Never underestimate Hubby on Halloween.
This year, our kids dressed up and went trolling up and down the neighborhood, while Hubby and I stayed behind. In the years past, we had a block party in order to “streamline” the Trick-or-Treaters into one area to make things easier on the parents, but this year was called off due to several neighbors moving away. So, we sat outside so that the kids wouldn’t be ringing the doorbell and driving the dogs crazy.
Normally, the evening would have entailed me exclaiming over the costumes and Hubby going off with the kids. Not this time. This time he was adding to the conversations.
Hubby: You know, we can go get the other snake and place it in the candy basket and let the kids pick through.
Me: Uh, NO!
Hubby: Oh, c’mon! It would be fun!
Me: You’re insane.
And then there were the costumes…. Hubby is not one to *ahem* gloss over anything.
Me: (pointing out a woman dressed as a so-called Little Bo Peep in stockings and high heels) I would NEVER be outside dressed like that!
Hubby: What’s wrong with it?
Me: Obviously nothing from your point of view.
Hubby: She’s sure Peeping out of it.
And the kids dressed like zombies got two pieces of candy, for obvious reasons.
Zombie Kid: TRICK OR TREAT!!
Hubby: Hey! A zombie! You’re lucky I left my shotgun inside.
Zombie Kid: Huh?
Hubby: Practice for the Zombie Apocalypse, you know?
Me: HERE’S SOME CANDY HAVE A GOODNIGHT!!!!
I think next year I’ll put him in charge, and videotape the whole thing. It’s the only way people will believe me 😉

Or is it Little ‘Ho Peep?

HA! That’s what I was thinking 😀

She was at the party I went to last year. Sure gets around. No wonder she lost her sheep. They couldn’t keep up! 🙂 Though I’ll bet she can’t run from the zombies too well in those shoes….food for thought 😛
I totally believe you…without film 🙂

Of course you believe me! You KNOW how he’s like 😆

Yeah, I’ve seen pics online of Lil’ Bo Peeping. I can neither confirm nor deny that said image has been *ahem* downloaded and saved….or made into a wallpaper…or….*ahem*
I think maybe your husband and I would get along REALLY well handing out candy. Hehehehehehehehehehe…

Yes, you two would get along like a house on fire.
Which is worrisome, when you think about it 😀

I’d get along with your hubby, too. I would have liked to been out front checking out Ms Peep but I was banned to the backyard with Max, the big scary 114 lb German Shepherd. The first three times the bell rang, he ran up to the glass door and barked ferociously. I would pull him back, the Mrs. would open the door and hand out candy. As the last group left the porch, one small kid yells “Something is leaking.” On the porch was a puddle and a trail leading away. Max had literally scared the pee out of one of them. After I quit laughing, Max and I were sent out back. I’m guessing we’ll have a little less traffic next year.

Hey there! Long time no see 🙂
Your dog sounds awesome, and I am more than sure you would get along with Hubby.
Funny part is, I had to censor some of what he said 😉

I’d believe it. But video would be great. 🙂

Heh, you don’t have to imagine what it would be like, either 😀

We only got one trick-or-treater. Had lots of candy. Now it’s mostly gone. I’m not sure how that happened.
