Ah, October—our favorite time of year. The leaves are curling into their fiery canopy before falling to coat the dampening ground. The sun is sitting lower in the sky and the dark is fighting the light for dominance of the day. Small children run screaming through the streets, and passers-by only nod and smile, or spook them and continue the chain of shrieks. Kids of all ages are suddenly encouraged to take candy from strangers. And no one blinks as a large man covered in blood makes his way down the sidewalk toward the house on the corner.
Yes, sir. Life doesn’t get any better than this. If we keep our Halloween masks on, we have no trouble fitting in or being passed over with merely a glance. The neighborhood is ours, and we can start with any house we want.
TRICK OR TREAT!
