I'm sat, cozy and warm under a Snuggie. Hocus Pocus is on the TV, and a cup of hot cocoa is in my hands. Soothing away the October chilly air, I'm perfectly happy. And then, just as things get exciting in the movie, and Max lights the candle, there is a knock at my door. I hear giggles and suspect it's just trick or treaters. I forgot to buy candy so I turn down my lights and ignore them.
They knock again, and call out, "Trick or treat. You'd better answer the door or we'll noble your feet".
"Noble my feet?" I call out, not exactly enthused to jump into action.
"Like in Misery....I'm your biggest fan."
Yikes. I don't want that. I put down my cocoa and stride to the door. I unbolt and ease it open. Before I can admire their costumes--bitter while thinking of my hot cocoa going cold--my nose meets wood as someone flings it open with great force.
"Oi!" I stumble backward.
"I know what you did last summer!" One of them hollers. No need to shout, I'm right here, I think. I re-gain my balance then wipe my hair from my face. Glancing up, I get a shock. Holy batman! It's that dude from Scream...with a huge knife in his hand.
"Trick or treat. " His voice is distorted through the mask, gruff and threatening.
"Hey. You're so not funny, Mister!"
"But I bet I'm scaring the--"
I throw my hand toward his chest and push hard, hurtling him back out into the cold.
"No treat for you. You're costume sucks!"
I take a minute to wonder if it was a real knife or not before telling myself it's a definite NOT. I then go back to my movie and snuggle into the warmth of my sofa, sipping on my luke-warm cocoa. Just when I've forgotten all about those annoying trick or treaters, there is another knock at the door....and it's you! How dare you.
