I’ve got a whole ‘nother thing to tell you about, but it’s going to have to wait a few days because today is for costumes and candy and I know you just don’t have the attention span for anything else. Also, I need your help.
Bur first, a bribe! Well, more a brag than a bribe. I’ll show you my pumpkins!
I only did two this year, because I ended up waiting until yesterday to carve them.
I know, there’s something wrong with me. A lot, actually. Too much to go into here, for sure… but at least I come with my own sound track! I’ve got a halloween playlist on amazon music that includes all the standard stuff plus instrumental versions of some favorites and just some creepy music with screams and chains and the like – a great soundtrack if you’re running a haunted house, or just working in one and trying to keep your spirits up on your days off.
ME: (entering kitchen, phone in hand)
HIM: I’m glad there’s spooky music that plays when you come into the room. It seems appropriate, somehow.
HIM: (laughing) You don’t even know how to take that, do you?
ME: No, I know. And you’ll get it later.
He later compared it to the Imperial March, signaling the arrival of Darth Vader. Hmph.
Also, if you’re looking for reasons to be jealous of me, I’ve got this going on at my desk right now:
Okay, now on to the important bit: I want to do a trick-or-treat drinking game – since I’ll be home for the little urchins – but I’ve no clue what costume has infested our youth this year. Remember two years ago, when you could get sauced in ten minutes by taking a drink every time an Elsa showed up at your door? I’m looking to re-create that experience, but this year I’m prepared: I’ve got you!
So hook me up: what costume was flying off the low-lying shelves this year?
