First of all, Happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate!
Here is our lineup this year: Spider-Man, Symbiote Spider-Man, elf and wizard.
This is the first year I didn’t make their costumes. (No, the desire to be the dung beetle didn’t stick, sadly.) One day we wandered into a costume shop and they picked them out. It was so easy! Why didn’t anyone tell me?
Halloween & Being Good, Protective Parents was my big Halloween post last year and I pretty much covered everything I could say about this year because again, it hasn’t happened yet. I also wrote and illustrated this Halloween Tidbit after last year.
So go read those and we’ll all just pretend I stayed up late last night writing them.
I was actually up late experimenting with candy corn which is just as important. My experiment involved seeing how many of them I could fit into my mouth at one time. I tried* but failed to beat the current record holder who can fit 70. <– that is a boring video, I’ll spoiler it for you: she puts 70 candy corns into her mouth.
*I’m joking. I’m not really that motivated. I did eat some though.
Apologies to anyone who is offended by candy corn consumption. Or licensed character Halloween costumes. Or sarcasm.
Also, bummed for the kids that have another cancelled Halloween. Thanks Hurricane Sandy, for depriving precious children their chance to dress in weird outfits and obtain mass quantities of sugar. (But seriously, hope everyone is safe over there.)
