The ear doctor loves Halloween. It's probably one of his top 3 favorite holidays. He thinks of a costume months and months in advance and we usually spend about 3 weeks sewing his masterpiece together. I really wish I had the photo of him as a garden gnome to share...it was pure art.
This year we haven't been invited to any Halloween parties. My bff whose birthday is Halloween moved to Baltimore (curses) so now it looks like we may not have any real plans for the big night. This was a bit of a relief for me. I thought maybe we could just get some scary (ish) movies and stay up late together getting freaked out.
However, the past couple of weeks the ear doctor has started trying to talk me into going TRICK-OR-TREATING with him. Um, we don't have any kids or anything. He thinks it is totally legit for two adults almost 30 years old to dress up and beg for candy. He keeps insisting that it would be hilarious to see the looks on people's faces when they open the door and there we are, bags extended. Our dignity for the bargain basement price of a stale, rock hard tootsie roll and partially opened smarties.
I just can't bring myself to catch his vision for the evening.
What do you think? Strange or kind of funny?
WHOA, lots of you are very passionate about this one. What if instead of just showing up and asking for a treat we provide a trick as well? I could play my fiddle and the ear doctor could make our dog dance on his back legs? Would that be funnier/prevent hostility?
