Me: “This was the first year that Halloween felt different to me. It felt just like any other day.”
Dad: “You mean not as special?”
Me: “Yeah, not as special.”
Dad: “You know what that means, don’t you?”
Me: “That I’m getting old.”
Dad: *laughs* “That’s right. And then you’ll have kids, and then you’ll be done with it.”
Me: “Well, if my kids are doing it, maybe I’ll still get some enjoyment out of it. And then when they’re done, maybe I can give out candy.”
Dad: “You mean to other people’s kids?”
Dad: “It’s not the same.” *laughs*
I’m really going to miss being young and learning about the world, and wondering what Halloween was all about, and why people did it, and enjoying its fun and mystique.
I can honestly say that this is one time in my life when not knowing something is actually better than knowing it.
