Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, so I feel a little bad about pretty much ignoring it this year: no jack-o-lanterns, no cornstalks, no bowls full of candy (it has been years since we have lived in a neighborhood plied by trick-or-treaters). I thoroughly enjoyed driving to several events in October and seeing the gusto with which others had embraced the holiday. Ghouls, ghosts and goblins peeked from many a tree…and the lighting!…and the sound effects! I call it the Spielberg Effect.
Not one to be left completely out of the loop, I found these slippers at our local one-stop-shopping center, and couldn’t resist. I chuckle every time I look down. Practical, too, on these cold cement floors. So “Boo! to you”, or should I say “Grrr!”…and a belated “Happy Halloween!” thrown in for good measure.
