|Local teens before dressing up|
We didn't have any treats ( thanks weightwatchers) so I bunged them a couple of quid. They are the first trick & treaters that we have seen for a few years now.
When I went to town to complete the shop at the supermarket, the scene was very different indeed!
Packs of bored looking teens seemed to lurk around every street corner, waving light up devil forks and blood stained hands. A group of four Osama Bin Laden lookalikes were having a " chat" to a policeman by the petrol station and even the checkout supervisor at Tescos was decked out as a zombie hospital patient in a bloodstained smock.....a fact that got on my tits somewhat.
I am not a fan of dressing up at work
( I once watched a very difficult conversation between a bereaved relative and a nurse with tinsel weaved around her hat)
As I was driving out of town there was another large group of teenage zombies sitting on the playing field swigging at cans of lager......which I thought wasn't quite in the real spirit of The Walking Dead but as I carried through the large village of Dyserth I did notice a few tots dressed as pumpkins running around excitedly with their mothers between houses.........that scene was a little more wholesome and reminiscent of ET than the beer swigging undead.
Speaking of the undead.......I am going to miss episode 3 of The Walking Dead tonight....... Working!
