Hello future readers!
Well, it's that time of year again...time to go costume shopping at Woolworth's! I love shopping there! There's always so much to see, and it always smells like popcorn, candy and plastic toys. Yesterday after the cartoons, I stopped by Robyn's house, and we walked over to Woolworth's together.
When we got there, we saw Danny, Kyle and Bridget.
Bridget was drinking a soda at the lunch counter.
Kyle was checking out the radios and tape recorders by the back counter.
Danny was in the Halloween section, checking out the costumes and the records.
We called out to them and each of them said Hi and gave us a wave.
Bridget finished her soda and walked over to us.
"Hi Julie, Hi Robyn", Bridget said. "You guys shopping for costumes?"
"Hey Bridget", Robyn began. "Nah, my mom got my costume already. But I need a new trick-or-treat pumpkin. Mine broke last year."
"Well, I need a new costume", I told Bridget. "I just haven't decided what to be for Halloween."
"Me neither", said Bridget. "Let's look together."
So Robyn went to look for a new pumpkin, while Bridget and I checked out the costumes.
"Hmmmm...maybe I should be Morticia Addams. I love watching 'The Addams Family'. "
"I wonder if I should be Batgirl. I've got red hair just like she does."
Meanwhile Danny was checking out a scary record, and Kyle zoomed in on the candy.
Bridget and I finally decided on our costumes.
"Outta site, Julie! I love Morticia!"
"You'll make a great Batgirl, Bridget."
"You gonna buy that spooky record, Danny?"
"Yeah. Mrs. Johnson borrowed a copy of this album from the library and played it for the class. It's really super."
"You're not gonna eat all that candy, are you Kyle?"
"Don't be goofy, they're for the trick-or-treaters. But I may help myself to a few pieces. Chocolate covered caramels are my favorite."
Well, it was just about time to leave. But before I paid for my costume, I wanted to look at the fish. The aquariums are so pretty.
As we walked home, I asked Robyn what costume her mom bought for her. She said I'd just have to wait 'til Halloween to find out, Oh man!
It's always a groove shopping at Woolworth's, especially for the holidays. Sometimes it's fun just looking around, even if I don't have any money. It gives me great ideas about what I want, and what gifts I should get for other people, like my mom. Since I only get 50 cents a week for my allowance, I can't really afford to get a lot at the department store, so I usually buy stuff from Woolworth's. I couldn't wait to go home and show my mom my costume! Halloween is gonna be dynamite!
Until next time, future readers,
