What's your best Halloween trick for the wonderful little goblins and ghouls that knock on your door? This has to be something fun that you, the kids, and their parents enjoy.
My best so far are:
1: Hide in the bushes with ghoulish clothing and make up, casting "bait" (zipper bag with light stick and candy bar) into the path of oncoming kids, and when the pick up the bag, tug on my fishing pole and holler - Honey! Get the pot ready! I've got one.
2: Lower a plastic devil doll from nearly invisible (at night) monofilament fishing line from an upstairs window, almost on top of the kids at the door. The devil sings Elvis Presly's "Hunka-Hunka Burnin Love". The song alone scares me.
Kids and their parents love it.
3: When they yell "Trick or Treat", I give both a treat and a trick. The treat is full sized candy bars. The trick is to spray them in the chest with silly string. I've been known to spray parents too. They all got a kick out of it.
4: Slide ghostly apparition down a fishing line from upstairs window to a plant hanger that has a skeleton and an emaciated caged prisoner hanging from it, with foam tombstones all around. Motion is always great.
5: Put BT in a 6X10X10 foot plexiglass box with a live chicken. As he tries to catch it, the chicken goes nuts, BT goes nuts, everyone is scared. I'm just not sure if they're scared of BT, or the commotion of him pursuing the chicken.
Not really, BT lives on the East coast, you know, where the real scarry people hail from. I live in the serene and peaceful Eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where everyone comes to find bliss and tranquility, and beautiful people, like me.
Sorry BT. An older brother's gotta do what an older brother's gotta do.
Give me your best tricks.
