Hallow Evening

Thank you for the comments on my previous post. Your words always matter to me, and the insightfulness of virtual strangers never ceases to amaze and amuse.

What a funky Halloween it's shaping up to be. I remember as a kid looking forward to sugary booty being doled out freely. What fun it was picking out a costume and a pillow case strong enough to haul the mountains of candy I had planned to score. Remember how fast the rumors about houses giving out full-size candy got around?

Now I'm a boring grown-up and a low-carb freak, so the holiday is looking pretty dull. The opposite of last year: Freezing in the pouring rain in West Hollywood... that was scary. The weather wasn't the only thing that made it miserable. Had to cart home a drunk friend as he hurled insults at gay people. Glad we made it out alive.

Yeah, this year I will enjoy a nice, peaceful evening at home... Handing out full-size candy bars.
