The Melonheads of Connecticut
The seasonal inspiration for this episode comes from a character most of us are familiar with – the Elf on the Shelf.
Every year as the Christmas season approaches, mentions and posts about this little fellow start appearing in my social media feeds. Some find this little scout elf fun, some find him creepy. Though I can’t imagine why. He’s only been sent to monitor your child’s behavior and report back to an eccentric, judgmental grandfather figure who lives in near isolation, save for his so-called workforce of elves, who, from all reports, appear to be indentured servants of some sort.
But again, many people find him charming. And this got me to thinking: what makes some creatures who creep about, hiding ands staring at us, charming and whimsical, and others, disturbing and alien?
Hell if I know. I find them all weird, and today I’m going to talk about some charming little creatures who are rumored to live in the wood os southwest Connecticut: The Melons heads.
