Halloween will soon be here, and you know what that means......pumpkin carving, groovy decorations, far out stuff happening at school, and of course shopping for a new costume. I was on my way to Woolworth's when I bumped into Marc and Jason.
"Hey what are you 2 guys up to?" I asked.
"Oh I need a Halloween costume", Marc said. "Jason said we should check out Woolworth to see what we can find.."
"Outta site! I was just going there myself", I told them. So we walked there together. When we walked in, Stephanie and Melody were already there.
Stephanie was looking in the fish aquarium, and Melody was checking out the Halloween records.
"Hey Julie! Come see the new tropical fish they just got!" So I went over to the pet section while Jason went to talk to Melody and Marc looked around for a costume.
"Hey Melody, you thinking of buying that record?"
"I dunno...it looks pretty scary."
I looked over at Marc who looked a little lost. I knew this was gonna be his first Halloween here in Springfield, and he wanted just the right costume. I walked over to him to see if I could help.
"So what kind of costume are you looking for, Marc?" I asked.
"Do you wanna be something from TV?" Jason asked. "My dad bought me a Planet Of The Apes costume last week."
"Nah, I don't wanna be nothing from TV, except maybe a monster movie." Marc answered.
I looked around a spotted the perfect costume!
"Well since you like Dracula so much", I said looking at his t-shirt, " here's a good costume for you."
"Hey now, that's alright", Marc said smiling. "Thanks Julie."
I think he was happy to find a good costume. "What costume do you want, Julie?" he asked me. I pulled a box off of the shelf.
"I think I wanna be Supergirl", I said to him. Marc nodded his head and said, "Cool".
"Hey Marc check out this record", Jason said.
"Hey dynamite, it's got a vampire on the cover!"
"Yeah, I think I'm gonna buy it. Wanna come over to my house and listen to it?"
"That would be super!", Marc said.
"Marc, do you need a Trick or Treat pumpkin?" Melody asked him. "They got some neat ones over here."
"Yeah I do. Thanks Melody."
So we all paid for our stuff and were getting ready to leave. Stephanie and Melody hung around and had milkshakes and grilled cheese sandwiches at the lunch counter.
We told them good-bye as we carried our goodies out.
Oh man, do I ever love this time of year! I can't wait until Halloween! We all have so much fun every year! I hope you guys in the future have some super groovy plans for Halloween. Check back in a couple of weeks to see how we're gonna celebrate!
Until then, future readers,
