Life 101 – Create a memory

One of my greatest childhood Halloween memories (besides winning the local costume contest as a dog catcher) is opening our door to the “Trick or Treat” of a golden-aged couple wearing Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia masks. “Aren’t you a little old for this?” my dad asked the pair. Luke and Leia shook their heads no, took some candy with their wrinkled hands, and then took off their masks and said, “Boo!” My grandparents in a surprise visit. (And for my Pop’s 90th b’day, at left, my brother and I tried out their trick.) It’s a happy reminder that the seemingly little moments live on. I’m going to say it again: Do something crazy fun this Halloween.
