Halloween Blog Hop or Confessions of a Popcorn Ball Addict
Welcome to the Halloween Blog Hop!
I will never forget the year my cousins and I all dressed up like hobos for Halloween, complete with flannel shirts and 5 o'clock shadows. My mom drove us all over creation visiting our relatives. We grew up rural, so there weren't any neighborhood blocks to flock to. We spent a good three hours driving from house to house and when we finally reached my Grandpop's place, my little heart seized in my chest. His old, stone colonial farm house--the house he was born in, mind you--was eerily dark on the outside, but through the windows dancing, twisting orange firelight beckoned unsuspecting children.
The whole scene was completed with ghostly moans coming from who knew where. Walking up to the door, I gripped the handle of my plastic goodie bag with sweaty palms. The youngest of my cousins, I was the first to reach the door, the rest of my posse creeping up behind me with wide open mouths. The door creeeeeeaked open, and I screamed, jumped, and ran at the face of my Grandpop lit up from below by a flashlight.
Everyone laughed, except me. I sulked a good long time while I nibbled down a popcorn ball and a half before I saw the humor in it.
