One of my favorite Halloween memories is from way back in middle school. I was living in Stafford, Virginia and I think that year I was either dressed in my dad’s camouflage gear or maybe dressed as a baseball player. We lived in a the perfect neighborhood for trick-or-treating so I was allowed to walk around with a group of my friends.
I can’t remember why, but for some reason I had to go back to my house to get something. My friend Luke Miller came with me. After retrieving whatever it was, he and I went around door to door getting candy and it was so fun. I don’t think we ever caught up with our group of friends but it didn’t matter to me.
I thought it was cool that he was fine hanging out with me, since he was much cooler and I always thought of myself as just a shy kid with super crooked teeth.
Many Halloweens have come and gone since then, tons of candy consumed, but that one was a favorite Halloween from my school days!
