My next-door neighbor, Peg, and I are throwing a party next month. We are calling it a Midsummer's Nightmare, and you have to come dressed as your biggest fear. It can be your current fear or whatever you were afraid of in your childhood.
You know I am afraid of everything. I don't know how to dress for my own party!
Ironically enough, there's my agoraphobia. So naturally I'm having a party. I could go dressed as that.
Of course, then there's my hypochondria.
So I could dress as a '70s pamphlet image of hypochondria.
I am also particularly horrified of spiders.
Oh! Oh! What about my huge fear of barfing?!
Do you have any idea how often, when I run into people I haven't seen in years, I get asked, "Have you barfed yet?" The answer is still no. Not since October of 1982. Thanks for asking. Could we keep it at October 1982? Thanks.
What I'm thinking is maybe I need to do a change of wardrobe, like Diana Ross or something, several times in the night. I mean, I hate to highlight one fear and ignore the others. They've all brought me such hours of obsessing.
What say you? And what would you dress as if you got invited to this exclusive affair?
P.S. Marvin is dressing as me.
