There ‘s a nip in the air, the leaves are changing, (or more likely everything is just turning brown and dead, we can ‘t all live in the upper east coast, screw you guys and your pretty leaves) and pumpkins have taken over every grocery store and coffee shop. It ‘s finally here, October 1st. Otherwise known as
THE FIRST DAY OF HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEN
because let ‘s be real, that ‘s all October is: A countdown to Halloween. Growing up my family didn ‘t really decorate our house for spooky season, we did ‘ and still do ‘ carve pumpkins and we all take it VERY SERIOUSLY, AS IT IS AN ART, but we never really did the whole lawn decorations and lights thing, and I ‘m sure that rings true for a lot of people. And now here we all are, beyond the days of trick-or-treating and other juvenile Halloween shenanigans. But you know what the best part about being an adult is? We now have our own bank accounts.
And we are in charge of our own spending.
In other words, we can now buy all the ridiculous over-the-top Halloween decorations we want and no one can stop us.
On that note, did you know that you can buy an inflatable Beetlejuice sandworm that is
TEN GODDAMN FEET TALL
It ‘s… beautiful.
Some might say, “this feels a little excessive, ‘ and to those people I say hey, shut up. There is a very small window each year where you can deck your home out in the most ridiculous and scary shit without your neighbors thinking you ‘re insane and the local kids starting a rumor that you ‘re a witch who eats children, so milk it for all it ‘s worth.
Besides, what ‘s more inviting to trick-or-treaters than this??
“HELLO YOUTHS AND PARENTS WITH TODDLERS, PLEASE, RING THIS DOORBELL ‘
“RING IT ‘
This magnificent 10-foot tall beast is $179.00 which seems like a lot, because it is, but also ‘ money is temporary, GIGANTIC SANDWORMS ARE FOREVER.
