Staying the Course

A timeline of events leading up to Halloween and Gus' "Big Decision"

Early September: Gus spies a Mickey Mouse costume at the Disney Store and says that's what he wants to be for Halloween. Mom tells him it's too early to decide. He doesn't seem to mind.

Mid-September: Mom: "Hey Gus, what do you want to be for Halloween?"
Gus: "Mickey Mouse."

Late September: Dad: "Hey Gus, what do you want to be for Halloween?"
Gus: "Mickey Mouse"

Early October: Auntie "Hey Gus, what are you going to be for Halloween?"
Gus: "Mickey Mouse"

Mid-October: Mom goes to purchase Mickey Mouse costume...SOLD OUT.

Two week before Halloween: Mom is in bidding war on eBay for Mickey Mouse costume. Had no idea how many people need these things. Finally purchases one.

Thursday before Halloween: On the way to the Nintendo party, dressed as Mickey Mouse, Gus says from the backseat, "I want to be Buzz Lightyear."
Mom panics.
"Just kidding," says Gus.

Halloween: A very happy Mickey Mouse goes trick-or-treating. Mom breathes a sigh of relief.
