We were discussing Halloween recently and the kids were planning a haunted house. I quickly got cut since I "can't scare anyone". Then Noah piped up with "I don't know, she can get pretty ugly sometimes". So true.
One of those ugly moments happened just today. It was a no-shower day for me which means that by the afternoon hours I have a head of very greasy hair. And we had to go to the store - ALL of us. As luck would have it, I ran into a guy I haven't seen since high school. Lovely. Noah and Ryan decided to use the cart as a battering ram while old school chum tries to chat with me. Then they decide to climb on the side of the shopping cart - the same side which tips the cart, which I catch just in time (this was a very graceful lunge which may have included a grunt) but not before Grace falls sideways and bumps her head and screams. I could hear the guy thinking as he walked away, "yikes, that was SCARY". So, maybe I could be in the haunted house?
