Halloween Blog Hop
So I’m back from Limbo for a very special reason: SMP is doing a Halloween blog hop and it’s just too much fun to say no to. And what’s in it for you? Free books, jewellery and cool stuff.
That’s right, leave a comment and you’ll be automatically running for a tremendous giveaway and the final draw will take place at SMP http://stillmomentspub.blogspot.com/2012/10/halloween-blog-hop.html on October 26th!
Now for my part on this deal: A piece on Halloween (which is actually a true life story)
When I was invited to Joana’s Halloween party, I was psyched. Back in Brasil we don’t have Halloween per say (it’s not really part of our culture), but we do have some great Halloween parties imported from the US of A.
Problem was, which costume should I choose?
Now, I’ve always loved Batman, from age six to right now. Other girls liked My Little Ponies and Barbies while I dreamed of defending Gotham city from the scum that infested it.
“What about poison ivy?” Mom asked. “You could go as poison ivy.”
I shook my head, arms crossed.
“Ok, I know; Batgirl. She is so pretty, sweetheart.”
Head shake again.
“How about Catwoman? She’s powerful and strong.”
“Moooom!” I whined.
Mom breathed out in exasperation. “Fine.”
When Joana’s mom answered the door bell on that Halloween night, she came across a figure. A symbol. A myth.
“Oh, and what are you supposed to be, dear?” She asked, bending over her knees.
I spread my batwings wide and said in a low voice, “Lady, I’m your worst nightmare.”
