In just ten days, it will be time for the ghouls and goblins and whatnot to show up at our doors begging for candy. And so the question arises, what will you do? What will you do?
Me, well, I fully intend to put on a tacky, ridiculous horror film (possibly in the Edward D. Wood Jr. catalogue) where it won’t make any difference whatsoever when I lose track of the marginal plot, fill a big bowl with candy, and spend the whole night running to the door handing out miniature candy bars to the kids who arrive on my doorstep.
When the candy starts running out, I’ll shut off the porch light, point and laugh at the television as I consume the last couple peanut butter cups, and then go up and try to calm my cat who will be climbing the walls with horror.
But I know mine is far from the only way to celebrate the holiday. So I’m wondering: what are you going to be up to this All Hallow’s Eve? Tending trick or treaters? Going trick or treating yourself? Boozing it up at an adult party? Ignoring the whole sorry mess? Praying for our immoral immortal souls?
Give it to me straight. I can take it.
