The Halloween I Almost Shot Someone {#FTSF}

Home / Fun / The Halloween I Almost Shot Someone {#FTSF}

Halloween began just like most others. I had class and I still haven’t determined what I was going to wear that night. Two major differences were that I was going to the party with “someone” and, well, I was going to a Halloween party. I didn’t often do that when I was younger, including college. As the day went by, I realized that my friend also did not have a costume either.

So, we raided my closet because I’m just that lazy and cheap.  I know what you’re thinking, I’ve got a lot of cool costumes.

That’s was totally not the case.

FTSF Halloween 2014I had realized that I had an old cheerleader outfit packed away in the back of my closet. Yes, I was once a cheerleader! And I loved it. I didn’t even need a megaphone! Wait, is that a good thing?

My friend, well, was a guy. I’m not a small girl, and well, he wasn’t a small guy. His build was… eh-hem… nice enough to fit my curvier me.

So, we stuffed a bra, found a skirt, pulled out a wig and dressed him. He looked great and completely unrecognizable… except he was a six foot two inch tall, 240 pound black man, dressed as a woman. We just couldn’t get him into a pair shoes. I have big feet, but not THAT big.

We arrived at the party after a pretty nice makeup job by yours truly and everyone loved his costume… no one noticed me at all.

Then, one of our friends dressed as Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. When I say costume perfection, it was costume perfection.

I have a slight fascination with guns, so my first inclination was to touch the gun. She didn’t have a problem with me picking it up and taking a look.

Once I picked it up, I realized it was no ordinary gun ~ so I asked her “is this a real gun?” Her response, “no”. I asked again because this gun had some heft, some weight, this did not feel like a toy gun, even a real-life looking toy gun. She again said “no”.

In my slightly inebriated state, I began to point the gun at people. I wasn’t crazy enough to put my finger on the trigger because something still didn’t feel right.

Until about a minute later, she realized what I was doing and yelled, “DON’T DO THAT! YOU COULD SERIOUSLY HURT SOMEONE!”

Of course, I put it down immediately. She clarified that the “non-gun” was actually a very sophisticated BB gun.

I wish she would’ve said something earlier. I’m very thankful that I had enough state of mind NOT to put my finger on the trigger.

Tell me your Halloween story, since this is a part of Finish the Sentence Friday, which this week is…

One Halloween I…
