Kicking the New K-Nowledge
You probably don’t recognize the guy on the left. Just look a little to the right–it’s Amos! He requested to be a Clone this year. I put some effort into a marginally successful C3P-O costume for him last year, but once I could not locate a white sweatsuit as a base, I just couldn’t figure out a clone costume. And they had those cheap nylon ones on Amazon, so as a grand experiment, I clicked. As anticipated, he was happy and I am deeply dissatisfied. Also, basically no one knew what he was, and yeah, take away the mask and the weapon, and it is pretty unrecognizable, but even with those…? Oh well, he was still happy.
P.J. wanted to be Luke Skywalker again. Yes, it was a great costume. Yes, it still fits him. Yes, it required no thought from me. Bo-ring.
In the car on the way back to our neighborhood, Amos assessed the situation:
Amos: I have a blaster, Luke has a lightsaber. What weapon does a librarian have?
Amos and P.J.: What’s that?!
