All Saints Day Message to Children of Atwater Village

Skull Face
NEXT YEAR on Halloween, how about not bringing any live snakes with you when you go out Trick-or-Treating.

Oh, and Mrs. Newbie's favorite costume? "Static Cling."

Newbie, I believe we are neighbors, however I didn't have the pleasure of meeting snake kid or static cling. I also was surprised how late everyone was showing up.
But my all-time befuddlement comes from the kids who simply scream at my door "Hello??!!" What ever happened to Trick or Treat? Or Please and Thank you? K, stepping off the soap box now...

Ha. Reminds me of a buddy in high school who I went to a halloween party with and his costume party was nothing but his pet king snake wrapped around his neck.

On the bus ride home he suddenly let out this yelp and yanked the snake off only to find it had bitten him on the back of the neck with no plans for letting go.

After some finessing we unclamped the snake's jaws without damaging its teeth. Physically my friend was fine too, but psychologically he was a mess.
