This is The Monkey getting ready to do some hardcore trick or treating.
Apparently she wasn’t into going the cute route this year. Actually, last year she went as a vampire/witch hybrid.
I told her that she looked like an angry melting grape.
She ignored that.
She told me all about her plans to make sure that people wouldn’t know who she was. Then she told me that her mommy was driving her around so that she could get to the houses of pretty much everyone she has ever met, before the 8 pm curfew.
Then she headed towards the door.
She turned back suddenly and said, “And I DON”T look like an angry melting grape, Peter.”
Later in the evening, her 60+ year old grandparents came to the door — trick or treating in full costume!
3 hours after she left, I met up with The Monkey and got a debriefing from her.
She ended up with SIX grocery bags full of goodies.
I asked her if she had fun. She said, “I did have fun.”
Then The Monkey Mommy said, “Peter, I almost had to honk the horn at every house! She was socializing. She was in the last place for 15 minutes!”
The Monkey turned to her and said, “They HAD to show me their new kitty. Neko. It’s Siamese!!”
