Halloween Show and Tell

This week on the Spin Cycle, they’re doing a Halloween recap. Here’s my Halloween, in brief.

It started off well enough. Two weeks before Halloween, I was invited to a pumpkin carving party. I like to think they turned out pretty well.


My prepared pumpkin, ready for cutting!


Do you recognize mine?

Five days later, my pumpkin was rotting into mush, so I threw it into the trash.


Just days before the mush set in


That’s okay, I thought. I’ve got another–uncarved–pumpkin. It will last until Halloween.

The night before Halloween, I picked up my uncarved pumpkin to move it into a more prominent position. It had rotted so badly it left a stain on the spot where I’d placed it. I guess that’s what I get for not putting a plate under it.

On Halloween, I bought some candy: one allergy-friendly kind and one kind I actually like. Guess how many trick-or-treaters I got? None. It never fails. On years when I don’t buy candy, someone knocks on my door. When I do buy candy, no one shows.

Who wants some gummy candy? I’m keeping the Mounds for myself. 🙂

    I had trouble with my pumpkins rotting this year, too. I wonder why? We had less trick-or-treaters than usual, but we still had plenty ring the doorbell, too. It was cold!
