Wow. If your kid spontaneously recites monologues from Shakespeare, you are definitely doing something right as a mother.

Much as I love Halloween, I agree with you that it is TOO EARLY for store displays. Two weeks ago, in the grocery store, I was looking for a few of their advertised super-cheap school supplies, so I headed to the aisle devoted to seasonal merchandise. In mid-August, "seasonal" should mean back-to-school and a clearance section of pool noodles and flip flops, right? Nope. It was packed entirely with orange and black boxes of fun size Snickers and jumbo bags of Dum-Dums. The school supplies, when I finally found them, had been wedged onto an end-of-aisle display near the laundry detergent and toilet paper. Clearly Halloween is more important (financially) than back-to-school!

You know, Summer, if I had tried to get him to recite monologues from Shakespeare, I am certain he would have resisted. Totally agree on the back-to-school and end-of-summer expectations. I'm looking for apple-themed merchandise and finding leprous zombies instead. Harrumph.
