The Halloween Costume

"Mommy, what are you going to be for Halloween?" Lily asked me the other day as I was getting dressed.

"Um, I don't know, Lily. Probably nothing," I said.

"Well, you could be a person with a baby in your tummy," she suggested.

"That's true, but that really wouldn't be much of a costume," I said.

"Well, you could be a pumpkin," she said. Then, looking at my outfit (black shirt, black hat and jeans) she added, "You could wear all black and be a big, black pumpkin."

"Um, Lily, when have you ever seen a black pumpkin?" I asked.

"Well, of course you would be a rotten pumpkin," she said.

Ah, yes, of course: a rotten pumpkin. Not sure why I didn't think of that!
