when i was a little ghoul, my family and i would go to my grandmother's
house to trick or treat in the neighborhood where my mom grew up.
believe it or not, my favorite part of the spooktacular holiday was not
dressing up, or the bag full of candy we came home with, but sitting on
my grammy's queen-sized bed, side by side with my sisters, brother
and cousins, watching gram's taped version of michael jackson's "thriller."
