I need your help.
If you recall, my kids are having a Halloween party
Saturday night. They've already decided on the movies - Texas Chainsaw Massacre
and Dawn of the Dead
, remakes both - so the rest is up to me.
I need to feed/water and entertain about 12 kids between the ages of 11-14. The movies will do most of the entertaining, but I thought I would add to the night by scaring the living shit out of them. Hey, the deserve it. These kids think there's nothing in the world - no movie, no book, no horrible mask - that could make them lose sleep or, at least, give them the screams for a few minutes.
One idea I had was this: during the height of the best part of TCM, I have my husband stand outside the living room window, wearing a leatherface mask and sporting a real, plugged in chainsaw. I'll pull back the curtains and say something like, check this out!
and Justin will rev up the chainsaw.
I've been warned that social services will be at my door just a few minutes after one of the kids drops dead of a heart attack. So, maybe not.
I need your help. I'd love to pull some good pranks on them or find a way to give them just the right amount of scare. Without killing any of them, of course. Well, maybe that one whiny kid.
DJ asked that I try to not make the party cheesy
. I take it that he won't want to bob for apples, then. Unless, of course, I put razor blades in the apples to make it exciting!
Kidding. So, is telling ghost stories considered cheesy? What if I played Danzig in the background?
You know, I just had the sinister notion that I should make DJ pay for his doubt that I can throw a non-cheesy party and go all out fromage
Anyhow, I know you people are devious and I know a lot of you just outright hate children, so I should be able to get at least one good scare tactic out of you.
, no basement.
[Speaking of ghost stories, I hope you've been keeping up with Jen's tale
