HALLOWEEN HORROR STORY
THIS REALLY HAPPENED!
Parents say stuff all the time about staying safe, but you never think it's actually going to come true.
"Quit swingin' that thing around. You're going to poke some body's eye out!"
"No I'm not," you always think. "First of all I'm careful. Secondly, no one pokes their eye out."
It's just like a Christmas Story... you know the movie with the BB gun where the whole theme is, "You'll shoot your eye out!"
Well... I've got a Halloween doozy for you. My friend Maureen here at work said she spent several post trick-or-treat hours at Children's Hospital yesterday.
Three kids at Maureen's house. Two boys. Boy number 1 is the Grim Reaper. Can you already follow where this story is going? You bet. Despite warnings that he would poke someone's eye out, the sickle wielding Reaper was going to town with that plastic weapon. Not sure where he got his, but when I was the Grim Reaper one year, I got my sickle at Bart's Display, right there on North Ave. in Tosa.
So of course, my man caught his brother with the sickle... in the eye. "Ah my eye! Ahhhh.... my eye!"
Boy number 2 has a pretty good scratch across the lens of the eye. Good news is.... now it's easier for him to be a pirate for subsequent Halloween parties.
I would love to post your horror stories for Halloween. Email them.
