Choose a Costume For Me, Who or What Shall I Be
Who shall I be?
The last time I was in a costume; a hippie, was as creative as I could be
A dying dear friend wanted us to do it and that was enough reason for me!
Since then, I've had no desire, but my Granddaughter is so into it
I'd do it for her if I could find the right costume, it would have to be the right fit
She is always asking, Gramma what are you going to be?
I never have an answer, for it’s something which no longer interests me
I love watching the kids, giving out candy, trying to figure out who or what they are
but as far as putting on a costume, I no longer take it quite that far
She was devastated a couple years back; she was Anna, Elsa is who I was to be
I didn’t take it seriously and a sad and disappointed little face, awaited me
She is asking me again this year....guess she'll never give up on me
So I'm asking all of you, keep in mind, I'm a grandmother, who should I be?
Making it official
I don't want to be a creepy creep
No real interest in Little Bo Peep
A little past my prime to be the French maid
and I don't wish to make anyone laugh or to be afraid.....
Believe it or not, the hippie costume still fits me
However, when my granddaughter asks, who are you supposed to be?
Don't think she'll understand, I can see her confused little expression now
She'll wrinkle up her nose and lift up her brow
Making it official, should I do it, if so, who or what shall I be?
Open for suggestions, promise to post pictures after, so the suggestion winner, will see
Choose my costume for me
Who or what shall I be, open for suggestions...
Happy Halloween everyone
Now this is going to be fun!

Update: I did it, followed through. My granddaughter was surprised and giddy with excitement (even my young grandsons thought me kinda 'cool'! :))
