Just a quick reminder: Halloween is just a few days away. So are elections....
So many things to be afraid of. I'm ready to give up coffee. I just need to read the morning news to get my heart going.
Yesterday, while running an errand, I was circling a parking lot in search of a vacant piece of blacktop. A few rows out, there were several free spaces that weren't too far from the store I was going to. As I prepared to pull in next to a hatchback, I stopped in my tracks.
A bloody foot was hanging out of the back! My heart stopped and my blood ran cold. For a few brief seconds that seemed like an eternity, I panicked. What should I do? As I reached for my cell phone, I realized that this was just a prank. A fake foot like the one pictured below:
Normally I am much more skeptical and would not have been taken in. The news lately has been so grim, it is hard to tell reality from a simple joke.
After feeling foolish, I pulled into a space, a few spots down. As my heart slowly returned to its normal 4 cups of coffee pace, I walked by the car with the "bloody foot" and chuckled.
I guess this is the payback for the silly stunt I have on my window!
