh my gosh. Those are the times that you don't regret. Nothing bad, but definately sneaky and silly and so amusing. I love how you just decided to do it, and did. Thanks for the share. Now off with your head :0

We did have fun and we laughed so much after we left.

It was so out of character for me - HA- in two ways, crashing a party and the disquise.

Thank you all for stopping by!
