Have you ever watched that show “What Would You Do?”
The one with the host who hides hidden cameras and then puts people in awkward situation and films their reactions to random things and sometimes they totally do the right thing and pay for the toy for the little child who’s mother can’t afford it and sometimes they just raise their eyebrows and walk away.
There are days when I feel like I’m about to be the star of that show.
I have to begin by explaining that I like my Halloween non-scary.
I know ghosts and ghouls and goblins and boooos and eeeeeks are a thing.
I get it.
I like gourds and corn stalks and leaves and wreaths and burlap measuring tape ribbon.
I’m okay with the occasional bat or spider or spooky silhouette…..
….and I always like my pumpkins to smile.
Yesterday, me and my non-spooky Halloween self were sitting in a parking lot minding our business and our pumpkins when a vehicle pulled up next to my car.
I glanced up from my dashboard.
And wiped my eyes.
And stared again.
Parked next to me was a Zombie rescue vehicle.
It was super official looking and covered with zombie writing and scary looking graphics and dark tinted windows and ghouly looking paint.
And as I stared at it intently…..
….four thoughts occurred simultaneously in my brain.
1. Are zombies a thing now?
2. Do they really need rescuing?
3. Should I check my lipstick and make sure I was having a good hair day?
4. And where were the cameras for the hidden camera show?
No one ever came out of the vehicle.
No hidden cameras showed up.
No zombies were rescued that day.
But I was ready.
Just in case.
And for the record? My lipstick looked amazing.
