I was coerced asked nicely by the lovely Suzanne at the Chickens in the Road site to provide a book for a blog giveaway. You have until Sunday, Oct. 31, to enter. No, you don’t have to be in costume, but if you do dress up (for the giveaway, or for Halloween) I’d love to hear about it! This is the first year that I will not be helping a son make a costume. Teenaged boys don’t dress up. I’ll have a passel of thirteen-year olds in the basement watching as many Alien movies as they can in an evening. The teenager who can drive is avoiding the younger kids, and going off to a friend’s house where they’ll also watch movies. I’ve been told that it’ll be mortifying if I wear a costume, and although it’s part of the parents’ contract to embarrass your children, I’ve promised not to. Sigh. I will, however, leave my husband at home and spend some time on the porch of our little town’s one and only store, watching the festivities. (There’s a lot of dark streets and long scary driveways, so the little children go to the town center to trick or treat. Even the police station gives out candy.) I might even put on my google-eyed alien headband.
Meanwhile, do get over to Suzanne’s blog. I can’t wait to hear where Tillie Lays an Egg ends up!
