Fun day. The boy was a construction worker. I suggested in subsequent years he go as a police officer, cowboy, Indian, etc. The wife vetoed that.

At her school, they encouraged costumes for the kids. She described the girl's costumes as whatever you'd dress up as with "slutty" in front of it.

They didn't allow masks at her school. I guess that's not surprising with recent security concerns. But it makes impossible the best Halloween costume I've ever seen (well, except for the people I saw in Fort Collins who dress up as The Residents--it was spot on--in fact, in hindsight I'm convinced they actually were The Residents). I was in high school and we were allowed to dress up. I forget who I was that year. I was walking in the rotunda (a circular corridor around which were the offices and the library, and in the center a small auditorium with wild acoustics) when I saw a buddy of mine.

In a Santa Claus suit.

Wearing an executioner's hood.

That's cool.

In my morning class, one student was wearing a wizard's hat. He had a conversation with the professor about how few people were dressed up at Stop-n-Shop that morning, and how no one seems to be getting into the spirit. She told us that one of the schools her kids attend had mandatory costumes for the day. Either you were in uniform with a note explaining that you couldn't dress up for religious reasons, you were in costume, or you were punished. I like that.

I told Cory about him being a construction worker, and I had the same thought as you, even creating a multi-year collage of him doing the hand motions for YMCA. Cory was pretty sure that some year he couldn't be convinced to be an indian and would demand to be the green power ranger. So you'd have YMCA with the construction worker, the policeman, the cowboy, and the green power ranger.
