Okay, so the scary clown has not yet begun to shoot blood from his eyeballs as I had hoped, but he is now tied—by the neck—to the lamppost with what looks like a periwinkle unitard. In the interest of better clown posture, I guess.
I’ll probably stop by that store today to see if I can find a cheap, minimal, last-minute costume. The other day AK described the following conversation with her coworker, and I could relate:
AK: I’m trying to come up with a cheap, minimal, last-minute Halloween costume.
Coworker: Alright, let’s think about what we have to work with. What do you have in the costume section of your closet?
AK: [Blank stare.]
Coworker: You know, your old clothes and stuff. What do you do with your old clothes?
AK: I give them away.
Coworker: [Shaking head.] Before you give anything away, you should always ask yourself, “Could I use this as part of a costume?”
