At the grocery store yesterday, Lily bumped into a Halloween display. The witches were her height, wearing sparkly purple robes, and had red glowing eyes. They had sensors and began to move and cackle when someone came by. It terrified Lily. Really put a crimp in my shopping style to avoid the display at the center of the store, close to the checkout. We saw another little kid get scared and cry. Lily said: "Mommy, let's talk to the principal of the store and tell him it's not Halloween yet." We approached the customer service counter and asked to speak with the manager. Lily marched right up to him and declared: "Those prickly witches are scary to the children. You should take them down." Within two minutes, the visible part of the store was prickly-witch-free.
