I wrote this first part last week but didn't get a chance to post it:
I was driving along in a school zone a few days ago and saw something that freaked me out. Off to my right, out of the corner of my eye, I spied a nice normal looking house. The house sported a nicely manicured lawn and three pretty trees spaced equidistant near the sidewalk. But…and here's the creepy part…. someone had lashed a toddler sized snowsuit to each of the trees. A pink one, a blue one and a white one. I slowed my car to a crawl and looked really hard to see what was up with the snowsuits. After I ascertained that the snowsuits seemed to be filled with leaves [not babies] I felt a little bit better.
I'm going to drive back by the house a bit closer to Halloween to see if anything changes with the display. At this point I don't know if the creepy snowsuits were Halloween decorations in progress [they had no faces] or a warning to the other children to stay away.
All I do know is it was freak....y, and it's probably one of those houses that mothers should hold tightly to their children and pick up the pace to walk quickly past when they go out trick or treating this year.
I'm just wondering if I should call the cops….
Then yesterday I drove by the house again, stopped, crept up quietly and took a photo to share. Each snowsuit has a "face" now, and the display is definitely geared toward Halloween, but take a look at the photo and see if the face they added to the snowsuit is likely to make me feel any better about the owner of the house……
