I don’t usually dress up for Halloween, but my table does! Happy Halloween, scary readers.
Can I make a few notes about Halloween this year? First, I think I saw kids being driven from house to house. Driven! I cannot even believe it. Why, back in my day, we walked miles to collect all the candy. Seriously. My brother Charlie and I were quite serious about getting a good candy haul, and I’m sure we walked miles on Halloween night, trick-or-treating our little hearts out. I love Halloween! I love candy!
Second, for the first time in my nine years of apartment-dwelling, I had trick-or-treaters show up at my door. And I had nothing to offer them, except some really old peppermints or chocolate-rum truffles. It made me so sad! But as much as I love sweets, I don’t really buy much candy. I hope one day I will live in a house and be able to host a proper, candy-distributing Halloween night. Some day…
Wait, before I go. One more photo, which I have blatantly stolen from my sister-in-law. It’s my niece and nephew in their matching tiger costumes. I just melt every time I look at this photo.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
