Here is the pumpkin David Sedaris drew in my book at a book signing Danielle and I went to last Halloween. He drew this moments after I told him, in response to his question, that I usually spend Halloween with the lights off, pretending that I’m not at home.
Tonight, as we arrived home, the neighborhood kids were out trick-or-treating. True to form, I pretended that I wasn’t home, even though they saw us. It’s easy, really. Walk inside, lock the door, turn all lights off, pull the blinds shut. Works like a charm. The only thing showing is the pumpkin I carved.
I might be a little off in the head.
