I was doing shopping at Walmart when I wandered into the ever-shrinking Halloween section and found - to my complete surprise and absolute delight - a fully articulated posable five-foot skeleton for only 29 bucks! I've always wanted one of these, and I figured it would be perfect as the crowning touch for the haunted cornfield I'm putting together. They only had two left, so I figured I'd better jump on it quickly. Only problem was that I had ridden a motorcycle to the store, and I doubted that old Billy Bones would fit in the compartment under the seat. But I wasn't about to pass on him because for all I knew, there could be Christmas wreaths in his spot by the time I got back with a car. So I figured, "he's posable. Why not just have him sit behind me?" So I had him straddle the seat and then secured him with a bungie cord and drove him home. Did we turn a few heads during the ride? You bet. People, especially those in cars completely absorbed in cell phones while stopped at a light, did double takes. Some people standing on the sidewalk waved as we rode by. A few of them even clapped. I was a total kick. And Billy Bones came through it like a champ. I think I may have to take him out again.
