I always attend Halloween dinner with my friends simply because most of them really put the effort in everything—from the decorations to the food. I usually bring my niece because she loved dressing up and of course, collecting candies. Last Halloween, after all the house-to-house candy collection, we stopped by at Helena’s. She was the one who invited us for dinner and I agreed on behalf of me and my niece.
Helena’s house was as usual lavishly decorated with all kinds of Halloween decorations. But what delighted my niece the most was dinner. Helena had some delicious rice placed inside little carved out pumpkins, serving one for each of us. Even though my niece truly didn’t like pumpkins (it’s a yucky veggie!), she wholeheartedly ate hers.
The only one how didn’t eat his was Harvey, Helena’s husband and a close friend of mine. He told me he would never eat from those bowls because it’s childish. He was pouting the whole night. Just before we left, I asked him, “who’s the real childish one here?” Well, his scowl gave me the correct answer.
