It has always been a dream of mine to attend a ward party without ever having to get out of my car. Last night we (the activities committee) attempted to make that dream come true for the good people of the Grandview 4th ward.
"Last night?" you ask. Yes. Last night during the rain and the wind we had a Trunk or Treat Party in our church parking lot from 5-6pm during a brief (50 minutes) cessation of rain which I like to attribute to my incredible faith. We set up in the rain; We took down in the rain. But from 5pm to 6pm when people pulled into the parking lot and were greeted by our bishop with boxed dinners passed through their open windows, the weather accommodated. Dreams can come true, friends--Blissful, sloppy-joe, chips, sliced apples and caramel-dipped utensil-less dreams with a can of cold(ish) rootbeer on the side. 150 people were served [a dream] in a Styrofoam box last night. InNOut + the Gospel + Halloween? I can't even answer--I'm too choked up. Amen.
After you get your dinner you pop your trunk, see, and you trick or treat from trunk to trunk. Of course you have to dress up, since it's Halloween. I had some stuff around the house that we threw together.
Wait for it.
"I mean, Yes."
My only regrets about last night are the Unforgivable Curses I used on a few kids dressed as Dementors. They're just kids, after all.
