A Halloween Story written BY my daughter FOR this blog. Is that weird?

Ever since I published her ‘Nerd Girl’ creation  (If Nerds could be Superheroes), my daughter has been hellbent on making the blog again.  She came home from school today with this Halloween composition … written just for me and (apparently) all ODNT readers.  I liked it … and found it not surprisingly offbeat.  And so, without further ado, I present to you my girl’s second blog submission  – The Mysterious Treat Trick.





If Nerds could be Superheroes …

Since I launched this project a little over a month ago, I have been struggling with using the words ‘blog’ and ‘blogger’ in my everyday conversations.  They just yell “Nerd!” to me on so many levels.  Maybe it’s my repressed feelings from years of childhood guitar camp finally coming to the surface.

So you can imagine my surprise and … let’s be honest … goofball pride when my daughter came home from school today with this masterpiece.  Apparently, she crafted it during her Science class, she says, after finishing her test.  I really hope that’s true.

I love that little nut job.
