Our son bought a new banana costume this year, since the "Adult Small" one no longer fits him. He was tempted by the "ear of corn" costume, but it's only sold online, and he waited until the day before Halloween to take action.

The new, improved banana suit has black seams on it and I expect it to last awhile. Sturdy enough so far—he wore it to school yesterday, and then to 24-Hour Fitness for his post-school workout. I am going to miss this weird, loopy kid so much when he goes off to college next year!

In other news, it's November 1st and I am doing mini_wrimo this year for the first time in ages. So, gather me my prompts while I may, to keep from running into a dry spell! Yes, even for my minimalist 100-words/day goal.

The other challenge, which I've experienced in just the last 1 1/2 weeks, will be staying awake after 9:30 or 10:00. I'm a night owl by nature, and after summer things just keep humming along until some point in the Fall where I'm suddenly battling this snooze attack every night. I'm remembering now that I always run into this issue for mini_wrimo or any variant thereof, since they are all in November. So... write earlier?

But that involves planning. And free time. :O

Requested to join mini_wrimo. Will watch this year...or maybe I'll play. One problem for me is I don't write on Sabbath. So maybe just watch.


Your son sounds like a treasure!

Oh, if you have a day of the week where you don't write then a "write-every-day" challenge definitely won't work. At least Nano is month-based, though it's a month of horror. ;)

Our son is a hilarious kid. With the previous banana costume, he wore it outside to shoot hoops in the front yard one day, and would lope off to the breezeway any time a car came along. All this so the driver would think, "Wait, did I just see a BANANA playing basketball?!?"

You have to love that kind of a sense of humor. :)

That's hilarious! I love it!
