I woke up early to work on a halloween powerpoint for class. I was feeling a bit hungover. With a boiled egg in my front pocket, I walked to school. The egg kept me warm but occasionally made me smell like fart throughout the day.

Halloween morning. Amissa woke up to make me an egg sandwhich. I went to work. Amissa would meet me at my school at 12:30pm for the holiday celebration. This kids were excited. The day before Juan had given me a strange pirate/vampire costume. Amissa came by at exactly 12:30pm. The school scheduled thirty minutes of dress-up time. I put on my costume and used make-up to draw a mustache and sharp eyebrows. Amissa and I walked around the playground as the kids played various games. The soundtrack to Nightmare Before Christmas played in the background. We left early. It was cold.
We walked home. People stared at the make-up still on my face. Upon arrival to our flat, Alex gave me a bottle of Alceno’s rosé wine. Amissa made me a birthday bocadillo with grilled onions. I rested a bit before returning to school for my afternoon classes.
After class, I purchased some bus tickets for Murcia for Thursday. Then, I went to Consum and bought some mozzarella. When I got home, Amissa began to cook my birthday lasagna. We sat around the table and shared the lasagna and wine with our roommates. Amissa’s first attempt at lasagna was successful, delicious, and filling.
We went to bed. We would be in Granada the next day.
