Skull in the Family

October 4, 2013 — Last Halloween, I bought my first full-sized plastic skeleton. I found him at Target and had no real plans for him other than filling that full-sized plastic skeleton-shaped void I’ve always had in my life.

I know I was supposed to use him as a decoration, but he ended up kind of just hanging out with me all the time. We watched movies together, pranked my wife together, and generally just had a blast together. I didn’t even put him away after the season ended. Just sat him in the easy chair in my study, and made anybody that visited me sit on the floor.

In fact, we had so much fun that, this season, we immediately went out and bought a second full-sized plastic skeleton. Got this one from Costco, but it turns out they’re pretty much the exact same skeleton.

I call the first one T, the second one C, and I’m currently trying to pitch our life together as a reality television show.

This is what it's like living with two skeletons. And, obviously, credit goes to my wife for taking the pics.

Of course we all got together on the next Halloween. Check out the Skull in the Family Reunion.
