A Halloween Reflection
When the fellow in the middle was commissioned to zip my $9 Goodwill dress of infinite tightness, he gripped the zipper, started pulling up and asked only one question:
"We're going all the way up?"
Yes, dear. Have a bit of faith.
This morning, when one of my students asked how my weekend was, I thought about it and said, "It was nice."
When she asked me if I did anything for Halloween, I said (without thinking), "No... I didn't... How was your dad's haunted house?" She launched into a story about scaring children and I returned to my gradebook.
And... we're back to normal. At least for another 362 days. Sigh.
