Proscalpin with out a prescription For Halloween this year, my Mom let me help her cut out the face for our jack-o-lantern.
We got some newspaper and placed it on the kitchen floor (“No, Bailey,” she told me, “it’s not to pee on!”) Then we went outside to the front steps to get our pumpkin which was really cold from being outside for a couple of weeks. I sniffed it to make sure it was still ripe before we brought the pumpkin back in the house and placed it on the newspaper.
My Dad offered to cut around the stem area so that the pumpkin would have a lid. When he was done, my Mom opened the lid and reached in with her hands to scoop out all the stringy orange pumpkin guts that were mixed in with pumpkin seeds. I was so glad she did not ask me to do this. I would have needed a bath! She put the pumpkin guts in a bowl and when she was done she threw it in the garbage. Noticing that her hands were covered in pumpkin guts, I stepped away in case she thought she was going to pet me – no way! Instead, she went to the kitchen sink to wash them before continuing.
My Mom asked me hold the pumpkin steady while she drew on the eyes, nose and mouth with a big dark magic marker. This is the scary part: My Mom reached into the kitchen drawer and pulled out a http://isitsi.com/physician-biographies/embed/ large, sharp knife to use to cut out the face. I said, “Mom, watch out with that thing!” As I was holding the pumpkin while she cut, you can see my concern…….
But, my Mom cut the eyes, nose and mouth out pretty easily. Next, she asked me to get the candle from the living room, which I did. She placed it inside the pumpkin and lit it. The pumpkin’s smile lit up. It was beautiful! The pumpkin was ready to be placed on the front porch again for all the trick-or-treaters to see.
I took may place by the front door, snuggling up on the door mat while looking out the glass. Now, where are those trick-or-treaters?
