A bit of a let down, isn’t it?
Unless you believe — like me — that strange things happen during full moons. Which means August will feature two days of strange happenings, instead of just one.
If you’ve ever worked in a hospital, you’ll understand what I mean. People act a little crazy. Things don’t work as they should. Patients don’t sleep. They get chest pain. They wander the halls at night.
I do have an over-active imagination — I am a mystery writer — but there have been documented instances of increased hospital admissions, suicides, homicides, ER calls, and traffic accidents. Some police departments even increase their staffing to cope with presumed higher crime rates on full-moon nights.
And if werewolves and vampires really do exist, chances are they’ll pick a full-moon night to make an appearance.
Do you believe strange things happen during full moons, or is it a batty idea?
