Yeah, so, I know you – my tens of readers – were aching to know what the MansTracys dressed up as for Halloween.
As you may recall, we are fans of the group costume, because we are the type of people you love to hate. Last year, we were all Star Trek. This year, we went with Calvin’s current favorite TV show,
“Breaking Bad” “Curious George.” Calvin was Curious George, mighty, mighty good man David was The Man in the Yellow Hat, and I was a banana.
By the way, I didn’t put The Kid in a SF Giants hat just because the World Series Champions happened to be having their celebratory parade on Halloween. Putting the monkey ears on a baseball hat was the only way I could get The Kid to wear the monkey ears. And yes, I know, I’m a genius.
Go ahead and laugh at me for being a banana. I’ll wait.
That banana costume is the best, so go ahead and laugh it up, fuzzball. First of all, I can wear whatever the hell I want underneath it. Second, it makes me look like I’m amazing dancer when I hit the dance floor. And finally, I can wear it again and again. Next year I will be this guy:
And maybe the year after that I’ll be this guy:
There’s always money in the banana costume.
We figure this is probably the last year we can do the group costume. Next Halloween, The Kid will probably have thoughts and feelings about his Halloween costume. Also, this is probably the last year we can eat all his trick or treating candy. Sigh.
