When witches go ridding
And black cats are seen,
the moon laughs & Whispers,
‘tis near Halloween
… I’ll stop, I’m already scared. I wish I could tell you that I love Halloween – I don’t. I don’t see why someone would want to purposely be scared or scare other people.
I’m a total chicken – I still call my mom, when walking to the train/bus station and it’s dark outside … I wish I was kidding.
This weekend I was watching the movie Hook (yes, the children’s movie) and Mr. LTSL told me to change the channel because it sounded scary … we’re pretty much besties!! I stinking love that kid.
So, I won’t be dressing up for Halloween – there are no trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood … instead I’ll be waiting for Saturday when all the candy goes on sale and then I can take it all and bake it in browines … or cookies … or c ake … or who am I to be biased?!?! – all 3!!
But just because I shitake mushrooms at the slightest loud noise, and you won’t find me wearing a mask — it doesn’t mean I can’t sprinkle a little Halloween goodness all up in this joint!!
Plus, the Halloween oreos looks so cool!!
