I did not finish my Doctor Who scarf before Halloween. I knew I wouldn’t have time, but it’s still disappointing. It’s a little less than halfway done which means it’s about the length of a normal scarf and people unfamiliar with the 4th Doctor say “What do you mean it isn’t done, it looks fine.”
I wore it anyway to take my daughter out trick-or-treating and at one house a woman asked it I’d like a treat too. “No thank you, I said,” thinking it was so sweet of her to offer.
“Are you sure?” she persisted.
“Yep, I’m good, thanks.”
“But. . . you have a hat!”
“Oh, well. . .okay then. I do have a hat. And a scarf. Thank you!”
So I took the treat which was actually a little decorated paper bag with several pieces of candy and cute fall stickers on it. This lady had put some work into her Halloween handouts. And she noticed my hat, so ya gotta love her.
Meanwhile at our house at the end of a longish curving dark street we got a total of zero trick-or-treaters and so will be wallowing in leftover candy for much too long I’m afraid. I would have happily given out candy to any grown ups who came by too, hat or no hat.
