We will definitely have trick-or-treaters tonight. I should probably take a tally of costumes--the paper said Chilean coal miner and of course Lady Gaga are hot this year.
Micah ran the Monster Dash Half Marathon yesterday that went from Lake Nokomis to Lake Calhoun and finished at Lake Harriet. 86th out of 3600! Gus wore his bumblebee costume and got photographed multiple times by multiple official race photographers. Call it exploitation on my part, but really, I think we warmed a lot of hearts out there. Only the grinchiest Grinch doesn't break into a wide smile at the sight of a small dog with expressive eyebrows dressed as an even more diminutive creature.
The closest thing we've gotten to a horror movie this weekend would be watching Precious last night. I would consider chainsaws tame in comparison. And that's enough on that.
Gus's costume for this evening is undecided. We can reprise the bumblebee with now-tattered wings, or pull out the police man or the hot dog. Or a bumblebee police man. Notice that we stopped at three year's worth of costumes and are now recycling. Tonight's choice will, of course, depend on his mood. If I were to decide at this moment, I'd say static cling...with a dash of hot dog.
