First push of the Season…  My favorite Etsy shop is stocked with my personal favorite scent – Anise & Clove (alternate name:  H A L L O W E E N).  We’ve been burning these all year long, and it’s been helping keep that Halloween feeling around during the awful Summer months of heat and humidity.

And this year she has added a new product:  Anise Lip Balm
Halloween flavored smooches after I buy a couple for me and Bean.

The shop owner wanted me to mention her discount codes on all orders (and she named one after me! ha):

Coupon Code ROT20 will save 20% on orders $20 and up.

Coupon Code REPEAT15 saves 15% on any size order.

♥♥ HOW TO APPLY A COUPON CODE:
1) When you are finished shopping, you will be on the ETSY check out page.

2) On the right, you will see where you check for a credit card or PayPal.
✔ the payment plan you want to use.

3) DIRECTLY UNDER PAYPAL (still in ETSY) you will see “apply shop coupon code” Click on that.

4) Type the coupon code and hit “apply”. Your invoice will be adjusted BEFORE you pay.

5) If you have a problem, please let me know BEFORE ordering.

Had a weird Halloween memory pop into my head.
Back when I was in something like seventh grade, and I guess approaching one of the last years a kid goes trick-or-treating, a bunch of us decided to go out as a pack.  We figured we’d meet up at my house, so a small horde of us quickly formed and my parents insisted on a group photo.  I previously mentioned that my costumes back in those days were LITERALLY last-minute.

I was Trash Bag.  A stupid trash bag….just some holes for my legs, arms, and head.  Really dumb.  One of the guys was dressed as a girl.  Pretty funny and an impressive makeup job.  The odd thing about this guy was that he had almost no sense of humor and a very short fuse.  So any comment or funny goof from any of us about his costume was met with instant anger and short-tempered shouts like “GETOFF!”

Which brings me to Dr. Dingledong.

One of the kids showed up wearing a curly wig, rainbow suspenders, and some bright clothing.  This guy was pretty funny every other day of the year, so this was quite the scream seeing him like this.  And imagine Robin Williams if he were really short and kinda stocky, and had a voice that sounded like he was a chain smoker.  And then imagine this being in the form of a ten or eleven year old kid.

So we’re all getting ready for this stupid group photo and my dad asks this short kid what he’s supposed to be.  In his scratchy almost-Wolfman-Jack kinda voice, he blurts “DOCTOR DINGLEDONG!”  Man, we all howled.  And it turns out that Dr. Dingledong had a thing for pretty girls.  So he plopped down next to the kid dressed as an [angry] girl and his hand slowly started to creep towards her [angry] knee.

We’re all frozen for the photo and the Girl shouts “COME ON! DON’T TOUCH ME! GET OFF!!!” and stands up after shoving the kid.  Dr. Dingledong apologizes and we all form again for the group photo.  Dr. Dingledong slowly turns to his right to face the Girl.  And then slowly starts to lean in… lips puckered.  Another fit of anger and shoving and shouting.  With the rest of us howling.

I have no idea if a photo was ever snapped, but one of these days I’m going to get the old photo album from my parents’ house and find that photo if it exists.

Here’s to Dr. Dingledong.
