NAJAH encounters a young fellow of similar age who is also dressed as the SPIDER-MAN.
ME, joyfully: Spiders-men!
YOUNG FELLOW OF SIMILAR AGE: You scary?
NAJAH shakes his head.
YFOSA: No. Spider-man no scary!
CLAIRE: I’m not a cat. I’m a werewolf. I’m a werewolf! I’m not a cat! I’m not a cat, I’m a wolf.
ME, accompanying JULIA across a particularly terrifying front yard: There’s a severed limb! There’s another one! Tombstones! A giant rat! Are these demons guarding the door? OH MY GOD THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THERE WATCHING ‘HOME IMPROVEMENT.’ AAAARG NOW TIM ALLEN IS ON!
ME: At least it wasn’t Shatner.
ADA: That lady said that my costume was “very creative.” It was either a compliment… OR AN INSULT.
DANNY: I’m afraid Ada’s Nefertiti hat will fill up with rain.
JEREMY: She should fill it up with candy.
ME: It’s the inundation of the Nile.
