Hi!  It’s me!  Lily!

I’m writing early today because I have some stuff to say.  But isn’t that why I always write?  But the most important thing is, I got Dave GOOD last night.  At about midnight, I went down to the kitchen and started banging some pans rhythmically.  I waited until I heard the bedroom door open, then I hid.  Poor guy jumped out of his slippers! “HAPPY HALLOWEEN!”, I yelled.

“Good one,” he said, after he calmed down.  And yawned.  “Oh, and Lily?  Watch your back.”

Oh no.  What have I done.  Sabby is a force of nature, but Dave is a little different.  He gives as good as he gets.  I guess I’m just going to resign myself to my fate.

I didn’t bring up Halloween last night.  It’s a little bit of a big deal in the Smith house – they do decorate and all that, and they have a bowl of candy waiting for trick-or-treaters, though far fewer show up right now because of the virus.  I’ll help out if asked, but it doesn’t really mean much to me.  See, I have a theory.  I think most people love holiday celebrations because of their memories as a child.  Children dress up in costumes and go door to door for candy, then they grow up, and because their parents have such good memories, they pass them down to their kids.  I don’t have those memories!  So it doesn’t even occur to me at all to make a big deal of it!  Does it make me sad?  Yes, very much so.  But there’s nothing to be done about it, so I’ll just cope as much as I can.  Dave and Sabby are understanding, though.  They let me participate as much as I want.  Or, in Dave’s case, he doesn’t have much of a choice.  Muahahahaha!

But pranking Dave is fun.  Until he gets me back.  Oh man am I gonna regret this!

Well, I should go run.  The days are getting shorter, but cooler.  Summers here are awful, but the winters mostly make up for it all.

Love you all!!! ❤️
