Almost Halloween humbug

by Radio Somewhere

I was just sitting here contemplating the silliness of Halloween; wondering if I should waste bandwidth writing about why I never bother dressing up (with the exception of 2005 and 1995, when I caved to peer pressure.)

Then I happened to look over towards the soup counter at the grocery store where I am having coffee — and saw Big Bird ladling soup. I was surprised and charmed as I watched Big Bird then disappear into the crowd of shoppers.

I picked up my phone to start writing this — and soon saw Big Bird advancing with a tray of soup, accompanied by a small Elmo — and a few other friends.

OK. That’s cute.

Bring on the costumes tomorrow!!
