We seem to have a spooky theme going on here. For those of you who might be worried that my son disappeared on the bus from the Twilight Zone yesterday, he made it safely home. I don't know what the driver's issue was (she was the same one as usual) or why there were no kids on that bus when he boarded in the morning, but at the next stop, things got back to normal. There were kids there, and my son made it to school with no further incidents.
This morning was more spookiness. I don't know if it had something to do with the red moon from the lunar eclipse or what. But I think I totally scared my son. We were standing in the dark at the bus stop, when my son looked at me funny. "Mama, your eyes are black."
"Is that right?" I said.
He nodded slowly. "Your eyes look scary. There's no color. They're just black."
"That's because I'm a vampire."
Bubba's eyes got big like saucers. "You are?"
I nodded. "And I'm hungry!"
He stepped back. "Are you going to drink my blood?"
I smiled, revealing my pearl-white fangs.
Fortunately for him, the bus came at that moment. He scrambled on that thing as fast as he could. I guess he knew not to hang around a hungry vampire!
