    Poor Petey, just a bit too young to have read that classic novel.

    Well, Peter Otterloop, Jr., that goes to show you wearing just a “Boo” sign doesn’t work as a Halloween costume. Better luck next year.

    At least they didn’t think you were Boo-urns.

    That Alice – so practical! Plus she’ll have one HUGE lumpy of candy stuck together, making it even easier to eat than lots of separate lumps!

    It’s not completely out of character for him.

    Petey is only eight years old; there is no reason to expect him to have read the book! So he has no need to feel like a bonehead (anyway, he’s more a bigdome). And I like his earnest, minimalist costume; I think it’s very chic!

    Oldest son went to his friends’ party last year wearing a black t-shirt with the. Word “costume” in white on it. He was told not to wear it this year, so his brother suggested a shirt with the words “a more elaborate costume” on it.

    One year our son decided he was too old to trick-or-treat. At the last minute he changed his mind. With no time for real planning, he put on a button down shirt, a tie, nerd glasses, a pocket protector with a calculator, then made a sign: “Math Genius. Homework Help $1.” To his surprise, people loved it.

    How about a suit and tie and a briefcase? A Jehovah’s Witness! I always wanted to do that one…

    Scary, but I don’t answer the door.

    Having no reason to be frustrated has never stopped Petey from his usual angst.

    When I was around 10 I went as the Hunchback of Notre Dame. None of the kids voted for me as they didn’t know what or who that was. But the MC of the contest gave me an honorable mention.

    I once went to a Halloween party wearing a monk’s robe and Groucho glasses. I was a Marx brother.
    Another year, I reused the robe and added a mask and a bag with a $ on it. That was a Felonious Monk.
