Showed Her True Colors

On Halloween, people dress up to be something they’re not on any other day of the year.  While they wear costumes to hide their true identity, some of them still show their true colors. In my neighborhood, ‘trunk or treat’ replaced the traditional ‘trick or treat.’ There was no going door-to-door doing tricks so someone…
