Sigyn and I did not carve pumpkins last year. We were too busy and couldn’t think of anything to top the previous year’s perforated pepos. This year, we feel the urge to do a little gourd-gouging.
There are some intriguing prospects at the market. Yes, dearest, that is a fine pumpkin!
But it’s a bit…big. I think you would probably be still be carving next Halloween.
Now this one looks properly hideous and ghoulish.
Whack in a couple of eye-holes in this pumpy lumpkin and bam! Instant Quasimodo.
The human female however, is in no mood to deal with vast quantities of pumpkin guts and has procured us somewhat smaller vegetable specimens, as well as paper for planning our designs. Sigyn has something cheerful in mind.
I, of course, am in the mood for something a little more frightening. I am never without at least one instrument of stabbiness secreted about my person…
…so we are all set. Let the pumpkin perforating begin!
