Flash Fiction (a Hundred Words or Fewer) #68: The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (October 29, 1976)

Margaret Hamilton (back as the Wicked Witch of the West), Betty White (pre-Golden Girls), some disco, and (ahem) the band KISS—this hour-long special sounds gay as hell.  Too bad I never watched it.  I might have, but before I could do so, Mom suddenly drove my siblings and me to her sister’s house for an overnight stay; Aunt Inez, the intellectual, didn’t own a TV.  Since the divorce, Mom had spent time by herself to (in her words) “relax.”  Okay, she deserved to “relax,” but she’d denied me my main relaxation method.  Though her behavior did piss off Inez.
