Halloween Is Coming

September 22, 2005

There are already signs that Halloween approaches. (My favorite holiday, ever.) I was shopping in Target for a clothing hamper. And there it was… ghoulish sounds, coming from the distance. The child inside me remembers. And my eyes glare like a zombie craving brains. My body turns in the direction of the repetitious screaming. When I enter the forbidden area, I have to play with every creepy battery-powered contraption. There is a trick-or-treat bowl that snatches back at you. And a coffin that pops open with the scariest face you ever saw, just like at the haunted amusement park rides. But what I really want is the gargoyle statue to greet trick-or-treaters. So I grab it. I never get the hamper.
