All dressed up...

"We're going to buy Halloween costumes. What do you want to be?" I asked Little Dog.
"I want a costume!" he replied with sincere enthusiasm.
"Great! What kind of costume?"
"Want a Halloween costume!" he clarified.
"Yes, but what kind of Halloween costume?" I asked hoping for more direction.
"French? You want to be French for Halloween?" I asked, thinking I'd misunderstood him.
Uh, ok. I figured we'd work something out at the costume shop.

In the car, Big Dog tried to narrow in on what kind of costume Little Dog had in mind.
"You're going to have a Halloween costume, but what do you want to be?" he stressed.
"Jealous," Little Dog replied emphatically.
"No, what do you want to be for Halloween?" he asked again.

Big Dog was easier, he wanted to be a cowboy. I know how to shop for that.

I want to know what costume little dog ended up with. Scared and jealous seem like interesting costumes indeed.

Those are definitely some interesting costume choices! I should ask my students tomorrow how one could dress as scared or jealous.

Mrs. F said...

Heh. I am always scared on Halloween. Good choice.

I asked Violet just the other day what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday. A birthday cake is the kind she would like. Not a wedding cake, thankfully not a urinal cake. A birthday cake.

Finn is a cowboy too. 'Cause he says "yee haw" and it's awesome.
