Halloween for Introverts

Does it seem like there’s a lot of introvert “literature” floating around lately?  (I’m using the term “literature” lightly because I am totally talking about Buzzfeed articles…)  I feel like I scroll past one every time I go on Facebook.  And as a proud introvert, I could not be happier.  It is the era of the introvert, hear me roar!  (Or maybe don’t because I think the definition of an introvert is someone who doesn’t roar…)

Anyway, my point is that even though Halloween is on a Friday, I’m embracing my introverted ways, and staying in to watch Interview with the Vampire (because I just finished the book this week and because I’m choosing to ignore my mother’s warning that the movie is terrible), carve a pumpkin, drink an Apple Cider Shandy and do that thing that newbie homeowners get to do on Halloween… hand out candy to tiny Trick-or-Treaters.  Rejoice!


And because sort of grown ups like to have fun too, I’m going to do this all in my “I-threw-this-together-and-am-counting-it-as-a-costume” costume.  We’re the King and Queen of Hearts, thus marking only the second time ever that Joey and I have done a “couples costume.”  I feel like that deserves some kind of award.






Oh and I’m going to pretend that having a 7 AM flight is the reason I’m not staying out all night at some hot Halloween party, but we all know the real reason.  Viva la introvert!
