Can you believe it's the second week of October already? This year seems to be flying by faster and faster!
With Halloween at the end of the month, our theme is Fears/Things That Go Bump in the Night. Don't miss Katie and Kai's posts!!
Now, for my true life, bump in the night tale.
I love Halloween, mostly because I've never outgrown playing dress up! As a child I eagerly looked forward to carving pumpkins (or decorating with shoe polish) as well as dressing as a princess or an old-fashioned ice skater and going trick-or-treating. Yes, I was a girly-girl.
To this day, I still vividly remember when I was six, and my brother took me trick-or-treating. It was a dark and chilly night, with a hint of rain in the air. We were walking across a lawn from one house to another and I stepped in a hole. I looked down and could see light around my foot and was completely convinced some demon monster was trying to drag me to hell.
It took my brother some time to convince me that it was just a light in the hole and that I was safe. And then he spent more time convincing me to finish trick-or-treating. I don't remember the rest of the night, but that moment is seared into my memory.
