I picked up my son from guitar lessons tonight and I asked him whether he was too tired to stop at Walgreens to get batteries for my new boombox (It has an IPod dock. It's totally sweet.). Luckily he was agreeable. As usual he started frothing up in a retail frenzy the second he stepped into the store, taking off like he was fired out of a cannon. Before I knew it, he had a bag of bones for the faux graveyard we have set up under the pine tree, a giant headed ghoul with tattered shroud and light up eyes to hang over the basketball hoop, new ear buds for his IPod and a Halloween mask.
I was just about to put my foot down at the mask when he threw it on and looked at me. That was it. I was DONE. I laughed so hard I almost peed. He insisted on wearing it all the way home, mugging at everyone that pulled up next to us at the traffic light and accusing me of not loving him because he looked like an ape. It was all I could do not to drive off the road.
When we got home I set up my new boom box and he grabbed a microphone and microphone stand out of the den and he lip synced "Ain't No Other Man" by Christina Aguilera with the mask on. Again fits of hysterical laughter.
Either it takes very little to make me laugh or this is the funniest Halloween mask EVER. What do you think?
