Halloween Costumes

This Halloween, I’ve been told that my costume ‘has to be scary’. Seeing that I can’t remember the last time that the thought of a pallid, raven-haired man going for my jugular kept me awake at night, I’ve written a shortlist of genuinely scary costumes...

Early-onset Alzheimer’s
The threat of eviction
Coming across as pretentious
Losing your glasses and mistaking paint thinner for white wine
The concept that the release of the Truman show was actually an elaborate double-bluff, all your friends and colleagues are actors, and your life is being televised for the amusement of others.
Dying alone.
