Big Grin I want to tell my son the truth, but...

...last Halloween he went around the neighborhood as Buzz Lightyear, but before we left the house he wanted me to dress up too.

Some quick thinking and I went as Bono.



Every so often, he'll be looking through a magazine and every time he sees Bono, he goes "Dada!"

I tell him it's Bono but he insists it's Daddy...

--sigh--
What to do?

That's funny. You do look like the B-man in this pic.

I bet his mom gets a thrill if they are out and see a pic of B and he goes "dada". I know I would milk it!!!!

Campaign to relieve 3rd world debt and get AIDS drugs and Malaria drugs for Africa?

And perhaps front one of the greatest bands in history?

Great story! My family (including me) went as 3/4 of U2 last year for Halloween and Mr. Z looks strikingly like the Edge.

When my son was 2, he'd look at pics of Edge and look over at Daddy, playing guitar and say "Daddy Edge?" to which I could only reply "I wish, son. I wish."

Nice job looking like the B man! Better than I did!

So now we've seen the husband. Let's see the 1/4 of U2 that you were!
Too funny though. My husband is a high school teacher and he had a Celebrity Dress Up day and all on his own he decided to go as Edge. I was impressed and thanked him profusely.....

Liesje, you look awesome!!! I'll find a pic that doesn't have my son (AKA Larry) in it and post later.

and I agree w/ whoever said that rafiennes looks more like the B man than he who shall not be named. (not Voldemort!)
