Torture & Torment

The Penis Chronicles presents, “Torture & Torment.”

Halloween has long been one of my favourite celebrations of the year. Graveyards, skeletons, ghosts, haunted houses, black cats, witches, bats, goblins, ghouls, spider webs and more; who doesn’t love it?

Now let’s talk torture and torment.

When I became a mother Halloween took on a new twist and shifted from haunted and scary to “oh so cute” as I enjoyed dressing my babies up in costumes they didn’t want to wear. Below is that first face of Halloween capturing a look of torture and torment.

  1. My ex used to make all of my son’s and daughter’s costumes. They were always fun and got the kids loved them. As they got older she stopped, doing this. We still got to enjoy Halloween enough times, with or without costumes.
