"The right to buy weapons is the right to be free." -A.E. van Vogt
I always answer "What are you going to be for Halloween?" with "A grownup."

WHAT? But your Tactical Barbie costume has so much verisimilitude!
My 6 year old daughter was pressing me with that question last night.I finally replied in a stern tone of voice "daddy".
I am going as a mid-level government funtionary. Should scare the Be-jesus out of people.
Today I saw a man walking into our local electronics store, wearing a simple white T-shirt on which he had written in black marker:Error 404: Costume Not Found
A real grown-up would have said an 'adult'.gfa
Since. presumably, the age of 8?
I'll have the same costume tonight that I always trot out at Halloween. Some years ago I found some small rubber goat horns in a color that matches my skin tone. Nonchalantly handing out candy dressed normally with the horns, the sub 4-year-old crowd are awestruck and nearly too terrified to take the candy."Are those real?""Yes.""They're not!"It just depends on what your definition of what "real" is.
I've decided to get a jump on Christmas, and go as Scrooge. "Bah, humbug!"
@gfa: A real grown-up would have said an 'adult'.In the immortal words of the sage Buffy Summers, Hallow e'en is "Come as you aren't night.Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go trade this Victorian bankers outfit in for a cardigan and some boat shoes. Won't you be my friend?
Hold a clipboard and declare "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you." Terrifies mere mundanes.
I'm going as a computer geek. That is to say, I will be sitting at the computer while my wife answers the door.Halloween is not my favorite holiday. This is the first time in years that we've even planned to be home for it.
