His best friend Sam asked Ethan what costume he would be wearing to the school’s Halloween party when Ethan told Sam he wasn’t going, and when Sam asked him why not, Ethan admitted that his family was so poor that they were unable to give him any money to buy a costume.
Sam told him Ethan to just drape an old shirt over his head and to walk around as if he were a zombie.
“Yeah, I can do that,” Ethan said, taking off his flannel shirt, placing it over his head, and demonstrating his best zombie pose for Sam.
