Halloween can be a scary time, hons. Sometimes it’s difficult to know when one should worry, laugh or just plain runaway. Here’s a helpful list you might want to print out and carry with you on October 31, just in case the sugar overload clouds your thinking.
Worry when you hear a home alarm voice say “Front door is open,” and you don’t have a home alarm.
Laugh when you feel the sheets being pulled off of you while sleeping and you are home alone. Ghosts really dislike being mocked and tend to go bother someone else.
Run away when you open the knife drawer and several are missing, or you see one there with unidentified blood on it. This just can’t be good, even if it is a prank.
Worry if this happens –
….and you don’t have a kid named “Toby.” Or any kids. Or any clean sheets in the linen cupboard.
Laugh if your pumpkins scream when being carved, especially when they are annoying like these fellows –
Run away when everyone runs through the house yelling this name –
….and no one you know has that name.
And whatever you do, if this child shows up at your door, please do not give him any more candy –
Happy Halloween, Hons!
