Sponsored by Keith A. Veres, CPA, CGMA Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest, says the Lord ..."Your faith has saved you; go in peace."
It's funny, isn't it? One day you're beating yourself up for buying the Harry Potter Halloween costume instead of making it ... and the next day, POOF! The need for Halloween costumes has disappeared like magic.
Dark arts magic, if you ask me.
It's just weird, adjusting to a suddenly quiet, uncluttered house. Especially when you're used to having a dozen swimmers in your kitchen eating pasta.
Or two very silly high school seniors dressed and acting like octogenarians (see photo).
Or a handful of kids huddled around the TV, watching the NBA finals as you make popcorn and Tollhouse bars.
Or just one very expressive boy human, blaring the latest Childish Gambino song at volume level 842.
It makes you so doggone sad, you decide you just don't want to face the little trick-or-treaters this year. You figure you can just work late and pretend it's already November when Halloween rolls around.
And just when you're about to board up the house from the inside out so you can be a hermit and watch Bravo 24/7 without judgement; you see them. The adorable trio of little girls who live next door.
And just like that, your heart melts like a Reese Cup in a hot car on a sunny day..and you decide to stock up on mountains of Halloween candy --and buy a pumpkin so you can roast the seeds --and put out the fall decorations, after all.
Besides, you can always drop a few hundred Fun Size Kit Kats and some pumpkin seeds in the mail and ship them off to your favorite college freshman, if you want.
