Here's (One) Of My Scary Storie's!!:

When I was younger, I was in a rock band... That is scary enough, considering all the money I spent. But that's not the point of my story. My buddies decided to start up one of those "Scary Ghost Tales" to get everyone on edge. The weather was getting foggy, as it does during October. And with the fog, came the rain... So I started carrying an umbrella when leaving for work. Each day, as I was seeing "odd" things... namely someone walking on the side of the road... in a trench coat. Each day, they were there... different area, but still walking down the road... Only one thing changed. This "person" started holding an umbrella too... This went on for about a week; as I drove to work for the rest of the week, I noticed the stranger was no longer walking on the road... Figuring it was a fluke, I dismissed it and thought no more about it.

As it got closer to Halloween, I was still thinking about that "stranger"...

I was in a band... remember? I played drums, of course. I also lived in a garage that was remodeled into a room. So when I came home at night. I was coming into the back part of the house. As I walked in one night, I had forgotten to turn the light on... and tripped over something as I was coming in. An umbrella... I could have sworn I left mine in the car, so didn't think anything of it. For the next few nights, I kept finding this umbrella in various locations in the room I was staying in. Yes... I even made sure to carry my umbrella in. So I knew for sure it was not mine. Then... it hit time. The "stranger" had been carrying an umbrella with him, every time I saw him. This kind of made go hmmm. I asked my other bandmates if they had left said umbrella in my room, But they had no idea what I was talking about...

It was the last night of my crazy scheduled week, and I was excited to get home as it was Halloween night, and we were going to play some music and party (Oh... to be young again). As I put my key in the door, turned the doorknob, and went to step inside. A huge figure reached for my arm... This "figure" was wearing a trenchcoat and was holding an umbrella... I vaguely remember thinking... Do I swing? Or karate chop? Or bale right out that door!! All of a sudden the bedroom light comes on, and my "bandmate" is standing there... laughing his butt off! As I finally caught my breath and checked my drawers (Hey... he was a BIG guy lol) my friends explained to me how they had planned the whole thing. and I fell for it... hook, line, and sinker! So... the morale of this scary story? Never trust your bandmates, on Haloween!!

By the way...

I forgot to mention... as my buddy went to reach for my arm, my other friends yelled, at the top of their lungs...

Trick or Treat!!
