Halloween kind of crept up on me this year. Actually, it does that every year, but this year was especially bad. I've been preoccupied with work and a few other projects. All day, I kept forgetting it was Halloween. My son had to remind me send him to school in his costume, my husband had to remind me to take him (son, not husband) Trick-or-Treating to Grandma's house...it just wasn't on my radar this year.
On my lunch hour I went downtown, completely oblivious to the fact that it was Halloween. I almost caused a three lane pile up craning my neck to look at some big, burly guy walking into Starbucks wearing bright pink ballet slippers and a tutu.
Oh yeah, it's Halloween. Whew. I thought I was going to have to look for a new coffee shop to hang out at.
