Today I dressed up as a librarian.
Not a sexy librarian.
(I don’t do sexy Halloween costumes.)
When I was a freshman in college, I set out to wear the LEAST sexy costume I could think of because I was sick of seeing skanky Halloween costumes everywhere. I went out as a librarian that year. (Disclaimer: I don’t think ALL librarians are unsexy.) Anyways, I went out dressed in the best frumpy librarian outfit I had, but at that point I was naive enough to never have heard of the “naughty librarian” concept. I went out with my BFF, who was dressed as a bondage goth boy on a leash…..and he needed someone to hold his leash, so I did. Because I’m a good BFF. However, after one zillion catcalls and way too many REALLY forward comments about how naughty I was, I finally had to ask what it was all about. This is when I learned about the “naughty librarian” phenomenon. Lesson learned: if you are dressed as a strict librarian but you are holding the leash of a bondage goth boy, your costume DEFINITELY tips over into the sexual category. My bad.
Today I went sans-leash and I think I looked more haughty and less naughty.
