A Guest At The Door

My friends and I dressed in our Halloween costumes and I photographed the lot of us before we headed out for the evening.

I'd also volunteered for door duty with much enthusiasm; every time the bell rang I'd go open the lovely glass door and oooh and ahhh at the childrens costumes and produce a copious amount of sugary sweets for them. Then I'd go back in and call out to the others to tell them who had been at the door and bubble over about how cute or cool they all were. I was having a grand time!

I could see the little ones as they trooped up the stairs from my vantage point in the foyer, where I was shooting pictures of our group. Just about the time we were almost ready to leave, there was a loud knock at the door and I turned to see this standing there, waiting:

(Thank youFreakyJohnfor the picture)

"Somebody else come get the door!" I hollared, "It's the Grim Reaper and I'm not going to answer it!"

Thankfully, all he wanted this time was candy!

Ah, poor grim reaper, he gets such bad press - and you'll probably find, in time, that he's fonder of candy than anything else! ;-) Sounds like you had a great time - so when do we get to see piccies of you all dressed up and scary! ;-)

Don't blame you. Reminds me of the Monty Python sketch:

"Anyone here invite a Mr Death?"

Molly said...

After all the trouble he went to with that authentic looking costume,you wouldn't even talk to him??You don't sound like an equal opportunity candy hander-outer.....Shame!

Suburbia said...

So are we going to see the photo of you all dressed up?!

Hey Vanilla!

I'll have to keep that in mind, and carry candy with me everywhere then. ;o)
Did have a great time.

...I can't put photos up, I run this blog incognito! ;o)

Dear Jon,

He was on the guest list... it turned out.

Hello Miss Molly!

You know what they say, an ounce of prevention and all that...
A girl has to be careful!
(he got lots of candy from my friends)


I am incognito here... I can't put pictures of myself up, I'd blow my cover!
I am told it was a very good costume, though.
