We did a scary-fairy-tale-themed haunted house at our friend's place for Halloween, and it was a HIT (despite our lackadaisical planning session). It helps that our friend lives in a neighborhood that is super popular for trick-or-treating (I had never heard of "trick-or-treat commuting" before, but apparently it's a thing here in SoCal) - at some points in the night there were literally (and I don't use that word lightly) streams of children coming down the sidewalk. It was so much fun.
I was supposed to be one of Goldilocks' three bears, but Toby and I were lazy about buying costumes and went super last minute...not a bear-themed accessory was to be found. So I bought a Domo costume. Best choice ever. I will never be more popular than I was this Halloween. I had kids calling my name across the yard, asking to take my picture, multiple group hug requests (which I fulfilled, duh), and high fives galore. However, I still have no idea what Domo is. I know it's Japanese. I've neglected to do my usual obsessive internet research like I usually do when I have a question...I think it's because I want it to remain a mystery. The mysteriousness of my costume's popularity only serves to make it that much more humorous.

It was a long night for the poor guy.
