BUGS

My first Halloween I was Bugs Bunny.  I had a body suit made of some thin rough material and a mask over my face tied by a rubber band.   We were sitting on the stage at the community center, me and my dad.  There was a girl in white makeup and scary hair and red fingernails.  I had a little pumpkin bucket with candy in it.  Dad was whole wheat, he never allowed candy.  The pumpkin bucket was marked for confiscation after the show, and I knew it.  What dad didn't know was that there was a small hole in the mask under the over-hanging Bugs tooth.  It was the exact circumference of a Good and Plenty.
