This Halloween, the various teaching departments of Wayne Hills High School, where I am employed as a literature, writing, and philosophy teacher, are celebrating Halloween. Each department is picking a theme and members are developing costumes that reflect that theme. The English Department, my department, has chosen to dress as idioms. Not idiots! We are dressing as idioms.
An idiom is cut the cheese
My idiom? I’ve decided to represent Don’t Cry Wolf. My plan? I want to assemble a costume that, at least to a degree, resembles a werewolf or a wolfman; however, said werewolf or wolfman will have a prominent tear falling from its eye.
Hopefully, I can pull this off. Wish me luck.
