I went to Target in Lower Pottsgrove today to pick up some gloves for my kids who were going to be in a parade in Elverson tonight. I wanted inexpensive knit gloves so that my instrumentalists/flag twirlers could cut the fingers off.
I also picked up some food. I wanted a cucumber and I got some sour cream. The store was really pretty quiet. There were a lot of clearance sales that I noticed.
But I’m not writing this to talk about my cucumber! I wanted to mention the very nice woman I met who was making some purchases so she could outfit a flatbed truck for Boyertown’s Halloween parade on Saturday night. She had a spider about 4 feet wide in one hand and in her small red handbasket I think she had another 4 or 5 huge spiders. They were overflowing from her basket.
I started giggling and I told her that it made me so happy to have her get in line behind me. I said ” It’s going to be hard to forget the lady who was buying that many spiders!”
Happy Halloween a little early!
