I was talking to the kids about halloween today, asking them if they could be whatever they wanted, regardless of my sewing prowess (or lack thereof), what they would be. Of course, they wanted to be some Pokemon crapola...
but that got me to thinking....
What did I want to be as a kid?
Mostly I thought about what my friends had been. The main ones I can remember are hookers and babies. Both of these are almost equally disturbing, although hookers slightly winning.
I'm fairly sure I had no idea what a hooker did, but I remember plenty of friends being that, even in the heart of happy valley.
I really encourage my kids to look to literature, possibly movies and try to be the heros of the event. I like to see imagination at halloween, for what better thing is there to celebrate?
Making a theme CD for our costumes right now.
Ok, and is there no spell check in this fancy new editor? I fear that is something my readers will miss....
