Trick Or Threat
Second year in a row I missed Halloween.
Then again, I already live in the House of the Spirits.
I missed the Halloween parties and my EB with engel and Ternie. And I hate not being able to keep my word. But as I told you, mon cher Ternie, my itinerary was most def out of my grubby little hands.
And don't worry, engel, I got your preciouuuusssssssssss...I've also still got your essential oils, Ternie, except I hope they haven't evaporated like disembodied spirits.
Otherwise, it'll have to be the thought that counted.
Anyway, lest I be accused of taking the hallow out of the ween, someone asked me why I don't go to the cemetery on All Souls' Day.
I replied that:
1. My dearly departed aren't there anymore. Just their remains.
2. They wouldn't know if I went, anyway.
3. I remember and think of them even when it's not All Souls' Day.
4. Sometimes, they're the ones who visit me.
And actually, as Trench so helpfully pointed out, it was All Saints' Day yesterday.
Today was All Souls' Day.
