Horrifying halloween Hammond night being dragged for blocks. Freezing rain turning to flurries, yet sweating in a mask through which I could not see, having trouble breathing through the pin hole of a mouth, while the band for the mask around my neck cut like piano wire. I wore a coat that covered the already warm costume that now no one could see. I had watched enough war movies on TV that my mom claims i said; “This is like being in the Army.” Only to return home to hard taffy candy that the paper stuck to, burnt pop corn balls and Apples my mother would not allow me to eat.
Welcome to my nightmare!
