I'm not a fan of scary stuff. I don't watch scary movies; I don't read scary novels. Well, not the gory horror ones. Suspense, yes. Thrillers, yes. But all of those Halloween/scary ass dolls/chainsaw movies? Nope. You'll never catch me watching one of them. I took baths for weeks after watching Psycho.
About the only thing I like about Halloween is I get to buy an assortment of candy. I also like seeing the neighborhood kids dressed in their costumes come to the door. Y'know, the ones who will get the so-so candy we bought while we keep the good stuff. And by we of course I mean I.
Otherwise, forget it. I do not like scary, spooky stuff.

But everyone has those. Right?

Now, that was funny.
