In The Blood

My granddaughter went shopping or a Halloween costume, on I kid you not, Stephen King’s birthday.

If you’re not a King fan then that probably means nothing to you but if have read every book Stephen King has ever written and you have collected them one by one by one for over 30 years then that will mean something to you.

It means a lot to me.

So to kick off Mr King’s Birthday, Jemma tried on the demon bunny mask first. I don’t think Stephen King has written about demonic bunnies but he’s probably dreamed about them. I mean, who hasn’t?

But then in a world of Disney Princesses and Disney Heroines and Youtube superstars that she adores

Jemma decided on this costume-

For Halloween, 2022 my Granddaughter, the apple of my eye and the brightest star in the sky ( well, she and Hamish my dog- it’s a big sky so that’s okay ) decided to be Pennywise the clown from “It”.

I’m not sure why Stephen King’s Pennywise appeals to Jemma – maybe it’s something in our blood.

Best Guess.

I know that as the years and days and months go on Jemma will make me proud of her every single day, but on this day- on this 39th day before Halloween I can’t imagine being more proud of her then I am right now.
