My Alter Ego

gail's alter egoDo you dress up for Halloween?  I haven’t in years, but I did dress up last week for bunco as my Avatar.  I fondly refer to her as “winky smile girl”.

My camera has the option to take 10 photos at a time on timer mode, so I had fun clowning around with some pictures.

winky smile girl collageThere were only two of us who dressed up at bunco.  The other girl (Christy)  was a sub, a friend of the hostess, whom I’ve never met before.  We were at the same table, so I figured she must be wondering who in the world I was suppose to be.  I whipped out my business card to show her why I was dressed this way. Guess what happened?  She was shocked, and excitedly told me “I read your blog!”   How fun is that!?  I’m sure I must have had a huge smile on my face.
