Luke and I went trick-or-treating in this getup, and I remember very distinctly doing the cheer “Ra-ra-ree, kick ’em in the knee, ra-ra-rass, kick ’em in the other knee.” My illustrious dad taught me this one and I always wondered why it didn’t rhyme, and why all the other adults laughed when I did it.

  1. >love these photos from Halloweens past. Very cute costumes. I laughed about your Klansman comment — but it’s so true. I’m sure you were sweet and benign whatever white creature you were.Elaine (closely observed)

  2. >At least you didn’t grow up in Minneapolis where it didn’t matter what you went as because you were invariably covered by snowsuits and moon boots.

  3. >I swear my brother had the exact same costume as your brother one year. And I bet it was handmade too by your mom?I’m going to dig up a picture of him in it, and I’ll let you know when I post it…too funny!
