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.”
“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.
