The Halloween Grinch

I don’t hate many things.  Hitler, sure.  Cancer – check.  Drivers who don’t give you the little “Thank you!” wave when you let them merge in front of you.  Oh, hells yeah!  Other than that, though, I’m a pretty loving guy.

But I HAAAAAAAATE dressing up for Halloween.

Hate.

I haven’t done it in decades.

Since I was about 10 years old, I have been a proud Halloween Grinch.  I don’t like all the skulls and skeletons.  I don’t like haunted houses.  I don’t like those awful “Let’s Kill Teenagers” movies that come out every late October.  I don’t like pumpkins and candy corn.  I don’t even like candy all that much.

But you know what I do like?  More than anything?  What I love with all my heart?

My kids.

Happy Halloween everyone!

  1. After seeing a picture of Drew in costume,I said -what one does for his children…but you said it so much better than I could. I am with you , I am not a big fan of Halloween but even I would have dressed up for those little angels. I am so proud of you and Drew, Jerry. Thanks for being great Dads

  2. I think I’ve discovered an actual time machine.

    Children.

    How on earth did they get so grownup so fast???

    They must have bent the time/space continuum.
