Boo!

I took my daughter trick-or-treating with her half-sister and her half-sister's father yesterday (can you follow that? Did that make sense?). Last year, I picked a costume to match up with my daughter. She was the statue of liberty and I was Uncle Sam. This year, however, my daughter decided to be a vampire, and, due to the hectic events of the past week, I had no time to rent or buy a costume. After finally setting foot in my house for the first time in nearly a week, I tried to think of some last minute costume ideas. Here's what I came up with:

  • Wearing a sandwich board that says "HTTP 404: Costume not found" 
  • Putting a bunch of quarters in a bag and carrying a hammer. This would make me a quarter pounder. 
  • Taking all the cigarette butts that are littering my backyard and attaching them to an old baseball cap. This would make me a butt-head. 
  • Wearing my lab coat and stethoscope along with my pig-face mask and calling myself "Dr. Pigface". This went over fairly well at GenCon 2010
  • Walking around in my Samuel Adams shirt and cap along with an empty Samuel Adams glass and an empty bottle of Octoberfest and passing myself off as a man in need of a beer.
In the end, I didn't go with any of the above as time was way too short and the kids were having a good enough time even without their fathers participating in the costume-themed fun.
