Have A Safe Halloween … Please!



Happy Friday, All!

I am going to say it … write it … and feel it … T.G.I.F., y’all!

Yes, I am wishing everyone a safe Halloween … please!  Thinking back to when I was a youngster, I remember the costumes our parents used to get us … simple stuff like “Cowboys” or “Firefighters”, skeletons and ghosts, Gumby and Pokie even!!!  Am I dating myself?!?  Yes, I know I am … and we had safe fun!

Times have changed, costumes have gotten “racier” and some folks use this “celebration” as a time to get away with cheap thrills!  Even back in the ’60’s and 70’s, folks used to put the laxative “ExLax” into chocolate candies, causing some children to suffer from an overactive stomach; there were scares with razor blades in apples!  Yep, there have always been threats to safety, too!  Now, I am not a big believer in celebrating Halloween, but it is happening all around us!  So be safe!

We are having a dress up office party at work today with three prizes for the top three best costumes!  One of the things I enjoy about office parties for Halloween is the food and decorations, though I am not a big fan of “scary” stuff!  Last weekend, I went to see the movie “Boo”: A Madea Halloween starring Tyler Perry in like three roles in the movie.  Madea busted up several scary costumers who tried to frighten her!  It was funny as all get out!!

So whatever you choose to do, celebrate and dress up … or not celebrate or dress up … BE SAFE!
