Halloween is a little more then a month away so I have officially lost my mind and I have been busy decking my halls for the season.
So here is a family joke that reflects on my boundless enthusiasm.
Because my idea of taking down Halloween decorations is to turn anything pumpkin related with a face carved into it towards the wall and I will make my skeleton and gargoyle collections look seasonal by sticking them next to indoor plants
someone once asked my Mom:
” How do you know when it’s Halloween at Anita Marie’s house? “
And my Mom said, ” I don’ t know, how do you know when it’s Halloween at Anita Marie’s house? ” thinking she was helping deliver a punch line.
” No. Really. How do you know?”
My Mom thought about it. ” Well. It’s pretty much always Halloween wherever Marie goes.”
Knowing her daughter better then anyone since 1964
