Page 8 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2015 By Kevin Skavhaug Tis the Season... I just love that commer- cial in which the four young adults are in a horror movie and they choose not to jump into the running car to escape their impending doom but in- stead try to hide behind a bunch of chainsaws. The killer, who is standing right there watching it all, just shakes his head in disbelief. Now that's a great commer- cial. It's all about decision making. But you can't blame the kids, they're reacting un- der duress and sometimes that clouds their decision making. Take a PRA student named M.S. for instance (we will use initials for confiden- tialities sake). But she's a sophomore with long, dark brown hair. Ok, so it's Hal- loween night -- well the night before. You've just fin- ished a terrifying "scavenger hunt/scare the begeebbers out of 'era" event and at the end of the night, you leave the doors to your very cool Chevy Avalanche unlocked! Of course someone is going to be hiding in the backseat. It's a given. I can understand how her fiiend (a blondie named J.M. -- again confi- dentiality) might not suspect an "after the fact scare event" since she's just an innocent bystander. But girls, really? Sheesh. You always lock your car doors at night, even if it's not Halloween! I'm sure an adult chaper- one would never leave her car doors unlocked after an event such as this. Well, maybe she would. I'm not saying either way. So yes, adults can have moments of bad decision making as well. Like, why would you ever not suspect a life-sized, scary, dead woman mannequin to be sit- ting on the toilet in the small,. enclosed and dark faculty bathroom in the elementary school? Really. Silly ladies. Sheesh But I've made a few of those kinds of bad decisions in my life too. I remember once, well, twice, well actu- ally, like about twelve times that I watched those stupid vampire/ghost/werewolf movies. I finally learned my lesson. I don't do that any- more. The worst was when I was just a kid. There was some vampire movie uptown at the Lyric on a nice July night. It did not sit well with me. I sprinted all the way home up to Park Ave. Just a few steps froln my back door a neigh- bor kid was on his way somewhere and was cutting through my back yard. OMG. We met almost face to face. That didn't sit well with me either. So in the "things I should do" category, I don't watch movies like that anymore. But to be honest, I don't lock nay pickup doors either. Since my pickup is a single cab, I don't feel the need to lock it's doors since there's no way anyone is getting be- hind that seat. So they stay unlocked. Unless of course (duh) it's Halloween season; anything can happen at this ti~e of" vem-~ By Kevin Skavhaug ter one, would score on the fast play of The Press of the second.
