Body parts scattered everywhere

The season of Halloween

My morning walk was anything but boring.  It is said that nothing good happens after midnight, and I found that to be true. Overnight, while I peacefully slept some real spooky stuff was going on.  Within minutes of the walk I tripped over a hand on the path, I cringed and kept going.  Then a skull, someone trapped in a car trunk, and eyeballs stuck to a tree. I have to get out of here!

Soon enough I turned the corner and walked out onto a dock. I started to catch my breath.  Then I noticed a big “orange” head sitting on top of a boat.


That did it!  I decided to take a shortcut home, making a quick stop at the corner store.

Bones and booze

I squeezed by this old “friend” and grabbed a bottle of red wine. After checking out I stayed on the shortcut and quickly realized that was a bad idea.

Dead end
Turn around now

I felt a chill down my back and something whispered in my ear “from this point on it’s the long way home”

  1. Oh my goodness your title had me so excited!! And what an eventful walk! Not sure that wine would have remained unopened had I been walking down that street-especially alone! Great job!

  2. Your title scared the crap out of me. I had to be brave to click on the link. Halloween has only recently gained a following among the younger generation in Australia. For old people like me, it is not on our radar. 🙂
