A Halloween tale of Dorothy and the Dinosaur:
Two kindergarteners in a homemade Dorothy dress and Purple dinosaur costume rush up the sidewalk.
It is the first “trick or-treat” Halloween night for my best friend, Alex, and I.
After skipping door to door, collecting chocolate, and looking for gutter monsters, we walk to our first closed door — with a giant black spider web wreath.
Alex deserts her pillowcase treat bag, runs up the walkway, snatches the decoration off the door, wriggles herself through, and dances on the front lawn while chanting, “flies no mores, spiders eat dinosaurs!”
She attracts a clapping audience.
Her mom scolds her, Alex returns the wreath, the crowd dissolves, and we hold hands whispering, “flies no mores, spiders eat dinosaurs!”
Our candy fishing resumes and my love of eerie wreaths begins
