Halloween is growing near and I find myself drawn to these hideous looking creatures. I want to find some good underneath their warty faces, straggly hair, and sickly pallor. I want to have them for tea. I bet they have something interesting to say, like perhaps, “Pass the snake blood and creamed eyeballs.”
As Halloween icons they’ve done well over the years. What girl hasn’t been a witch for Halloween? My favorite witch costume was when I dressed up as Mrs. Which from A Wrinkle in Time by Madleine L’Engle. I enjoyed rreeeaaaadddinnngggg heerrrr allouddd tooo chilllldreeeeen (That’s how she talks! Clevverrrrrr). Remember when she tried to land Meg and crew on the second dimension? Ouch.
