Things People Give Away On Halloween

Hey guys! Last time I wrote, I talked about the weirdness of October. Well, since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought I'd be seasonal and write about Halloween. Now, I'm warning you...It's been a while since I've written a weird article...but it's about that time again where I pick up with the weirdness. Remember, you're going down this rabbit hole by choice!

Here are some of the things that people give away on Halloween!

1. Candy!

This is such a given! (Literally). It's so easy to get a free sugar rush on Halloween. All you have to do is knock on someone's door dressed up as something other than yourself and say, "Trick or treat!" But here's my question...What happens if the person who answers the door decides that, instead of greeting you with a treat, they want to greet you with a trick? Nobody ever asks the important questions. You are literally giving this stranger the opportunity to trick you. And what is the trick? Maybe it's a knock-knock joke, but honestly, what if it's murder? Then what? You got yourself into this, now try getting out! Anyway, moving on.

2. Prizes!

Ever been to a costume contest? How fun is it to dress up as something that isn't yourself? One year, I was an old woman for Halloween. It was quite the experience. But here's what we forget to remember at costume contests...ANYONE can be behind that mask! Which brings me to the next thing that people give away on Halloween, which is...

3. Territorial Privacy!

It's cute when kids come to your door dressed up as princesses and witches and pirates...ya know what's not cute? Letting strange young adults stand at your door while they sketchily take candy from your candy bowl while making eye contact with you through their mask and monotonously saying, "thank you". Yes, the people who answer the door on Halloween can be questionable, but so are the people who sometimes knock.

4. Razor Blades!

Guys, do yoU NOT REALIZE THAT SOME PEOPLE SUMMON THE DEVIL ON THIS DAY? They mess around with ouija boards and do seances. NOT ONLY are some of us opening the doors of our homes to joyful children and POTENTIAL MURDERERS, but some of us are also opening up the doors of our homes to demons and ungodly spirits. What a holiday.

6. Wouldn't it be bad luck to list a 6th thing?

Prose: One Call

What if you had one call, but you could not say anything other than what you were told to say? In this short excerpt, Bethany finds herself at odds with her jailers and with the one she was told to call, the one she loves. What would you do when the conversation takes a turn off script?
