Candy, little one?

2005-11-01 17:04:36.379215+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Went down to Jeanne and Janine's yesterday evening to hang out and pass out candy. Their neighbor goes whole hog, this year he did up his garage in pirate theme, the entrance to which was a two story skull with glowing eyes, so they at least took an awning out front, covered it in blue and purple lights, and arranged various scary stuff around it.

But we got to talking about next year, and somehow the idea of a gingerbread house came up, where kids had to stick their heads in an "oven" to reach in for the candy... Big milk cartons at the edge of the yard with Hansel and Gretel pictures on 'em, that sort of thing.

Jack talks about making an "Operation game" costume, and he references Felix Jung's Operation: The Costume, and... well... that seems like a fun thing to put kids through to get their candy... '

Oh yeah: Costumes of the evening were the preppy teenagers dressed up as Starbucks employees. Guess they really know what's scary to us Marin dwellers.

Philip liked the teenage couple posing as matching mustard and ketchup containers.
