Costume calamities to avoid

Surely, the worst costume failure is to dress up as Lady Gaga for a Christmas ball. Imagine showing up in a meat dress among all those elegant people. It would be hilarious. But don't expect to be invited for a dance.

Invincible dads

When I was eight years old, I gave my dad a T-shirt with the Superman logo emblazoned across the chest for his birthday. The image of him wearing it as he mowed the lawn is forever etched in my mind.
