Halloween Friday Fives

1. What was your first Halloween costume? well, for years I did the hobo thing. You know, dirty clothes, messy face, and a handerchief of stuff on a stick. 2. What was your best costume and why? My favorite though was my C3PO costume. I was so proud of that vinyl piece of crap. I must have wore it for years. Should have mom did it up, I'd be retro chik now! 3. Did you ever play a trick on someone who didn't give you a treat? Well, there were certain houses in the neighborhood who didn't do candy. They would signify this by turning off all their lights, and of course not answering the door. Keep in mind, young kids are pranksters, who turn into teenage vandals. Let's just say when it came time to egg a house or tee pee someone's lawn... we always remember the houses that didn't put out! 4. Do you have any Halloween traditions? Now? not really. We dress the house up a bit and give out candy to the kids. You don't think I want my house egged for the next 10 years, do you? 5. Share your favorite scary story...real or legend! It was this ghost story Mr Clarke would tell us when we were camping. It was about a trucker who was driving in a terrible rainstorm. Up ahead he saw a guy in a yellow raincoat flagging him down for a ride. It was too wet and too late to stop in time, and the stranger was right in the middle of the road. Of course the man in the rain slicker got ran over. The trucker never stopped, I mean... it was too late. What could he do? He felt bad but kept on going. All of the sudden there was a ghost sitting next to him. The ghost just said over and over, 'Thanks for the ride, mate!". So trucker drove and drove and drove until he found a town. He stopped at a bar and went in and had some drinks and told everyone his harrowing tale. They all dismissed it as a rain vision. The trucker stayed there for the night. The next morning the storm was gone and it was daylight. He went out to his truck and saw yellow vinyl all over the radiator. It always freaked us out. Apparently it is a pretty common ghost story though, because I have seen it in about every horror and urban myth movie since. As always, thanks to go to Roy for this week's questions.
