It is Halloween. Sam Hain’s day. So, I thought I would put down some thoughts about scary stories. These are the camp fire stories. The ones you tell after dark to scare yourselves. It’s important when you tell these stories to pretend they’re real. So you should always say, “this is a true story.” And also, “this happened to a friend of mine.” In urban mythology, this is called an “FOF” story. Or, friend of a friend. I think it adds more creedence than just saying it was you—-because that’s easily disproven. But when it’s your friend, as opposed to some person, that makes it scarier. Also, holding a flashlight up to your face doesn’t hurt.
In my opinion, here they are:
#1 Aren’t You Glad You Didn’t Turn On The Lights?
#2 High Beams
#3 Thump Thump Drag(it’s the very last one on this page)
#4 The Call Is Coming From Inside The House
Actually a movie! But still a great story.
#5 None Of Your Damn Business
(I include this one just because it’s so silly. I wrote a version of it today for Huck Slim here)
Dear five readers,
