On Halloween I wore a khaki safari-style shirt and a pith helmet to school. I figured that if any of the students asked who I was supposed to be, I'd say "Henry Morton Stanley" or "Howard Carter" or "Captain Jeffrey T. Spaulding."

Three boys approached me immediately upon my arrival. "Who are you supposed to be?" asked the first one.

"I know!" immediately shouted the second. "You're that guy from TV who got eaten by a stingray!"

"Oh yeah, Steve Irwin!" added the third.

Eaten by a stingray. No worries, mate, they'll never forget you now!
