The other day I was at my local druggist, I was in desperate need of a certain ointment! Joking!
The First thing I saw was a great big display for Halloween! HALLOWEEN! I kid you not, the date was August 16th, and they have Halloween displays already! A shiver went from the top of my head to the tips of my toes.
Halloween for me means the beginning of a time of year I like to call, well I can’t really say it can I? Damn you Bluesfan44, and damn the rules of engagement!! But I digress, I think most everyone has a name they like to call this time of year, the crazy ones will call it a wonderful time of year. The sky bums will all light up in toast of the first snowfall, the polar bear club will await the freezing over of lakes so they can cut a hole in it so they can go for a dip! Now these people are either insane, or mutants from another planet, I mean what drives these people to jump into a body of water that is -1000 degrees celsius???
There is one bonus for us sane people, by exposing certain private body parts to such extreme cold, can decrease the chances that these mutants can reproduce!! Yea Score one for the sane people!!
Some will say “But amo, Halloween signifies that hockey is back on the ice!” I agree wholeheartedly, drop the puck already! But in today’s age hockey is played indoors, and there is shelter from the storm. (great Dylon song btw) Those that are planning on attending the outdoor game in Buffalo, do some research on the effect that had on the people of Edmonton. One word SHRINKAGE!
Bottom line, I DO NOT need to be reminded in the middle of August that some day soon, I will be shovelling snow, breaking my back doing so while having a strange sensation in my lower region that feels like a trip to the dentist!!
