    Scary. As in, scary how well that pumpkin has been carved. What’s great about it is that w/o the Gugliotti drawing of Alphonse beside it, I think it would probably take a second for the likeness to snap into place. Visitors show up to your door and say, “Wha …?” and then, “What the hell?!?”

    Mom has always referred to her former fetuses as her “pumpkins”.
