My Take: By Matthew McCully

By Matthew McCully

The format of a My Take is 150 words- no more, no less- to express an opinion on a different topic each week.
This week the reporters wrote about Halloween


I know my favourite Halloween memory should be me as a kid getting a great haul of candy. I’m talking 60 plus per cent chocolate bars, a few bags of chips to balance out the sweet, and just enough rockets to remember I hate them.
Sure, the excitement of getting dressed up and the sugar highs are great memories.
But my favourite Halloween moments have happened as an adult.
Handing out the candy, seeing that excitement from the flip side, watching kids’ eyes light up as I pretend I’m blown away by the amazing costume of the seventh Elsa I’ve seen that night.
Oh, but my absolute favourite Halloween was the year I had a roommate who was a makeup artist. Clients were in and out of our apartment all night getting bullet holes, severed limbs etc… It was like Night of the Living Dead.
