Today is Halloween, but I forgot to take pictures. It was dark and I was holding an infant and fixing Reed’s costume every five minutes. I had to hold him down while he whined to draw on his mustache. But it was worth it. He took to trick-or-treating. I did, too. I like being out at night. I like being out on foot. I like seeing porch-lights on and people answering doors happy to see you.
I never really got into Halloween. It seemed like a lot of work, really, the pumpkins, the costumes. I didn’t get it. I get it now.
Next year, there will be pumpkin carving. And pumpkin pancakes.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
