oh joy

Sometimes joy comes in a blue wrapper and offers up sweet memories of Halloweens past, of plastic pumpkin buckets full of candy and polyester costumes depicting cartoon characters, of the year a friend disguised as a pirate popped out and scared our bunny pajama-clad baby to tears. Some traditions we may outgrow, but never the hot dogs for dinner on Halloween night, a pop of bright orange color in the day's outfit and the palm-sized happiness of an Almond Joy.
