This weeks show and tell is actually quite shameful! Last night while I was looking around for my fall decorations, I found this pop-up haunted house.
When I was in the 2nd grade ( 1969), my teacher Mrs. Udell told us she had a special prize and showed us this haunted house. I knew from the minute I laid eyes on this haunted house, I had to have it. No matter what it took! To win the haunted house, Mrs. Udell told us to put our heads down on our desks and close our eyes while she hid several construction paper pumpkins.Well you probably have guessed by now that I cheated. I just squinted my eyes and watched her hide all the pumpkins! When she told everyone GO! I ran right to all the hiding places and found the most pumpkins, so I got the haunted house!
The sad part of this is that I felt no remorse! I HAD TO HAVE THAT HAUNTED HOUSE!
38 years later, everytime I get this haunted house out for Halloween, I remember how I won it and feel just a little guilty. But not much!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week-end.
