On Halloween Night we used to love to do things like test drive Mortality.
Here’s how we did it:
You know that legend about Bloody Mary? You’re supposed to stand in front of a mirror, in the dark ( well, use some candles I mean- duh- if you can’t see what’s going on you’re out of luck ) and chant the name ” Bloody Mary ” three times- then she comes out of the mirror and kills you.
I’m not sure how she does it- though I’m guessing sharp objects are involved.
I think the idea is to get somebody you don’t like to do this- but I could be wrong.
We tried it- doesn’t work
but it was fun.
The Girl At The Side Of the Road
Every Halloween some Dead Prom Queen is supposed to be on some road waiting for somebody to give her a ride home
From what I understand this story involves a girl who dies in a car accident on her way home from the Prom and somebody will pick her up and drive her home and when they get there they turn to the back seat and she’s gone and her parents come out to tell you her sad story.
We went looking for her too- but we decided if we found her we’d make her go ” Shoulder Tapping ” with us.
Shoulder tapping is what we called it back in the 70’s when you’d hang around in front of the 7-11 and try to get people to buy beer for you- which shows you how smart we were- we always did it in our neighborhood so we were always sober by the end of the night.
And we didn’t see a ghost either.
Thirteen Steps To Hell
We have at least two cemeteries here in Washington with stories about how in one crypt or in one grave there are Thirteen Steps Leading to Hell. The Doorway to the steps is guarded by a Witch who will give you the Second Sight if you sell your Soul to the Devil who is waiting for you at the bottom of the 13 Steps to finalize the deal.
To bad the Sight doesn’t kick in before you get to the Bottom of The 13 Steps.
Then You’d see clear as day that the Devil takes you to Hell and if your plan was to rule the world with your Powers- you are so going to be disappointed- toasty- but very disappointed.
Message From The Beyond
Everyone goofs off with a Ouji Board on Halloween.
Everyone knows those things are demonic.
Everyone doesn’t get together three or so friends, agree on a phone number
as the ‘message’
let their inncoent bystander ( and former ) friends call it
only to let them learn they’re dialing
the intake desk at a local Mental Hospital.
Hey, it’s funny-and like I said you shouldn’t mess with those things…
and on Halloween of all Nights.
To end this let me remind you:
Life is short-
Enjoy Halloween and all the
rest of the year too
