I love fall. Don’t get me wrong. But, and there’s a big BUT, I hate Halloween. I hate it. I am so sensitive to creepy stuff. I hate being scared, I hate scary movies, anything to do with zombies, superstitions, all of it. And of course, come October 1st, everyone has all of their Halloween decorations out – BAM! And it’s everywhere. Then I have 30 more days to deal with it – see it, walk past it, try not to freak myself out by it. Especially when I have to walk by stuff like this to drop off my rent check:
And I prayed the entire time that they didn’t have a motion sensor in them to scare the shit out of me. Thank god they didn’t! The whole complex would have heard the highest pitch scream ever. Then it really would be like a Halloween horror down in the parking lot. Things that I’m not fond of:
- People trying to scare me
- All the candy that I can never stop eating
- Costumes – Looking for costumes and trying to come up with something clever enough, which I fail at every year. Every freaking year.
- The pressure to find something awesome to do for Halloween. I call it one of those stupid holidays, much like New Year’s, 4th of July, St. Patrick’s Day; those holidays where there is so much build up to find something cool to do and then you end up doing nothing. Big whoop. All that worry for nothing.
But, like I said, I do love it. When the decorations are not giving me heart attacks and people in costume aren’t giving me nightmares, there are actually a few things I enjoy. And yes, I know, this is probably the most cliched post I’ll ever do. I promise.
1. Fall colors as the leaves begin to change
2. When the air starts to get a little brisk
4. Sleeping with the windows open just to cuddle up under the covers
Happy freaking October y’all 🙂
