...I'm being all kinds of shallow here and I'm bored with my stuff.
Not all my stuff, but some of my stuff.
This weekend I went to Target. I haven't been there in awhile. They have the coolest Halloween stuff.
And I want it.
Oh, I'm not being greedy...I don't want it all...I just want most of it...
Because, frankly, my Halloween stuff is kinda/sorta boring.
Oh sure, I thought the witch statues were cool when I got them umpteen years ago but
And admittedly, while all the various pumpkins in my 'pumpkin collection' are cool, they're not nearly as cool as the ones I saw at Target today.
And my green witches hand is... okay...well, that's still pretty cool and I need to hang onto that...purple glittery nails! green hand! Seriously, what's not to love?
But other than the green witches hand I think I truly really, really need more stuff.
And I would probably have actually bought something, if it wasn't for my husband.
The poor, deluded man actually thinks Halloween stuff is all the same. He doesn't see the beauty and nuance in small changes over the years...
He doesn't understand the deep compelling passion I feel to own one of each vintage metal sign that Target has to offer.
He doesn't comprehend how I can painfully covet a set of glittered pumpkins that are a richer, deeper orange than the glittered pumpkins I already have.
He also doesn't understand that I want to run amuk, cash in our retirement fund and fill multiple shopping carts full of all the Halloween stuff at Target. And don't even get me started on some of the cool stuff at Joanne Fabrics.
And he doesn't understand that although I tell myself things are horrible in the world right now and some people don't even have a single glittered pumpkin and that I should turn away from consumerism and embrace a simple, gracious lifestyle with hand-painted decorations and hand-carved pumpkins...
I just can't help myself.
So I am chaining myself to my desk until after Halloween so I won't succumb to my strong compulsion to run amuk, cash in our retirement fund and fill multiple shopping carts full of all the Halloween stuff I like at Target and Joanne Fabrics.
So tomorrow I guess I'll get out my Halloween decorations anyway.
And put them all out.
Unless maybe you just ran amuk at Target and Joannes and brought all the cool stuff home and now realize you really don't like it and wish you had kept your old Halloween decorations.
If that's the case...
I'd totally be willing to help you out and trade.
Except for the green witches hand.
I'll just hold onto that...
...because I'm pretty sure you wouldn't have liked it anyway.
Yeah. I'm shallow.
I have serious Halloween decoration envy.
