As usual, I have the wholesome and boring Halloween of a suburban Housewife. My Halloween Consisted of visiting a little get together a few days before Halloween to see Little Tokyo’s shindig. Always a letdown. My sister went as a clown, her greatest fear and enemy. The day of Halloween, I ran errands per usual and by nightfall, I snapped in some fangs, put my little darling in her costume, gathered the clown and went to buy and hand out candy. Only to stop at my starbucks and grab a tea and coffee.
But, Little Tokyo has 2 of my favorite things, the only things bringing me back.
Number one: Matcha!
On September 20th, it was my birthday, again…. the dread. This year, like last year, there was a place for me to focus on other than age. I was able to celebrate in a manner that I didn’t know I would enjoy so much. The near entirety of the day was with my little love, Amoura, and I. And that was all. I didn’t expect anything out of the day other than the ophthalmologist, I expected just another routine day but somehow, I managed to find it most enjoyable.
