A Mask Over My Mask

Here it is four in the morning, have yet to fall asleep. I started thinking about the irony I will be faced with later on today as we prepare to take the little one trick or treating. I will be wearing a mask over the mask I wear everyday. So, I’ll have on two masks, my Halloween mask and my happy face mask. Go figure. As much as I’d rather stay locked in my room where I feel safe and secure, I have to stuff those feelings down and not be selfish so that my little one can enjoy and participate in the spirit of Halloween. I just hope anxiety doesn’t show up uninvited. We’ll see I guess. For now, I guess I’ll just keep thinking about it until my mind decides to think of something else. Till then, Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it.




  1. Ugh, I was with you last night. Woke up with stomach pains and couldn’t go back to sleep. Hope I get my second wind in time for the Halloween party I’m going to tonight!

    • Oh no. I hope you feel better soon and can get a little more rest before the big party tonight. Will you be dressing for the ocassion?


      • Yeah, I don’t really nap unless I’m dead tired but being that I got a few hours it’s unlikely. I just kind of go through the day feeling a bit zombified (which I guess suits the occasion.)

        Well sorry to be a party pooper but I don’t really dress up on Halloween. Actually, I’ve always been one for dressing up an every day occasions, so much so in my younger days that I was often asked, ‘what, is it Halloween?’ So that’s it…every day is Halloween. (Plus also saves a lot of time and money!!)


      • I hear ya. I do love to dress for Halloween because I’m not much of a fashion anything in real life, so it’s fun for me once a year. Have a great time.

  2. Your little one as in your kid? Or just a kid you love and help take care of? Sorry if it’s super personal but I’m a nosy motherfucker
