Frightening Friday-Things That Go Bump In the Night

We were in Target yesterday and saw these ghoul lights. I really wanted them, my daughter rolled her eyes...I restrained myself. I may have to go back and get them. My plan is to leave them up all year round because they're cool. I know, I know, Halloween comes but once a year. It's the time when people seek out scary. Demand it, as a matter of fact.

What would the Things That Go Bump In the Night think of that? Personally, I think it pisses them off. Think about it. You’re a card carrying Thing.  From January to October, you’re trying your best to scare those humans that occupy the Touchyworld. And they run. You chase, they run. You scare, they hide. You show up to say hello, they tell their friends how evil you are. It’s a symbiotic relationship. 

So, October rolls around and you’re getting ready for an awesome coup de grĂ¢ce, when…wham! Up go the scary decorations, out come the Ouija boards, on go the creepy costumes. Everyone is giggling like maniacs and having a grand old time. In fact, they’re chasing you. So. Not. Cool.

It’s enough to make any self-respecting Thing pack its bags and move to Disneyworld.

Enjoy October. Enjoy your short-lived decorations. Try and be respectful of the Things That Go Bump In the Night. They try so hard and really, Halloween isn’t the only day they favor. You should see them around Christmas.

Those are cool lights.
I do enjoy Halloween, and I do miss the decorations I put out.
