Halloween Reminder: Macabre Figures Frighten Adults More Than Children
Since I was a little kid, I always loved Halloween. To me, the scarier the better. Even at age four, I laughed at witches, ghosts, goblins, ghouls, monsters, and skeletons. However, not all children are alike. It is a shame to scare the little ones too much.
Therefore, as a lesson to all you adults out there, I have decided to trick or treat this year. I have picked out my costume and I stand ready to take my neighborhood by storm. I am certain people will not take kindly to the nightmare they will view as I approach their doorsteps.
Some of you might think I am way out of line, but my intentions are good. Adults should be made aware of the horrors that plague us, especially in the adult world. Although my costume might turn a few stomachs, the real horror will be the actual recording from the persona I will play as unsuspecting homeowners open their doors with hands full of candy treats. I will specifically make it a point to avoid households where the elderly or the infirmed reside. I simply want adults to feel the kind of panic that befalls their children when confronted with the bad dream I will personify on October 31st.
With a special warning to the State of Florida, which is more susceptible than others, the night tremors are lurking. Beware! This year, I am trick or treating as the forthright leader of the blind-in-mind, Debbie Wasserman Shultz.
