except not really. i don't even like halloween.
let me rephrase that. i don't like grown up halloween. last year i tried to dress up (which i didn't even really do...) and go to parties with people "my age" and it was horrible. this year i have told myself it's not even an option. are there parties going on? oh i'm sure of it, but i have no clue where they are or who's going.
now, carving pumpkins with my cousins cute kids, a nice halloween lunch, carmeled apples and hanging out with friends (not in costume, mind you)....that's the halloween i like. walking up and down streets with little kids dressed like a princess or winnie the pooh while they collect candy to rot their teeth. sounds divine.
so this halloween, i wasn't invited to a haunted house. i didn't have to talk my way out of a haunted corn maze. i didn't even have to tell friends that i don't like to watch scary movies. do you know what that means? i have no friends. just kidding, it means that my close friends know i don't like to do that, and i've removed myself enough from other people that they would never ask me to join them on such a ridiculous outing. i was invited to run a zombie 5k, but i think it was on accident. please imagine me running a 5k with fake/real zombies chasing after me. the thought literally makes me scared to death.
so, i've survived another halloween. today will be pleasant. candy. treats. friends.
