Sometimes you just can’t make these things up. Like this story in last night’s paper where a man in a cow costume drove nto the river (after some partying). I had to laugh several times as it was just a comedy of errors complete with the video surveillance copy of his drive into the drink accidentally erased. After a lot of effort to find out if he was alone in the car and no one else was in the river, the rescue workers must have been relieved to find only the empty bottles and a cow head in the car. Only in my neck of the woods.
I made sure to tell my kids about this scary story as they prepare for their Halloween parties. I was going to visit my son this Sat. at college, but was told I would interfere with Halloween plans. I offered to dress as a witch but he asked it I would postpone by fly-by until the week after. And this after I made and shipped him cookies – Priority Mail no less.
I will let them have their fun as long as they don’t end up in the river.
