Herb was sitting at Doris’ dressing table when she entered their bedroom.
“What are you doing?” she asked her husband.
“Pass me that rainbow wig over there, and my brush?”
“I’m trying out my Halloween costume for the community center costume party,” he explained. “I’ll need to borrow one of your fancy dresses. I think I can squeeze into one.”
“Indeed not,” Doris said. “What’s the matter with you?”
“I thought for one night it would be fun to pretend to be female.”
