Halloween is upon us

With Halloween just around the corner I thought I would share a funny story from last Halloween.

We had a party at our house, which we usually do. We had the yard all decorated as a graveyard with Nuclear Toast's awesome decorations that he gave us when he moved. We had all of the tombstones set up (about 15 or 20) and lots of cool jack-o-lanterns and mannequins dressed as Dracula, Frankenstein, etc. We even saved up all of the leaves that we raked and put mannequin legs sticking out of the ground with the leaves around them so it looked like a corpse was going to pop out of the ground at any minute just like in Thriller!

Everyone was pretty inebriated and there were really two moods going on at the party. There was the mellow group listening to one of our friends play guitar and sing and then there was what I now call drunken debauchery team one. I was a part of the latter.

Bri was sitting with the mellow group and as she looked out our front window she saw DK run by waving a set of mannequin legs in the air and Chris right behind him in hot pursuit. She thought to herself - Damn, Ashley is going to be pissed at them. At that moment I ran by carrying a pumpkin and SMASHED it in the driveway - pumpkin flying everywhere. Chris and DK were breaking whisky bottles on the rockery and I was trashing every pumpkin I could find, on the driveway, in the yard, in the street - pumpkin everywhere!

The next day we woke up and went out front to survey the damage. There was of course smashed pumpkin everywhere, including on the roof along with a mannequin head, and broken bottles everywhere. DK started to clean up and a neighbor walked by. DK shook his head and shrugged his shoulders kind of like "Damn, those teenagers got us again!"

Fun times, fun times!

This year we are going to go all out with the decorations and put signs up at the main road to lure trick-or-treaters down to our graveyard of Halloween horrors!

But Mr. Officer, We you can’t prove anything. You said the culprits were wearing some type of toga outfit. Were old (and almost) married women. What would we do with eggs besides cook with them?
