It's that time of the year again.
The leaves are falling, the drinks are pumpkin-spiced and Christine from HR is having everyone over for a "Hallowork party." Sigh. This again.
It's not that you're against Halloween, but Christine is the type of person who says "work hard, play hard," and you know she's going to play Bruno Mars and hand out Peep-flavored jello shots. That's not exactly your cup of cider.
I have a tip for you, however: Just dive into Halloween.
Stop saying you're too old and just cave in now. You'll save yourself some trouble, and you can wear an awesome/topical sports costume that you'll ruin with alcohol.
If you're having trouble deciding on a costume, that's fine. Here are a number of suggestions for some ridiculous sports-themed Halloween costumes. Have a happy and safe one, and play some "Monster Mash" for me.
