So, I was a little harsh on Target for their noticably “tarty to the party” Halloween display but they actually came through quite well. I managed to check all the reviewable items off the list and above all, I did so in a chicken suit. I am not lying.
To be honest, the suit was not made for a 6 foot fellow but rather a 5’10” one so I could not completely lift my head or see passed the beak. But that has never stopped me before. I am not sure on the legs though.
And wouldn’t you know it? I just got a kitten and now we can have matching costumes this year! Wait a minute. I think I just made a statement about the cat and I having matching costumes. What the hell is wrong with me? I need to get out more.
Yeah, I didn’t think she would have gone for it anyway.
Ok seriously! You HAVE to come here Trick-orTreating with me! Anyone who is willing to go to Target dressed like that is all right with me! LOL
It’s a date, Trish! Just need to get Swazy leash trained.
Did random stranger take your picture or do you have a friend that goes out in public with you like that? Bee costume just edges out chicken costume though. Nothing will quite compare.
Believe it or not I have a friend that will not run away from me when I shop as a chicken. That’s a good friend.
They didn’t have a bee costume this year. 😦
Mine did!! I saw the bee costume and thought of you!! ha
Hey Will- I wanted to introduce myself to you. My name is Brian I am from upstate New York, been NYPD for 10 years, married 1 daughter, blah blah blah…I read your blog from start to finish and in my humble opinion, I think you should write a book. Your blog is the funniest I have ever read. You have great classic one liners and it seems like any situation you are in, hilarity ensues or at least you write it that way.
You have inspired me to loose weight. I have what the doctors say is a little bit of a weight problem. (think Chris Farley). I was in shape, but after 9/11 and loosing some of my lung capacity (you are familiar) plus sleep apnea, high blood pressure, (thank you Al-Queda) swimming and running are just not in the cards for me….-or so I thought until I read your post where you just ran out the front door until you were coughing up blood, damage to your feet and was miles from home. After I read that, I donned my fat guy shorts and ran around my neighbors driveway.The driveway is about 1/4 mile long and I ran around 4 times for one mile. Not alot, but it is a start. I wanted to say Thank -You very much, you may not know it, but your writing is inspirational. You and the Blazeman. I hope you keep posting. Looking forward to your new adventures. Hopefully someday when you have a child of your own, I can return the favor and offer you any advice you may need. Especially if you have a daughter. I hope you stop by my blog, I just vacuumed, and the tea is on.
Wow, I don’t know what to say. I am really flattered you have enjoyed the blog. That means a lot coming from a hero in the NYPD. Seriously, you guys are brave and amazing.
Good job on the run! It is inspiring to me to hear someone over coming life’s obstacles in such a way. For you future fitness goals my I suggest Stew Smith? He specializes in tons of great fitness plans and he speaks our language. I had the privilege of training and getting his certificate. His link is over at Macabre Fitness
Thanks for coming by. I will blogrole you so we can all see how you are coming along.
Thanks for blog rolling me. I did the same over at my little shack of a blog. Thanks for the Stew Smith link..I will check it out. Be sure to check my blog often for weight loss updates, and thank again for the inspiration.
Hah! I saw that chicken costume the other day, right next to a gorilla costume I was very tempted to take home.
And on the cat hats, we bought our cat an Elephant one last year, and he wouldn’t even wear it.
Yeah, I would love to meet a cat that would be fine wearing a cat hat or one of those cat ties.
HAHA! This blog is one of the reasons I get up in the morning. And it comes complete with pictures of your shenanigans too, who could ask for anything more?
Awww. Thanks Blue! You stuff is priceless. I need to comment more on other blogs. You seriously crack me up.
I own that Chicken Cat Hat.
It’s great- if I want Racecar to stay COMPLETELY STILL, I put the hat on.
I think my lap slut Cootie doesn’t mind it, though.
If it constitutes me even TOUCHING him, he’s all over it like white on rice.
Dahlia? I look at her cross-eyed and she runs, nevermind whipping out the Chicken Hat.
As for my Dog…. He loves wearing stuff. just this pastw eekend I got him Doggles and he’s takign to them pretty well.
Cash Wearing Clothes should be a Blog Post!
Target + Chicken suit = OUSTANDING!
I agree with Brian. You really need to write a book, Will.
You are so many layers of funny it’s ridiculous.
Your lolcat skillz need improvement, but that is still a pretty damn adorable kitten! 🙂
PS… Ughh, You got a cat??
I think it is disturbingly cute that you want to have a matching costume as your kitty.
