My Halloween costume ideas peaked in bible college



Finding a faux father was the biggest challenge in putting this costume together. (Turned out most guys at my school didn't want to dress up as the guy who pretend-knocked me up. Weird.) Luckily my friend Jacob said yes. He ironed the logo on that shirt and bought orange TicTacs. I couldn't have asked for a more committed costume partner. 

Lots of people asked to touch my belly, carefully crafted by carbs, lactose and a thick scarf molded under a fitted tank top. Others just went for it. 

I lingered between loving the attention and grappling with the urge to run away and hide from all the happy hands. Pregnant women aren't kidding: Baby bumps are tactile magnets. Even the fake ones.
