Yesterday I finished the second out of five posts on how to dress the different body shapes. I hope you guys are enjoying the new series.

We are still undecided about Halloween for this year. Merle wants to give it a shot and see if there are many houses to go to, but she wants us to have some backup candy just in case.

Tom is far more optimistic about people participating than I am. He wanted to go to the Haunting at Canada’s Wonderland but I can’t do scary with zombies walking around.

And while Merle can play scary videogames, last year when we went to the drive-through haunted house, she hit the floor of the car when we passed the first section and didn’t get up until the dinosaur at the end.

So I am going with no for her.

She is a panic runner so all I need is for her to get lost at Canada’s Wonderland in the dark.

Several years ago when we went to the regular Wonderland during the day we were cooling off in the water section. I was standing off to the side holding everyone’s shit while they were running around and getting wet.

Merle, Tom and Roo were all standing under this giant bucket of water. They were oblivious to the loud bell sound that was warning that it was going to dump, and while I was screaming a warning too (because I knew she would freak), it poured cold water all over their heads.

In the blink of an eye, she wasn’t there anymore.

It was like she teleported out of fear. I was scared shitless looking for her and then saw a group of people standing around in a circle waaaaay far from us and I spotted her in the middle. She was crying and they were trying to help her.

Seriously though, she teleported.

  1. Our Halloween festivities have so far been limited to binge watching Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episodes. Not really sure how appropriate it is for a five year old, but she’s asked for it and I don’t have the energy to do anything else. She’s had this week off school and I took it off work, had so many fun things planned, most of it we can do on weekends, but there’s a really tiny theme park that is closing for the season after tomorrow. Blech. At least I’m vaxxed though, could be way worse.

    Jack White apparently really loves my home town, he’s got a house there, donates a lot of money to local groups. He really loves this burger place called Webers. There’s also a new Scorcese movie filming there, so everyone back home keeps reporting sitings of Jack white, or DiCaprio or De Niro. John Lithgow was the most recent, and Brendan Fraser has joined the cast, so I’m sure someone’s going to see him soon.
