I don't get why some people (actually lots of people) refer to it as their "favorite holiday." It's not even a holiday. Seriously-- nobody misses school or work. Banks are open, and there is not even a special meal involved. Ah uh. Not a holiday.
Also-- every year-- I try and boycott it and not dress up and then end up succumbing to the peer pressure because well, tons of people have these parties and let's face it----I've always been kind of a sucker to peer pressure. I also like to be thought of as a team player you know... I hope no one has ever referred to me as a "spoiled sport." Well, actually, I remember this one time when my siblings and I were playing Candyland with my babysitter, Becky Blue, and I drew Princess Frostine---
You know what else is a bust?
I was invited to a little wine party last night and opted to be somewhat more than fashionably late because I figured that I would have some Trick Or Treaters come by... I wanted to hand out candy and see their cutie costumes etc...
I got the good stuff. Starburst, Reeses Cups, Twix! Nobody was gonna roll MY house last night! It started sort of slowly. One tiny little Sponge Bob with his momma and then nothing for another half hour or so. Then two little devils showed up. They were seemingly siblings, and I thought it was weird that they had on the same costume you know, but whatever. The third time someone knocked on the door presented me with ANOTHER devil and then another and another and another. I'm not even making this up!
I'm not superstitious or anything. Never have been. But all those devils just started to make me feel uncomfortable... so I turned off all my lights and went and had a glass of vino at my friends' house. You know--just in case.
All this to say that while many of the Facebook posts I've seen today are lamenting the passing of yet another Halloween, I have to say that I really could not care less. However, while I usually feel that people can SIMMER DOWN with the pictures of their children on there-- I have to say that some of these Halloween Costume photos are hilarious. I'll leave you all with a picture of my little niece nugget dressed as Elmo in her sunglasses.
Yours ever, :)
