Last Halloween Moments
F (whispered sleepily from his bed): Daddy, don’t make me eat anymore candy tonight.
D (smiling): Okay. Fisher, I would never make you eat any candy.
F: Because I don’t want to, Daddy. I already brushed my teeth.
Daddy pats him on the head before turning to lift fifty pounds of dead weight that is his sister into her bed.
F (quietly as Daddy makes his exit): Happy Halloween, Daddy.
D: Happy Halloween, Fisher Bug.
The door closes.
