So two days ago an e mail was circulated around the firm and has caught some attention. Usually I do like to dress up for Halloween, but I really was not planning on it this year, seeing as how it falls on a Monday, and I didn’t think our firm culture allowed it. However, since this e mail, sent by some girl in HR, I think, everyone is talking about what their costume will be.
In the past I have always leaned towards “funny” instead of “scary”. In my 1L year in law school I was Contracts Jesus (quotes from the Contracts law book instead of the bible, ha…ha…). Another year I did “Dick-in-a-box”, Justin Timberlake’s character from his SNL skit. I don’t think those ideas would be appropriate here. My next go-to-costume was Wilfred, from the show “Wilfred” (amazing show in any case). However, I am not sure how my managing partner would take me sitting there in a dog costume. Not to mention the Q3 board meeting is on Nov. 2nd, so tensions are slightly more tense.
Everyone else is doing the typical, Vampire, Nurse or Ghost thing. Anyone have any ideas or tips?
