It's almost Halloween.
I really don't care for Halloween. Okay, to be fair, certain things about Halloween, I do love.
Candy. Cuddle-able kiddos in cute costumes. Jack-O-Lantern masterpieces. Toasted punkin' seeds.
Um, yeah, that's all I got.
And this year, there's the whole "Should we or shouldn't we?" when it comes to having our children traverse door-to-door grabbing snacks (and maybe germs?) from strangers.
Ditto those poor strangers. Some of us are old and frail and what-not --I'm not entirely convinced we should really be doling out candy (and possibly a virus?) for two hours to a parade of unknowns.
Sigh. When did something so sweet and innocent get so scary and complicated? Ah, yes, of course.
Thanks, 2020. You stink worse than gutted, rotting pumpkin guts sitting at the bottom of the trash can from 10.31 until garbage day.
Did I mention we have to #FallBack this weekend so we get an extra hour of 2020 to enjoy? Blech.
But worse than the pandemic trick-or-treat trickiness is the general atmosphere of the humans these days.
I don't know if it's COVID, the election tension, the notion of limited holiday gatherings, or just too much alone time but lately the fellow earth-dwellers are making me wish I lived on the FOURTH rock from the sun, Capisce?
Case in point: thank you, rude grocery store co-shopper. Not only did you ignore me when I tried to say Hello from a socially-distant spot in the aisle but you also rebuffed me when I asked if you'd mind if I made a wide swerve to your right after I'd patiently waited seven minutes for you to decide on a brand of black olives.
Too bad she couldn't have picked up a bag of polite or a box of kindness. She does realize common courtesy is free, right?
Rude. Come on, people, just because it's Halloween doesn't mean you have to act like a monster, yo.
Can't say I'll be sad when Halloween, COVID and naturally, 2020 are all just one jumbled, frightening memory.
Be kind and hang in there, y'all! #InItTogether #BeKind #Love #Pray #Peace #FallBack
