Young girl at work: Are you getting dressed up for Halloween, Mr. SponsorPants?
Mr. SponsorPants: Me? No, not this year.
YG: Why not?
Mr. SP: Oh, I dunno. Years ago I used to put a lot into my costumes.
Mr. SP: Yeah, I planned the whole thing around...
Around being able to hide bottles on my person and drink everywhere I went. Seriously.
Mr. SP: ... the, um, the theme of wherever I was going.
YG: Oh. Did you make them from scratch?
Mr. SP: Mostly. I started planning really early for it. Like I said, it was a big deal to me.
YG: I'm making my costume this year, it's...
She goes on to describe all the planning it took, how she started working on it two weeks ago and what she did to make it.
YG: When did you used to start working on your costumes?
Mr. SP (not thinking before he speaks): Oh, usually about June, I guess. I had to figure out all the pockets, and then practice walking in...
Mr. SponsorPants suddenly looks up, aware of the Young Girl's puzzled expression. There is an awkward silence.
YG: Right. Well... I better...
she makes a vague gesture towards the front of the restaurant
Mr. SP: Sure. Yes. Right. Carry on.
