The kids are outside. They've lugged a box full of old Halloween costumes up from downstairs and are trying them all on. I think my silliest Halloween costume was the year I dressed as a cereal killer and carried around a large box of Cheerios with a knife jammed into the front and blood dripping down. As a kid, I had a great cowboy outfit.
My brother Tommy REALLY gets into Halloween. Every year his costumes are original and increasingly complex. He travels down to Salem with his buds and parties all night long. Last year he was the Abominable Snowman and his friend was Yukon Cornelius.
