Hawklad, does the costume fit?

Don’t know yet Dad!”

I’m waiting for Jason to appear with his chainsaw.

“You might have to wait a while. It’s a tight fit.”

How tight.

Well the trousers are now shorts that don’t get over my knees. The top won’t even get over my head. The mask is more like an eye patch and the strap isn’t long enough to wrap round my head. But at least the plastic chainsaw fits in my hand but it’s kind of like a Swiss Army knife now.”

Oh. That’s your fault for growing so much in a year. It kind of fit last year.

No it didn’t, it was too small last year. Dad does your costume fit. But it’s not even a Halloween one?”

Yes it is number one son. It’s a ghoul.

Dad it isn’t a ghoul. It’s Dr Who Cyberman mask which is supposed to fit a toddler and a black bin liner with holes cut in it.”

It’s a fantastic ghoul costume which I grant you is a little tight.

Fantastic is not the word I would use. How tight

Erm the mask doesn’t even cover my nose and my bum has ripped a hole in the bag. Apart from that it’s good to go.

Shall we give the costumes a miss this year?”

Good idea Hawklad what shall we replace them with?

More chocolate.”

Perfect. But with all those calories I certainly won’t get into next years costume.

Dad who said you were getting the chocolate……”

  1. I have two costumes… Batman and Eeyore. I’m telling you, those onesie pajamas are the way to go. Very comfortable and they fit all six feet of me. The Batman is even a little long in the legs which is unheard of for me. And the best part is, they’re pajamas!

    I think you and Hawklad should get some. πŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ

    1. I had to look that word up, for I was pronouncing it “Touch” and thinking that’s weird. 🀨 When I saw it explained I thought of course it is. {{{giggles}}} There was a light bulb of recognition. Just like the time I pronounced a word “Boor~goy~S” because I was self teaching myself sociology. The other person looked at me gone out, but when they realised I was saying bourgeoisie and told me, there was giggles all round. πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜„

      1. Yes or stressed and having to write what someone is dictating to us, those important messages you feel obliged to get correct spelling for and all our best efforts go flying out the freakin’ window and what are we left with: Getting salty, innit!

  2. Ask my kids and they might just say I always dress as a witch in whatever I wear.
    For I love to walk the forest at any time of year and like the quote: “β€œA witch ought never to be frightened in the darkest forest, Granny Weatherwax had once told her, because she should be sure in her soul that the most terrifying thing in the forest was her.” β€” Wintersmith, by Terry Pratchett.

      1. Yes, now that kind of luggage would be so helpful, well hopefully. Not that you could sit on it in the train station while waiting, for I am sure it wouldn’t allow it (unlike normal luggage).

  3. I was going to do a Dia de los Muertos kinda thing this year but now I’m gonna be “crazy cat lady not giving out full size candy bars, or even opening the door, for the first time in 25+ yrs while she worries about her feral & stray cats, esp the black ones, all night.”
