Spooky and scary
Dictionary.com defines spooky as 1. like or befitting a spook or ghost; 2. eerie; scary.
Ryland’s howling ghost costume is spooky.
And so is this hand squashed underneath this big rock.
Or Dracula’s head and arms creeping up from under his grave.
Or this elaborately decorated yard with the all these scarecrows and jack-o-lanterns and ghosts hanging around? And I wonder what that big black thing in the middle will do on All Hallow’s Eve. Spooky.
What about walking along empty streets lined with awkward-looking naked trees (that’s what I call these leafless trees)?
It could be scary walking alone here at night but not during the day. This is one of the streets where I take my daily walks.
Yup, I’ve committed myself to going out everyday and walking at least 30 minutes. I stepped on my bathroom scale a few weeks ago and was surprised to learn that I gained about 10 lbs since summer. Now, that’s scary to me.
This is one negative thing about working at home. I eat and I munch all day that I don’t even feel the pangs of hunger. And I don’t find enough reason to go out of the house. But now I found one – this weight gain. This couldn’t be good. No wonder some of my clothes won’t fit anymore. I can’t afford to buy new clothes now. And I can’t afford to join a gym membership either, or buy a treadmill. So I think walking is the cheapest and the best form of exercise I could get for now.
And want to hear another thing that’s scary? Halloween is just two days away (make that a day away, didn’t notice that it’s past midnight already) and there will be lots of candies in the house. I have to control myself. But can I? Mwah hah hah hah hah.
