Businesses to welcome trick-or-treaters on Friday

There you go!

Complete commercialization of Halloween. No, no. Probably plenty of frills and probably plenty of: “Mommee, Momee. Look at this. I want one.” from oddly dressed waist high snot noses’.

Aw, well. They’ve been working up to this since business started. ‘Member fellows, great risk goes along with a business full of light fingers thinking if you give it away, you won’t miss it if it is taken.

The rain didn’t last long. A couple of minutes of heavy down pour, a few minutes of light sprinkle and that’s all she wrote. Gone. Done.

I was suppose to remind myself of something. It wasn’t important to me, but somewhere back in the archives I wrote something disparaging about a professional baseball team.

It is difficult to admit wrongful thoughts, harder yet to have to eat crow. In the interest of my mental health however, I will confess that the K.C. Royals are World Series contenders this year.

You can visualize me in my battered middle management chair, stuffing dripping from the arms, me staring out the window.

I’m happy that I don’t bet on sports and wondering how a person of my acumen could have gone so wrong.

Darned Royals.


From the reaches,

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
