Boy: Yes, but I’m not sure what to wear.
Mum: So, what are your friends wearing?
Boy: Maria always reads books about magic so she’s going to dress as a character from Peter Pan.
Mum: As a pirate?
Boy: No, mum. She’s going as Tinker Bell, the fairy. Kim is going to dress up as a Pirate.
Mum: He will make a very good pirate. What about Harry?
Boy: Well, you know how he likes superheroes. Last year he was Batman, so he’s going to dress up as spiderman this year.
Mum: What about Amy? I remember, she dressed up as a rabbit last year.
Boy: She is going to dress up in a witch costume and her sister Sam is going to wear the rabbit costume this year.
Mum: So, what about you?
Boy: I’m thinking about wearing either a dinosaur or clown costume.
Mum: A dinosaur costume will be difficult to dance in. I think a clown costume will be better.
Boy: Yeah, you might be right mum.
