Friday Five

I hope everyone's having a very Happy Halloween. We're huddled in our darkened house, porch light off, trying to discourage those little candy whores from knocking on our door. It's working so far.

Here's the Friday Five:

1. What was your first Halloween costume?
My first costume was a little clown costume. It was a family tradition, passed down from my brother and my cousins.

2. What was your best costume and why?
Right before I got married, Kevin and I went to a costume contest as a pregnant bride (me) and a beat-up groom with a broken arm and black eye. It was really funny and we won first prize.

3. Did you ever play a trick on someone who didn't give you a treat?
No, I could never bring myself to be mean.

4. Do you have any Halloween traditions? (ie: Family pumpkin carving, special dinner before trick or treating, etc.)
Not really. When we were little we'd carve pumpkins and Mom would toast the seeds for later--yum!

5. Share your favorite scary story...real or legend!
Nobody does Scary like Stephen King, and I think his scariest story was It. Unfortunately, due to Amazon's horrible new search system, I can't link to it, but you know what I'm talking about. The Stand was really scary too.
