We’re half way through October, so it might be the point in the month where you start making your Halloween plans. Have you considered a Weeny Witch party? Don’t you love “barrels of fun”? It’s my favorite unit of fun!
And ok, my ideal party is just me dancing around, scream-singing the soundtrack to Newsies in my pajamas, eating shrimp tacos, so maybe my idea of a barrel of fun doesn’t include anthropomorphized wieners. But look at their faces! They seem into it!
Your friends won’t think it’s weird. They might say, “this is weird,” but they’re not thinking it.
“That’s the perfect place for a showdown of mythical creatures! On the ground a foot to the left! Wouldn’t want you to move or anything!”

“All my friends were like, ‘it’s not a good look. Don’t do it.’ And then I was like, ‘gimme that toilet paper!’ And I was right. And I’m pretty mostly sure I was right….Guys, I don’t think I was right. How do I get out of this?”
Welcome to the second round of Spooky Sundays! For last year’s, check them out here.

I’m not going to lie. Sometimes brunch with the girls gets weird.
When you remember you don’t have to work today, you must find your best pair of kickin’ jeans. And if you can’t find them, I’m sure Target keeps their kickin’ jeans well stocked.
Just don’t ask for kicking jeans. And don’t even think about binding your legs. Talk about embarrassing.
