Sure we’re into the holiday season proper now, but some of us are still talking about Halloween, so deal with it! Also I did just stumble across this site, like, yesterday, so it counts.
For all the bad that the Internet has brought into our lives, I cannot but be thankful for it. In so many ways it is a godsend. I liken it to a sewer wherein are hidden diamonds. You can find the gemstones, but you’re gonna have to wade through a lot of crap to do it. Still, when you find one of particular value, it’s worth it. It’s totally worth it.
One of my favorite Halloween memories from my childhood was the year I went as a werewolf. I bought—and by this I mean that my mother bought it for me—a werewolf makeup kit at the local Kroger’s. I had long since forgotten the company that made that makeup kit, but I could still see the packaging in my mind’s eyes. And I for sure didn’t forget how the makeup looked on my little boy face that Halloween when I wore it.
Scrolling through the sewer yesterday, completely by accident, I found that makeup kit. It was made by Paas, the company most known for Easter Egg dye. There, glimpsed for the first time in forty years, was my werewolf. Yeah, it looks hokey now, but back then—and for me, still—it’s the bomb!
