3.82 - The One with the "Gonk"

It's Halloween again and this year Naomi wanted to hand out candy at my place. For the last few years I've had to work on Halloween night so I didn't have to worry about handing out anything. But this year has been a year of change...

We got some really cute kids that came around for candy...the first kid was a Clone Trooper which I thought was pretty cool to start the night off with. We saw everything from Princesses, to cowboys, to the lazy older kids who wear their hockey equipment to get free candy. The prize for the best costume was a kid who dressed up as a "gonk" droid from Star Wars. Actually he introduced himself as "the repair droid from the Star Wars Battlefront video game". Obviously he made it himself and looked like he was stuck in a box with big open panels so he could see...kinda like "Barrier Man". All I'm thinking is..."wow kid...that's such a geek costume...impressive...but ouch." Then he turns to me and says, "You're wearing a Splinter Cell shirt! I love Splinter Cell!"

...who's the geek now?

You got told by a little kid. We had candy at our house, but no kids showed up. They were out, but they never came on our side of the street. Ah well.

More candy for me!
