I hope you all had a fun Hollows day filled with lots of chewy and chocolate candy and many-a-scares.
(By the way, there is no food allowed in my district so I’ve had not one piece of candy, chocolate, or sweetness at all today – and let me tell you, I’m feeling pretty great right now!)

With that, I leave you with a video of my favorite talk show host scaring the sh*t outta her guests.
Gets me every time.  Enjoy!
