Several of the Redneck Hillfolk have really gone all out this year with their Halloween decorations around Ye Olde Apartment Complex, and I have found it just makes me that much LESS likely to do anything myself. There’s also a DAMN good chance the huge sack of candy I bought for Trick-or-Treat will be consumed entirely by Chuckweasel and myself.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Halloween, it’s just I’m not what you’d call a “joiner.” I don’t want to do what everybody else is doing, and the more they do it, the more I dig in my heels and refuse. Plus, I’m not really good with the decoration-removal part — my Christmas tree once stayed up until March!
Maybe THAT’S what I’ll do! I’ll start decorating for DIFFERENT holidays! Like, they can put up their ghosts and shit, and I’ll hang little hearts and cherubs in the window! Oh, it’s on now — this year’s Thanksgiving will be celebrated with shamrocks and leprechauns!
