My October Pals

An Altoids Smalls tin, with my fingers for scale.

A doctor, a devil, a pumpkin head, a skeleton, and a witch walk into a scene during the month of October. The skeleton asks for a glass of almond milk, and the witch passes him a glass and a mop.

Altoids smalls with a doctor, a devil, a pumpkin head, a skeleton, and a witch.
