The night of the werewolf

This sounds like the title of a horror movie, I know. It is absolutely random, but it actually IS the title of a horror movie. I swear I didn't mean it and didn't know about this movie until I googled it a few minutes ago just out of curiosity. The same title came to my mind as I was watching the moon and I wanted to use it. Sometimes I like to write posts based on a good title, not knowing where it will lead to. Maybe I am thinking more and more about Halloween already.

So as I mentioned yesterday, it is the full moon tonight. Which means it is the time where lycanthropes turn into their beastial state, turn into werewolves. I am not as big a fan of werewolves as I am of vampires, but still like them. Anecdote here: in Quebec folklore, a man turns into a werewolf if he has not been to confession for seven years and has behaved like a heathen/Godless man all this time. That sounds like me, as I once mentioned here. But it is difficult to tell, as I am naturally hairy. Am I turning into a werewolf tonight? I have been craving steak and chips, which is a rare occurence indeed. So it might be a telltale sign.

My roommates knocked down the abandoned shed behind our house with driftwood cudgels that they brought home from our camping trip.

Never underestimate the powers of the waxing gibbous.

I think that you are safe...I have never read about werewolves ordering a side of chips with their steak/sheep/human

@Mantas Calaveras-Waxing gibbous?
@Anonymous-Maybe werewolves are more sophisticated now.
