Then I dig out my latex shirt from my wild days in Soho, England. I had coated it with preservative so it's still black, shiny and stretchy. It still fits if I don't breathe too much.
Then comes the rain coat and hat I bought from a retired New England Sea captain. Suddenly I'm a cheerfully colored banana.
I pull on big rubber pot scrubber gloves and duct tape that to the sleeves sealing up everything.
Last comes the full welders mask. Smells musty and there's a Darth Vader echo going on, but it is necessary.
Then I ask kittenkatt "How did your date go?"
Laugh deary, it's the best thing.
