Ponies Don't Like Capes
We learned this at the Goblin Gallop. I was supposed to be bacon and Dancer would be a fried egg, but I couldn't locate my costume in the mess of my room. Instead, I dug up a cape and a pool noodle lightsaber I made. BOOM, instant (pathetic) Darth Vader. Except she hated the cape touching her. Not the noodle, though, the noodle was fine. But it was windy. So obviously, spooking happened.
I'm holding the cape around my arm so she doesn't jump. And I forgot to put my gloves on - they're in my front pocket - so that didn't help either.
But we got to jump over things afterward! And it was awesome!
