Several years ago I bought this little guy, who is motion activated, to stand outside the door on Halloween and greet our trick or treaters.
He’s so sweet. I fell in love with him the first time I saw him. He says, “Happy Halloween!” or “Do you like my costume? I’m ready for my treat!” or “Halloween is fun!” All said in an enthusiastic, friendly little-boy voice.
But, do you notice something funny about him? Like his pants? Or lack thereof? I bought him two years ago, and didn’t use him last year, but this year when I got him out, I noticed for the first time those wimpy pantaloons they have on him — with his “cool” tennis shoes! This look must not have bothered me the first time I used him, but now that I have noticed, it really bothers me. It looks like he’s ready to go trick or treating in his long johns!. Or, more accurately, in his sister’s long-johns!
So, I decided he needs pants! I thought I would go to the Goodwill store and pick some up, but yesterday when I was at the super store, I happened to see the little boy department and just wandered through, on the chance that something cheap would catch my eye. And, voila, it did! I found gray sweats for $5.00!
So, now he has pants.
He was always a happy little fella, but I think he looks happier now, in his “cool” sweats.
May you have a fun and safe Halloween!
