I can’t believe it. Summer is almost over, and Halloween is just around the corner. This will be my fifth Halloween as Southwest’s CEO, and little did I know what kind of impact my costumes would have. In 2004, I portrayed mega-rock star, Gene Simmons of KISS,
and the year after that, I rode the range as Wild Bill Hickok.
In 2006, I took on a nautical air as that rascally Captain Jack Sparrow,
and last year I was the demure Edna Turnblad from Hairspray.
My Halloween Elves are ready to get the 2008 “Gary” set up, and I need suggestions about who (or what) I should portray for Halloween. It would be really nice if your suggestion doesn’t involve shortterm (and especially longterm!) body modifications like shaving my legs, although I will sacrifice for art—within reason.
So be creative and leave your suggestion, and it’s okay to color outside the lines—the good folks at Spirit Halloween stores will make your idea come to life.
