This year for Halloween, we wanted to be comfortable, warm, and not needing to wipe an excess paint from our faces that evening [unlike last year]. Billy and I’s friend Balsley threw out the last minute idea that we should be the characters from one of my favorite childhood movies, The Three Ninjas. My family owned this on VHS – which we watched repeatedly. When I think about this movie, I think about when Diddy, Buddy and I riding in the back of my mom’s suburban on the way to Hilton Head. As you can guess, once Balsley revealed such a brilliant costume choice – we went immediately to Walmart where we found the sweatsuits and the next day, I went to Michaels and bought white masks to replicate the above masks. Rocky, Colt, and Tum-Tum.
