The Mash

It seems that this is the month of looking backward, with a sense of nostalgia. I must say that childhood just isn’t quite what it used to be, and I see that every year at halloween where it makes me just a little bit sad.


It was an old song, but a favorite of mine. It was out of date, and a vit corny, but the idea of a bunch of monsters dancing in Dr. Frankensteins lab always amused me. The beat was catchy, and no matter how many times I listened to it, I never remembered all of the words.

I was far too old to enjoy it so much, but it brought me back to being a kid. To a time when Halloween was everything, and I was always a sucker for nostalgia. Its why I dressed up to hand out candy, because It was soo cool when people were in costume when you went to their door.

I think if I could, I would still trick or treat, though I could more than afford the candy. There was something about the excitement of it all, that seemed to be waning as time went by and less and less kids joined up for what was just a little wholesome fun.

Oh how the world has changed…
