Only three or four days before Hallowe'en, and I, for one, am ready to get it over with. Every day, I receive two or three e-mails urging me to look closely at an attached photo, or video. In one, I am to locate the deer in a forest. In another, I am to count the number of bunnies (or some other cute little animal). Then, I am to look deep into the eyes of a portrait, and watch for the eyes to move, or watch a car careen down a mountain road. . Then, after I am thoroughly engaged in doing whatever I am asked to do, up pops a ghoulish, bloody face, with a blood-curdling scream.
I always know what is going to happen, really. So, why do I fall for it every stinkin' time?
