Dumpster Chic

Tuesday, September 20, 2005
The seven-year-old has been busy decorating the front porch for Halloween. (He doesn't believe in waiting until the last minute when it comes to getting ready for important holidays.) He has tied a bunch of empty laundry detergent bottles, water bottles, and other assorted recyclables together, and has stretched his creation across half of the porch. He wants our house to look like a "run down old pile of junk" so that it will look "really scary." And I have to give him credit: he's certainly managed to achieve just that effect.

For some reason, I feel the need to explain to every courier who comes to the door that we're making our house look this way on purpose.
