No jury would have convicted her, of course.

So, completely out of the blue my wife asks me, “What’s your opinion of a Chewbacca costume?”

I of course reply, “Grooowhaaahnnnneahhh.”

She rolls her eyes, and informs me that this is about the Halloween costume for my firstborn.

So I respond, “You want to dress him up as Chewbacca?”

“No, I want to dress him up as Han Solo.  It’ll be easier.”

“So, you plan to dress up as Chewbacca?”

“No, I thought that you could.”

“Why me?”

“Because I’m going to be very pregnant at that point.”

“Well, you could go as Ja[DANGER!  DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!  ALERT! ALERT! ALERT!  EMERGENCY SPEECH CENTER OVERRIDE!  EMERGENCY SPEECH CENTER OVERRIDE!  THIS IS NO DRILL!] mumblemumblemumble.”

She snickers, waits for maximum effect, then goes on “I’d thought that I’d wear a long white dress, put up my hair in buns and go as Princess Leia…”

Yes.  Yes, that would be a very good idea.”

So, I guess I know what I’m being for Halloween.

PS: Luckily, I had just steam-cleaned what will be the kid’s new room, so I had fumes to fall back on as an excuse.
