What have you learned from 2005

I saw this topic elsewhere and thought it brought out some funny stuff. I'll start it off..............

1. I've learned that it's useless to set the mood with a Midnight syndicates CD, when your neighbor is playing Monster Mash over and over at full volume.

2. I've learned that if you move your fountain at the last moment, and don't have time to re-tint the water red, every guy between the ages of 40-50, who doesn't even have the skill to put out an uncarved pumpkin, will point out said flaw.

3. I learned that kids who were almost too scared to go through the haunt in the first place, can be scared back in, if you're dressed as a reaper and are sharpening a real scythe on the pavement at the exit.

4. I've learned that my wife isn't the only woman I scare.

5. I've learned that two middle aged women locked arm in arm, and taking baby steps through a haunt, are Gods gifts to haunt actors.

6. I've learned that screams can travel at least one block down, and one block away, according to friends of ours who live that far away.

7. I've learned that asking your teenage son to set up and get ready the dropping spider, doesn't automatically infer to him that he should also turn the @#%@ thing on. No wonder I heard no screaming from that corner, lol.

8. I've learned that my years as Scout and Scoutmaster have born fruit in my ability to materialize unseen throughout the haunt at peoples elbows, hehehe, rattle cans are for rookies! LOL

When a Trick or Treater says "You're not scary" its not an insult to you, but rather them trying to re-assure themelves outloud that they shouldn't wet themselves in your presence.

Standing and staring not making a sound works just as well as jumping out and screaming

Screams travel well in the night air and bring more victims.

Let the kids get the candy, THEN come charging out the front door with the chainsaw, or the wife gets mad.

The farthest you should chase a child with a chainsaw is 1 block, but they'll run at LEAST 2.
