Asa loves Curious George. Originally, this was the plan for his costume. And to make sure people knew he wasn't just any monkey, I thought we should make Mike the Man in the Yellow Hat. Asa was set on this idea! For days he would go around telling everyone, "I be Curious George and Dada be the Man in the Yellow Hat! What you be be?" Yes, two "bes." Then Naphtali mentioned Johnny Cash but Asa was set on George, so we did one for the Fall Carnival and one for Trick or Treating. And Mike dressed up!
Mike was quite the hit with little kids downtown. Every kid we'd pass would point and say, "Look the Man in the Yellow Hat!" What a great dad.
