Do those vampire teeth hurt? Well, too bad because it’s Halloween and time to wear them, even if they’re making you look like you need extreme orthodontics. Even if you look like you just ate a stray cat. Even if you are trying to be an animal–other than a human animal. Actually it’s fun to stop being human, right? So go ahead–be a tiger, or a wolf, or a bear or a dinosaur.
And to all you vampire grandmas: Remember the days when you were little and could transform yourself into an animal? Be a horse or a deer or a lion or a snake? I recall jumping species, becoming other. What a relief not to be human.
