While watching The Addams Family film, and possibly starving myself in the process, a friend from school told me I'd "make a great Wednesday". I pondered upon it for a while - 3 seconds approximately - but discarded the impossible compliment and decided she was just being naïve and unorthodoxly kind. However, I then realised, I would make for a brilliant Wednesday Addams - of a darker shade of course, and with less interesting features. Besides that, I figure I have her personality in the bag - I'm generally sarcastically morbid and frank anyhow. Plus, with all the new black in my closet I can put together one of her simple grunge outfits - très chic. Maybe I'll even bring along a bottle of poison.
Now that I've made the extremely trying decision of what to be for Halloween, if I ever get invited anywhere, a huge burden has been lifted off of my shoulders and I can focus on something else equally stressful, like deciding which groomer to send my puppy to...
P.S. Dear Jamaica: care more about Halloween, so I'll have a surplus of events to choose from because I won't be attending any tweenage parties.
P.P.S. Thanks friend, for your participation in my life-changing realisation of how similar I am to Wednesday Addams.
