Happy Halloween and Samhain, all.
One of the best things I love about today is spending time doing fun stuff with my family.
Here in AZ, we have our state fair in October. Me and the kids spent a whole Saturday there (don’t ask how much $$, LOL).
Last night, we went out for dinner – mom didn’t have to cook, always great – and then to a local haunted house. Dark, scary, people dressed up jumping out and yelling they’re going to eat you. The kids pretty much huddled around me for most of the trip, until the very end…
Then, my 12 year old son saw the zombies.
There were only three of them, really.
The passage was tight, too narrow to get by in the pack huddle.
So what does the kidlet do?
He pushes past poor mom, throwing me to the zombies to save himself.
I’m not sure if I’m proud of his survival instinct, or amused at his embracing of the saying: “You don’t have to ourtun the Zombie, you only have to run faster than the other guy.”
Happy holiday everyone.
