It's that time of year again. The season where we can't bring the girl into stores due to all the Halloween decorations that are just too terrifying for her.
Just bring her in, force her to get over it, you say?
You try shopping with a screaming six year old. You try focusing on a grocery list, with the wailing child and also dealing with people's "tsk,tsk...if she were my kid looks.
Really...why do we have to have a grim reaper skeleton with blood red eyes standing in the entrance of every store? Why do half of these skeletons need a sensor, allowing them to let out spooky laughs as we walk by? Why the ghoul-ish guy with the axe in his head?
I swear these kids are just pointing out how screwed up we are as a society. Horror and violence as entertainment.
The rest of us are just too asleep to notice.
