“Every 23rd spring, for 23 days, it gets to eat.”
We’ve reached the most deliciously creepy time of year, with ghouls, goblins, and beasties popping up around every corner.
If you’re not just a little scared of the Creeper in the “Jeepers Creepers” movies – an ancient creature that lies dormant for 23 years at a time, then resurfaces and tracks you down based on the scent of your fear – you’re not doing Halloween quite right.
In my opinion, the first “Creeper” movie is the best – and the slow-burning, evocative beginning, where a sinister truck follows two kids down empty twilight Florida roads, is the scariest part of all.
Even though nothing has happened yet…you just know it’s about to.
That’s why that “Every 23rd spring…” line gets you right in the gut. You’re safe right now, maybe…but not for long.
There’s a subtle difference between knowing something is scary and being afraid it will hurt or affect you right now — and we’re seeing that theme play out right now in the relationship between bonds and the stock market.
I’m about to show you a very frightening chart that we don’t have to worry about…yet.
