Happy Halloween

I managed to get out on time on Halloween night. The girls wanted to go trick-or-treating. Gwennie's friend from school came over because she wanted to go in our neighborhood. Zelda asked that I sit by the door and hand out candy to the trick-or-treater's. I was wondering if I should go ahead and get dressed up and try to scare some of the kids. Zelda simply said that I should just put on the contac lenses that white out my eyes, put on my fangs, and get on my long leather trenchcoat.

Why not? I'll have a little bit of fun.

There was a little kid who came up to me and did the whole, "Trick-or-Treat!"

I said, "Happy Halloween!" as I shoved some chocolate into his bag.

He said, "You look like a China Man!"

His mom was so stunned, and she tried to get him to shut up.

I literally fell over backwards in my chair from laughing so hard.

Here I am in half of my Halloween getup. Yet, "China Man" was what he saw.

Sorry, I'm just not overly sensitive. Does anyone else see that as funny? Or, is it just me?
