1. One Halloween, I dressed as A clown.
My mother sewed a costume and she made me up with makeup. It was terrible. I hated the smell of the makeup.
2. My favorite comedian is _quite a few different ones.
I like the Reverend Grady Nutt, Jerry Clower, Jimmy Davis, and Andy Griffith. There are/were many good, clean comedians. There used to be a lot anyway. I try to model the stories I tell after those. Maybe I can get to be as funny as some of them.
3. My scariest Halloween was I got nothin’.
Honestly, I can’t think of anything remotely spooky that happened on or near Halloween. We always stayed away from the spooky kind of things. However, one year, when we lived in Norcross, Georgia, we had a jack-o-lantern on our porch with a candle burning inside of it. A young man thought he would be cute and steal the jack-o-lantern, lit candle and all. He managed to burn himself pretty badly with the candle. His parents tried to get my father to pay for the treatment. My father told the boy’s father, “You probably do need me to pay for it so you can afford to pay for a lawyer to keep your kid out of jail.” It was all dropped right then and there.
4. Ghosts in the graveyard is my favorite Halloween treat.
You take some chocolate pudding and crumbled up Oreos. This is the dirt for the grave yard. Then you make ghost shapes out of Cool Whip. You make tombstones using those Pepperidge Farms Milano cookies.
Our kids love them. We used to make a punch called gremlin guts. It was ginger ale or Sprite mixed with pineapple sherbet and some pineapple juice with lots of pulp. The kids loved it.
I also like the fun-sized Butterfingers. Our youngest loves the Smarties which are hard to find most of the year, but you can find them this time of the year.
