I live in a very family-oriented neighbourhood with lots and lots of little kiddies and very little traffic which makes it a fabulous neighbourhood for trick-or-treating, so Maggie had lots of kids and bags to poke her nose at when we were out for our evening constitutional. As we were on our way home we walked past a dad obviously waiting for his kids.
“Great costume” he said
“The retriever – great costume”
“Yeah, thanks, pretty realistic, eh?”
“Are you out with your kids?”
“Uh, no, no kids, just walking the dog” as I move away, closer to my own driveway
“Dad!!! Come on!!! Let’s go!!!!”
“Here, have a KitKat”
“Thanks for the candy”
“You’re welcome. You’re the best I’ve seen tonight”
I giggled my way into the house. I guess I was really working the sexy fleece and pink toque I had on last night!!
