Despite being the highly stressed head of a struggling startup company, Kell doesn’t want to miss out on Coney’s formative years. So, she forced herself to get home at 6:00 so she could take her out trick or treating.
She’d already promised the mothers of Lin and Francis that the three kids would go out together, and they were dropped off at the house after dinner. Francis was a Dr. Who Tardis, Lin was an astronaut (excellent choice) and Coney was a fairy princess. After ninety minutes their bags were full.
Dad, meanwhile, stayed home to hand out treats. Rudy had his friends over, and a splendid time was had by all.
Here at the university there aren’t many kids at trick or treating age, except for professor’s kids whose costumes are always much too high-concept. One child painted himself red from head to toe and went as a Mark Rothko painting.
Now go vote!
Took care of voting last week! Yeah for mail-in ballots, boo for the noise level continuing to rise. I haven't turned on my radio or TV for the last two months (no joke). I may have to wait until after the inaugration for things to get back to normal. If not longer. Depends on how long the Tuesday evening quarterbacks keep whinging.
There's an old joke about Election Day being just after Halloween because city bosses can have zombies show up at the polls. As for waiting for the noise level to die down, I imagine it will continue on some level, at least on the human side of the portal. After a few months to lick it's wounds, the side that didn't win will be back to oppose the one that did at every turn.
That's true. I remember the time they found out that Fenton's mother was a vampire bat. Within hrs. the whole town knew. That's when most of the guests for their wedding turned chicken & refused to attend. Had they waited 24 hrs. the wedding w2ould have been over & the happy couple just leaving on their honeymoon.
