This morning in Iceland the staff were dressed in Halloween costumes.
It was a bit disconcerting to see a line of trolleys being pushed down an aisle by the Grim Reaper, complete with scythe on his back, but being served by a Cat Woman was okay.
For the first time in umpteen years I haven’t bought any sweets to dispense, having wound up eating them myself in the past, and so of course sod’s law says tonight the little buggers will turn up.
I can still remember the year when I traumatised some of the neighbourhood kids by opening the door wearing a Margaret Thatcher mask while this was playing at full volume on the stereo:-
Happy, happy times.
Tonight I shall mark the holiday by reading “As Dead As Me” by Ralph Robert Moore and watching the Kinski “Cat People”.
A safe, fun filled Halloween to all you ghouls and ghoulesses out there, whatever you’re doing.
