At work, the claw machine has new, Halloween-themed stuffed toys.
It’s perfect for the season.
And at the back of the machine is Casper, the friendly ghost. For Halloween he’s dressed as an Egyptian mummy.
When I first saw it, I shuddered. Why on earth would Casper have a Halloween costume at all, let alone dress as a mummy?
He’s already a freaking ghost, for crying out loud!
It’s an abomination, a betrayal of a beloved character!
On an unrelated note, my doctor says I need to stop getting worked up over trivialities or I’ll give myself a heart attack…
