What's the Worst Halloween Costume You've Ever Seen?

Original image

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. When my wife and I bought our first house, I was really excited for Halloween. But as we drifted into prime time that first year, the costumes got decidedly more half-assed. The one that stands out was a girl who showed up alone around 8:45 with the words “Skittles Candy” lazily ironed on her red shirt. She never even said trick-or-treat. To be fair, she couldn’t say anything to me, since she was talking on her cell phone. We've run a series of posts about great costumes, but what about the worst?

2. You've been put in charge of your city or state's committee to name an official state book. The book should have some connection to the region—perhaps the story is set there, or the author was born there. Which book would you nominate?

3. Finish this sentence: I'm surprisingly proficient at ____________.

4. If you could (or were forced to) go back to high school and re-take one class, which class would you choose? You'd be taught by the same teacher and the curriculum would be identical.

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
