Ok, Saturday night we had some friends over for “game night” (never played a game though but we are branching out… one couple is CANADIAN. If you count Toronto as part of Canada).
I don’t remember how but a discussion ensued where I admitted that The Karate Kid movie creeps me out a bit because Daniel-san shows up at his school’s Halloween dance dressed as a shower, curtain and all. I just felt that not only was it not plausible, but the costume itself made me nervous. Bryan was adamant that the costume made sense because Daniel was trying to “hide” from Johnny and his gang of Cobra Kai skeletons (by the way, the skeletons did not scare me nearly as much as the shower) and what better way to do it than hide behind a curtain.
Really? No. First of all, if you are trying to go incognito on Halloween, wouldn’t you just wear some generic monster mask and blend right in? But a HUMONGOUS, RED, POLKA-DOTTED SHOWER CURTAIN? If I was at that dance, and on the other side of the room, I would have been all, WHO IS BEHIND THAT CRAZY HUGE COSTUME? WHO? I NEED TO KNOW IMMEDIATELY. And I would have done this even from the other side of the room. You know what I’m saying? You are from the WRONG side of the tracks and what, you’re just going to sit down and create this elaborately huge and uncool costume in bright patterns so that nobody notices you? It’s crap.
