The spouse, muttering in the pantry: "I thought you said you bought Halloween candy."
Me, working feverishly at my computer, trying to write a blog entry: "I did."
More rummaging noises from the pantry.
The spouse: "Well, where is it?"
Me: "It's not Halloween."
Grumpy noises from the pantry.
Me: "It's on the floor, by the wine rack."
Further rummaging noises.
The spouse, incredulous: "This?"
He is waving a package of gummi body parts at me.
The spouse: "And this?"
An enormous bag of Dum-Dums.
The spouse: "You call this Halloween candy?"
Me: "I call it the kind I won't eat."
Go listen to some good music: "Grim Grinning Ghosts," lyrics by X. Atencio and music by Buddy Baker.
