What you should do if you dress as the TSA for Halloween: Taste-test all of the treats brought in for the party, empty your fellow partygoers purses and bags dutifully throwing away any expensive hand creams or cosmetics, while pocketing any electronics or sparkly trinkets for yourself. Alternatively, if you aren’t really in the party mood, you can just show up and commandeer a comfy spot on your host’s couch and snooze the evening away.
