It’s raining tonight in Northern California. It’s Halloween, and the trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood were low in numbers. Only the strong came out. They were not afraid of getting wet. Rain is just water, and I guess they got that. Gimme some candy!
Dave and I waited with candy bowl in hand, and doled out the few miniatures to the children whose parents banked on the experience, rather than the weather. I don’t know for sure, but if memory serves, my brother and I never failed to go trick-or-treating due to weather. We were hearty kids, more focused on the night’s “take” than on weather. Tonight, we have more candy in our house than we want to consume, so I’ll take it to work tomorrow. Someone will surely eat it. I will. I love Butterfingers and Milky Ways. Yum.
On my drive in to work today, before all my responsibilities kicked into gear, I heard this song on the radio. I remembered my teenage years, when the song was released, and I remembered sharing this song with Nat and Owen when they were just kids. On some levels, all of life is Spooky. Don’t you think?
