Halloween countdown post from X-E is six years old, but it cracks me up. Matt reacquainted himself with a paint-your-own-Dracula-head kit that he had but wrecked as a kid, and gave it a shot.
Great lines from Matt's writeup: "I distinctly remember painting the thing outside, on one of those hot days where
everyone in the family lays in the backyard like giant, gregarious sloths."
"I was a damned proud Dracula, living the role of the undead, carefully
manifesting my temporarily ghoulish persona as the only boy in school who would
chew raw meat on a dare,"
