A Halloween Delivery

November 1, 2006 | By | 1 Reply More

Last night, All Hallows Eve, I heard the doorbell ring (yet again). A tightly packed crowd of small costumed individuals were clustered on my porch wearing eager expressions, and all holding bags or other containers. As I opened the door, the tallest “kid” dressed all in brown reached over the heads of the others and handed me a box.

As I juggled it and my candy bowl in puzzlement, he cheerfully called out, “Happy Halloween from U.P.S!” and waded through the throng back off of my porch.

I just thought I’d share this almost totally non-political verbal image because it amused me.

    You've got skeletons and skulls in your house? That's really creepy, man. What kind of freak are you? I'm thinking of calling the police. Nice plant, though.
