Halloween Express

… and now a pause for these commercial messages.

As I was driving into work this morning, I noticed that the Halloween Express building had been put up in the State Fair parking lot already. For those outside the Milwaukee metro area, this is a giant orange tent/building that looks like the top half of a jack-o-lantern. Inside they sell all things required for Halloween.

Looking at the calendar, I can see that there are 50 days until Halloween. Are there really people out there thinking “I better get my Halloween costume today, I only have a month and a half left”?

    I was *just* talking to my dad about that the other day. I feel like I’m being compelled to look forward to distant future events so much that I can’t enjoy the days until then as much because all they are are obstacles keeping me from that distant thing I’m supposed to be looking forward to!

    Halloween? Heck! Hallmark has had their Christmas ornament display up since mid-July….”I better get my Christmas ornaments today; I only have three and a half months left!”
