As a kid, you probably dreamed of what you wanted to be when you grew up. Most every kid does, but did that dream come true?
A unique twist on that childhood dream is to dress up as what you hoped to be. Maybe you dreamed of being a professional baseball player, but you ended up taking over your dad's septic business instead, or perhaps you wanted to be a pilot, but you became a nurse.
While there is nothing wrong with whatever it is you do (or did) for a living, it just might not have been what you dreamed of as a child. Pull from those long-ago memories of childhood. What did you want to do? Rescue gorillas in the rainforest, track the dolphins with Jacque Cousteau, or did you just want to stay home and have a dozen children?
Whatever it was, dress the part, even if it is for just one night.
