Worst Halloween Ever – It had to be 1978 or ’79 I’m thinking, not too long from when Star Wars first came out. I wanted to dress as Luke Skywalker for Halloween, I mean really what kid that age wouldn’t want that. Problem was, back then you couldn’t just go to the store and pick up a Luke Skywalker costume. Things like that just didn’t exist. So my Mom cobbled together something vaguely recognizable as Luke’s outfit from Tatooine. I don’t remember all of it, but pretty sure it was a button down white shirt of my Dad’s I wrapped around my waste, some sweatpants and my Grandpa’s old army web belt. Lightsaber? Good luck with that one, I think it was a piece of wood painted yellow. I was pretty proud of the outfit though, I was Luke Skywalker, scourge of the Empire. So off we went Trick or Treating, me as the Rebellion’s newest hero and my little brother…as a clown. First house we went to was an older lady, who of course adored the ‘cute little clown’ and had no idea who I was. That was the unfortunate theme of the night, here’s how it usual went down.
Brother & I – “Trick or Treat!”
Person at door – “Oh, what do we have here? An adorable little clown and….”<awkward pause>”…and what are you dressed up as tonight?”
Me, mumbling – “Luke Skywalker”
Person at door – “…well…um…don’t you look nice.”
…and off we went. Like I said, worst Halloween ever. Not only did no one kn0w who I was, that damn clown out-candied me at least 3 to 1.
Back with the Pocket Doppler Prognosticators this afternoon and hope everyone has a great & safe Halloween weekend. See you back here Monday.
