night outfits 5 years ago Spooked
We sat in front of the television with a bag of bugles chips watching SNL & not a clue as to what was about to happen. You would think that my brother and I would catch on to his antics, but we were young and wrapped up in giggling at Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey.
That’s when the lights went out.
Our old country home sat in the middle of what felt like nowhere; Seven miles from the closest town, three miles from the closest neighbor. When Dad switched the electrical box down and put a trash can top over his head, a chill ran down my spine and nervous butterflies through my heart. Of course I knew it was just my Dad up to his old tricks, but for the next hour we were chased, we hid & we played in a wonderland filled of ghosts and goblins.
This is why Halloween is my favorite holiday.
