the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Join the bark side

I know you want to shoot me for that title, but if you are honest with yourself you will admit that you would not have been able to resist it either.

Here is the twelve-year-old Former Congressman participating in our Halloween festivities. My hand is mangled after all of this, and I will probably not ever be able to hold a pen or an eating utensil ever again in my life. But holy shit, this was worth it.

    Move over NPH & Co, this might just win Halloween 2014. Totally worth the wait.

    We put our dog in this same costume! We couldn’t convince him to wear the hat without having a face like he was being horribly tortured WHY GOD WHY, so we just let him wear the body part of it. We had to safety pin it to his raincoat to keep it on him. Yes, he has a raincoat. He’s a very patient dog.

That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
