So have you figured out what you’re going to be for Halloween yet? I don’t know why it takes me so long to decide on what I’m going to be. Maybe the fact that I’m a procrastinator might have something to do with it. Well I decided to visit a Halloween shop to check out what costumes they had this year.

Sometimes great things can come from procrastination. Case in point, my Halloween costume. I didn’t have one. It was a crazy month and I never got time to even think about what to be this year.

Sometimes its very hard to get any sort of Halloween spirit during the hot, long dog days of summer. I was shopping for sports equipment at a local sporting goods store, when I came across the most horrifying thing I’ve seen this season. That’s right..this is not a joke.
