Charlie Brown and the NBA Lockout

Charlie Brown and the NBA Lockout

With the rough time Thomas has been having lately, it went right down to the last minute for us to make a decision whether or not we were going to go trick-or-treating. Thomas’ costume ended up being pretty lowkey – a Charlie Brown ghost with too many holes – and Erik decided to go as the NBA lockout. We went to Brookline and hit up Beale street (to give you a sense of how popular this street is we got there about 6:45 and one house was putting up a sign that said “Ran out of candy, 700 served” and I don’t think they were exaggerating.) Reaction to Thomas’ costume was mixed – the people who got it really loved it (one woman stopped her vehicle and had her kids get out to take a picture of him), but a lot of people didn’t get it which makes me sad that “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” just isn’t as prevalent a touchstone as it used to be.
