Ainslie Paton finds Halloween simply unsuitable to her Aussie beach side suburb. Which proves a tricky segue to the fact she’s got a new book out called Unsuitable.
There isn’t a single mention of Halloween in Unsuitable, or any Ainslie Paton books. They are however all treats.
A knock at the door. I answer.
A small Batman and a sparkly fairy stand there.Me: Ah, hello
Them: Trick or treat?
The fairy: You have to give us lollies or fruit
Batman: Or a toy maybe
Me: Um. Well. I don’t have any lollies in the house and I haven’t been shopping, so I don’t have any fruit either
Batman: But you have toys?
Me: Um. Not. No. No. I’m sorry. So this is a trick on me then, that’s okay, yes?
The Fairy: That’s not how it works. No one gets it.
Batman: This sucks.
They leave. Very disappointed.
