Even with a porch Illusion show to entertain the Trick or
Treaters, sometimes I like to step over the bounds of good taste
and scare the living daylights out of them just to watch them run
down the street. Unfortunately, we rarely have a nice full moon
on Halloween, but it's the thought that counts.
I greet the trick or treaters and pass out candy as usual. If
I have a porch Illusion going that year, I work the Illusion. But
at the end, I begin to act as if I am about to faint. "Oh,
no! It's happening again!" I warn them. Then I change into a
werewolf before their bugged-out little eyes.
The majority of the kids know when to turn and run. For those
who are petrified with fear (or the wise guys who know I'm up to
my old tricks), I turn back into a human and go about my business
as if nothing unusual had happened.
