I need to take the kid on a school field trip to the pumpkin patch today. We've already been to so many apple orchards, pumpkin patches, haunted farmer's markets, and spectral cider mills this year, I don't know if I can take another goddamn hay ride. If I make it back, I should have a real post up later this afternoon.

I had intended to post my favorite Halloween story this week, but when things started getting bad for Wood's stepdad earlier this month, I wrote it up knowing I wouldn't be able to post anything else for a few days. If you haven't read the haunted house story, that's good, because I originally wanted it to be read today. Please read it. It's not just about ghosts & such. There are hookers, too.

And this year Juniper chose her own costume(s), without any input from us. She couldn't decide between Medusa or a robot, so we're going to do both (one for school and one for trick-or-treating). You can imagine how delighted I was.
