Like many, I've become sucked into the dark and creepy Upside Down World and the Netflix series Stranger Things. So once the doorbell stopped ringing and the goblins, clowns, princesses and ghouls retreated to their homes to tally up their loot, I headed to my fellas to watch the final episodes. With a quick stop for ice at the Mobile Station across the street from his apartment, I was ready to settle in for the night to watch the final episodes with some wine in my comfys.
Entering the gas station, my mind completely preoccupied with Number 11, the whole gang and if Hopper would survive the Upside Down World, I was totally oblivious to my surroundings. I've learned to keep my head low and mind my business in this area of town as there are always panhandlers or interesting characters looking for money or cigarettes or rides to wherever. So, it took me a few minutes for my brain to process what was happening. The manager extremely angry and visibly agitated was yelling and threatening several kids dressed in costumes who apparently had robbed the store moments before I walked in. After an extended verbal exchange and threats of the police being called, the little criminals dispersed. Standing at the plexiglass window getting ready to pay for my items, I hear a very loud POW and THUD. I immediately drop to the floor along with other store patrons. "Holy shit" I thought to myself. These little fuckers are shooting into the store. Freaking out and my heart racing, I slowly crawl across the floor, away from the window and hide behind a display of Frito Lay chips. The manager who is now himself in panic mode immediately ducks and hides behind the bulletproof plexiglass and proceeds to call the police.
Turns out these little Halloween masked fuckholes decided throwing rocks from across the parking lot at the glass window would be a cool and fun idea, terrifying all within the store. The large stones smashing against the window in succession POW, POW, POW, sounded like shots being fired. If only I had the power of 11.
