My dad totally did this when I was growing up. Not so much the note on the door but he would lock me out, for sure. I've done my share of hanging out in tyhe driveway until the next morning when my Dad would let me back in. I love you, Dad!
Kids dressed up for Halloween as Napoleon & Kip; Also, their expressions fit their characters PERFECTLY (unless of course, the Kip kid is depressed by his costume, and the Napoleon kid is totally confused by his) !
