Happy All Saints Day! The eve was somewhere non-eventful around the 630. It seemed like there were more fireworks than trick-or-treaters. It’s just as well. All I could offer would be sunflower seeds or mints.
I read this bit in the Herald:
“At the front door, [the group of trick-or-treaters] meet 14-year-old Madeleine … wearing pink fishnet stockings, a short leopard-skin skirt and bright red lipstick.
“‘Are you Barbie?’ one of the group asks.
“Not exactly, she replies.

Which immediately reminded me of this wisdom from “Mean Girls”:
“Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”
