A Scary Reality

I went to town the other day and found myself schlepping around in Michael’s which is dangerous because my basket always gets filled with stuff I didn’t know I needed.  Know what I mean?

spider web

I saw some cute Halloween decorations like spun-fiber spider webs and plastic spiders.  I started reaching for them but stopped when that voice in my head said, “Hey, Val, why buy webs and spiders when you’ve got the real thing at home for free?”  Usually that voice is logically challenged but this made sense.  I put down the spiders.

Then I perused the candy aisle and figured I needed some but then that dang voice piped up with, “Who are you kidding, Val?  You know you haven’t had a trick-or-treater at the house in 15 years since you moved to the boonies.  You’ll just have to eat all that candy yourself and you know where that will go!”  I muttered, “Shut up.” and stepped away from the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

I left with a fake pumpkin, 3 gourds, and some candles.  That will have to get me through.
