While walking to go indulge in extra coffee (because if, by chance, Dave Vanian IS appearing at 2:30-ish to bring me absinthe, I should make sure I’m awake enough to appreciate it), a very nice older tourist couple asked me if I was part of the vampire tour. I smiled (no, I didn’t have fangs in) and told them those only run at night.
The scene: assorted co-workers bringing their children around for Trick-or-Treating. (Thank goodness I was being super-organized and brought the candy in today.)
Two adorable small girls dressed up as vampires are ushered to my cube. I exclaim over their red & black dresses and fangs, and tell them they can have EXTRA candy.
“Favoritism!” calls one of my co-workers.
“Well duh,” replies another. “Have you seen Jillian? Of course she’s going to give the vampires extra candy.”
