So today is Halloween, so of course we had the costume parade at school. There were some funny/interesting costumes (mostly, but not all, middle-schoolers):
-"Deviled eggs"- someone wore read sweats and devil horns and tail (devil), and a white shirt with a yellow circle (egg)
-"Chick magnet"- a sixth- or seventh-grade boy attached stuffed chicks all over his outfit, and threw some in the audience
-A group of junior boys dressed up as Monty Python monks
-Seven seventh-grade girls dressed up as seven crayola crayons
-Four middle-school girls were a s'more- one marshmallow, one piece of chocolate, two graham crackers
-A boy dressed up as a fairy
-A seventh(?)-grade girl dressed as a "dark fairy"
-A hobo. Okay.
-"Change we can believe in"- ninth-grade girl, carried a sign that said "CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN", covered her clothing with fake coins, wore a black afro-ish wig
-A seventh-grade girl was a "vampire", or something
-Some middle-school girl was Sarah Palin
Tonight, I didn't go out trick-or-treating, but I did give out candy to the kids that came to my door. There were a few fire-fighters, superheroes, and athletes.
Then, four boys came up to the door. They were all probably about 12 years old, or something. One of them was a hippie. I don't remember what one of them was. Two of them were wearing all black, studs, black hair, make-up.
I asked them what they were dressed up as.
"We're emo drug dealers."
Not emo kids. Emo drug dealers.
These kids were like 12.
