I'll let you folks decide...
"Mother, do you know you have a blue skull in the rug in the living room?"
Tromping feet down the hall to address this apparent blasphemy.
"See, it's a little blue skull."
(inspects in disbelief) "No it's not, it's a....motif. It's just a design or something."
"Uh huh, the design and motif of a skull. You have a blue skull in your expensive ru-uuug (sing song style from her eldest impertinent son).
"No, it's not a skull or I wouldn't have bought it. It's some kind or flower bud or something."
"It's a sku-ulllllllllll."
"It is not and don't backtalk your mother"
So, my lovelies, is it, or isn't it? Do you side with your dear friend and Hallowe'en loving Mr. Macabre who has tried to find and spread the joy of Hallowe'en all around the world (and who has a 4 year interior design degree, class of 93, and collects skulls so he should know a %#@$ skull when he sees one!) or his mother, who albeit is a designer herself, hates Hallowe'en, thinks that it is the devil's birthday (which it isn't because it's actually in August because it's so hot and miserable here it would HAVE to be) and would love nothing more than to see her son in a 3 piece suit instead of a pair of shorts and and a Hauntcast tee shirt and his high top Converse sneaks. But don't let me sway you, you just decide on your own without any influence from me...
