This New Years' I'm lucky enough to have reservations at an incredibly upscale hotel with a good friend...we will play this game very loudly in the lobby whilst we smoke cigars and drink whiskey...the first person to tell us to quiet down will get punched in the face.
"Halloween is the one night of the year when
the veil is lifted between the living and the realm of the dead. The
dead walk the earth and we have to dress up in scary costumes so they won't drag us back to Hell with them..."
Yesterday was spent on a big farm in rural Virginia..
My kid, after browsing a giant field full of orange pumpkins, found two tiny white gourds and said,"I'm ready!" and trudged back down the hill alone with a gourd in each hand...and got back on the tractor. He knows what he likes, apparently.
