Update: The idea turned out well – I got about 100 kids and Dan showed up dressed as an angel.
Our spook house, or, “Cabinet of Curiosity”, was a long maze with lots of optical illusions. There was a bridge through a spinning tunnel, people dressed as the backdrops, different elevations, etc… Haunted houses feel surreal (because they aren’t “real”) and reflecting on them feels like a dream, which is why I like them so much.
I also did a corn maze earlier this month, which ended up being 3 frustrating miles of walking.
Me: (to Dan upon entering) What’s a gay man’s fantasy?
Me: Walking backwards in a corn field!
Dan: (unamused expression and corrective tone) No, it’s not.
We ran into a collaboration of Christian groups who were figuring out which way to go, and it went like this:
“We’re Blah Blah Blah, on a youth activity.”
“So are we! We’re Blah Blah Blegh!”
(To me) “What church are you from!?”
“No. Corunna the town.”
“…ohhh! Hey, Whomever, we need to sing a song about this!” <– proceeded to sing hymns, replacing certain words with “stalk” and “walk”.
I fantasized about the thing from Jeepers Creepers swooping down and saving me.
too bad my brother isn’t here
once imbecile reached his ear
he’d cut you up so you’d need stitches,
And this concludes Octoberfest.
