Gone are the days of cute animal and cartoon character costumes. No superheroes with capes or costumes that double as footy pajamas. Aaron hasn’t been in costume in many years – the last year was when he and several friends went trick-or-treating and then played poker with their candy. “I’ll see your Snickers and raise you a package of Lemonheads!” In case you’re wondering, that’s a red flag that they’re too old to trick-or-treat. This year John went trick-or-treating with a girl around the corner that he met on the school bus. Hopefully her parents didn’t mind that she was hanging out with a mass murderer for the evening.
