I am participating in the SITS girls’ Halloween link-up like super duper late. These posts are due tonight at midnight so……
Post One is to talk about a Halloween past!
A few years ago Christopher and I lived out in the “country” at the end of a dirt road. It was family land, and his parents were to the right, aunts and uncles scattered around, and grandmother toward the back.
One night I was sleeping (I used to crash early and Christopher would stay up late. Quite the opposite now…) and something started scratching the side of our window AC and side of the house. I vaguely remember hearing it. Next thing I know Christopher is out on the front porch yelling at someone. Our sweet docile never-ever-barks-or-growls lab was flipping out, and not happy one bit.
Christopher figured it was his brother messing with us. Some dude was out there a few hundred feet away shining a flash light in Christopher’s face so he couldn’t see who it was. He said “Matt cut it out! I’m going to tell Mom!” (hahahaha moment to laugh please…..) “I’m calling the police! Matt stop!” But then he saw another person starting to climb the fence, and this person was not his brother’s wife, so then he was no longer convinced this person was his brother.
Then he runs back in the bedroom yelling at me “get up get up someone is trying to break in!!!!” and yanks the covers off of me. I start freaking out because he’s screaming at me. I am just wearing panties and a tshirt and I said “I don’t have any pants on!” and he yells “it doesn’t matter! Come on!” So I follow him to the back door.
I start crying “what about the dogs?!?!” and he says to leave them, they’ll be fine. He opens the door and tells me to get in his car since his keys are in the ignition. So I run, in my panties, around my VW and Christopher opens the back door and I dive in. I’m still crying btw.
He jumps in the front seat, turns the keys in the ignition. And Nothing. NOTHING. I start screaming and freaking out, because seriously I thought we were going to die. Christopher remembers that there is a spare VW key in the VW so he tells me to get in it. So I jump into the passenger seat and find a comforter (yaaay!) and then…
Up walks Matt, Christopher’s brother, and his wife’s little brother in a Scream mask. It HAD been Matt all along, and there I was bawling crying in my panties in a car that wouldn’t start because of that jerk! He and I were planning to scare the daylights out of Christopher on Halloween, and then I told Christopher about it so we could scare Matt while Matt was trying to scare Christopher, and Matt figured that I would tell Christopher, so he just decided to scare us both.
And every.single.word. of this story is true. I am the half naked girl in scary movies that runs around crying, jumps into a car that won’t start, and then gets murdered by the Scream dude. Except I didn’t get murdered. But I could have.
