As promised, here’s a group shot and cast list from our trip down the Yellow Brick Road on Halloween:
Cast of Characters:
The Tin Man: Gaba (my mom)
Glinda the Good Witch: Nana (Dave’s mom)
The Wicked Witch: Yours truly (I’m not going to take it personally that Madeline asked me to dress up as the Wicked Witch, especially since she asked Pop, a 6’5″ man, to be a Munchkin.)
The Scarecrow: Dave
Not pictured: Papa (my dad), who was cast as the Cowardly Lion and ordered a one-size-fits-all costume that he called his “sausage casing” and thus refused to wear out in public (even a grandparent’s love has limits) and Pop (Dave’s dad), who just couldn’t come up with a suitable Munchkin get-up.
