In the interest of full disclosure..I can be absentminded.
I know some of you will be shocked...those who know me..
not so much. Now that we have that out in the open, I am going to share
a story about our Trick or Treat experiences this year.
Princess and I headed out into our neighborhood with my NLCP,
and all around Gal Pal and Co-Conspirator Extraordinaire,Naomi
and her daughter, Peanut and her boyfriend,Rick.
Farmer Dad stayed home in case of Trick or Treaters.
We were a happy bunch at the outset, until Princess didn't like the way
her belt squeezed her belly, and undid it and got tangled in the too long costume that
she insisted on wearing despite many maternal warnings of just such a calamity.
Farmer Dad was called to pick her up for a quick costume change, returned her without a costume, but with his Halloween mask only and "street clothes". Anyhow...
I was trying to roll with it, I enjoy Halloween and was dressed as a Witch, as is my
tradition, we had been walking for while, my hat kept flying off in the wind.
I kept picking it up and Princess kept whining. We called Farmer Dad to pick her up,
per her request, he came, she refused to leave. Right before he arrived at our extremely
top secret location (it must have been we saw not one other Trick or Treater)I noticed my hat was gone...then realized it must have been gone for a while. Two or three blocks actually.
Rick gallantly offered to go walk
back the way we came to find my hat in the now encroaching darkness.
We sat down on the curb (after the girls hit up the houses they wanted to on that section of road) and had a piece of candy. Yeah, yeah...should have had it x-rayed first..I've never had
trouble with candy and don't bother with that rule. Please don't hate me.
Farmer Dad pulled up to drop Rick off, with my hat. We continued on our merry way
to walk another couple of blocks back to the house...pot roast was waiting after all.
When I wrote about Halloween originally, I took the story out to protect Rick's privacy,
and my dignity. Rick was a little bit offended to not be mentioned , there was no snit..he just
appeared a tiny bit hurt to his gf, who reported it to me, so I decided all bets were off on his privacy. Let this be a warning to all who hang out with me in real life, if you complain
(even to someone else) about being "left out" of a story here on my blog, I will find out, and you will become "BLOG FODDER". In case you missed it Rick, this was your public apology.
I really do appreciate your walking back to find my favorite Witch hat without any complaint at all. It is official, you are a nice guy.My hat, by the way is adorable even on me and I never look good in hats.
