Halloween is my mother’s favorite holiday. Therefore, we always did it BIG!
I have a lot of great memories: my mom staining her face blue when she went as a smurf; my little brother totally freaking his girlfriend out with his werewolf costume; dressing my little dog up as a pumpkin; a scarecrow falling off our roof during a storm, making one heck of a dead body impression sprawled on the front lawn. But I have to say my favorite Halloween memory would have to be the year we put a dummy on the porch.
When I was about 20 and my brother about 18, we made a dummy out of an old pair of overalls, filled with newspaper, a shirt also stuffed to its breaking point. We put a mask over a garbage bag stuffed with paper and topped it all with an old hat. To add to the realism we plugged the leg bottoms into a (yes, old) pair of boots, then dumped “him” into a lawn chair on our front porch.
There he sat. For the entire month of October our dummy sat prone in his chair guarding our porch. The neighborhood got used to seeing him there. Kids bypassed him to knock on our door. Neighbors thought nothing of him as they drove by in their cars. Our dummy had become a recognizable part of our landscaping.
Or so they thought.
On the afternoon of October 31st, we took the dummy off the porch and took him apart, replacing his innards with flesh and bone. My brother donned the overalls, the shirt, the mask and hat—and yes, the boots. He plopped down in the chair, sitting all cockeyed, and waited.
And scared the holy bejeezus out of nearly everyone!
The best was one father who literally screamed like a little girl and ran down our driveway, leaving his toddler wondering where his escort disappeared to. Daddy did return to claim his son with a blush staining his cheeks. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had to go home and change his shorts.
I hope your night of haunting brings you fat free chocolate and giggles to last a lifetime!
And Happy Reading!
