HIM: "So. What am I going to be for Halloween?"
ME: "You are going to be a shark ... like Silas ... Only, technically, you are going to be EATEN by a shark.
HIM: "COOL. ... What are you going to be?"
ME: "Well, Annabel wanted me to be a mermaid like her this year ..."
HIM: "THAT'S MY GIRL!!!"
ME: "... but I thought I'd me more comfortable if I went as a gorilla dressed like a mermaid ... So I got the costume a size larger."
HIM: "Arrrgh ... Rats."
