#tbt Halloween Edition

Four score and seven years ago, that cat/zombie/superhero/________ costume that you’ll be freezing your buns off in this Halloween was not even a twinkle in your eye. Those were the good ol’ days. Your report card was all +’s and ✓+’s and your biggest worry was getting the extra credit word on your Friday spelling test right.

Back then Halloween was the greatest holiday ever. You got to dress up all fancy in a child’s size small costume, stay out late trick-or-treating house to house and get chocolate wasted. Now what we do is … dress up all fancy in child’s size small costumes, stay out late going house to house and get (chocolate?) wasted. And our biggest worry is whether we’ll actually wake up in time for our midterm Friday. OK, maybe Halloween hasn’t changed all that much, but it’s still awesome. So sit back, relax and chow down all 12 of those pumpkin-shaped cookies your roommate convinced you to buy from Ralphs as we celebrate this Throwback Thursday in Halloween style!
