With Halloween coming up this week, I thought I'd post a few safety tips I've learned from watching my favorite TV show, Supernatural.
On All Hallows Eve there could be all kinds of ghoulish creatures roaming about. One can never be too careful.
You should be fine if you follow these tips:
~ Watch your back. If something creepy is after you, it will ALWAYS sneak up from behind. And usually from the direction you were just looking a moment ago.
~ Do not split up! The surest way to come face to face with something scary is to split up. People of the movies, when will you ever learn?
~ If you hear a strange noise coming from your closet (or the room down the hall, or--heaven forbid--from the cellar) DO NOT CHECK IT OUT. I repeat, do NOT slowly and hesitantly approach the sound, especially if the lights won't turn on and there is intense, unsettling music playing in the background.
~ Never leave any part of your body exposed outside of the covers. The covers are your friends, stay under them. And DO NOT dangle your feet over the edge of the bed.
~ Never back up to a window. Inevitably the creature/demon/zombie/evil clown/vampire/ghost will break the glass and grab you. In fact, keep your window locked. And if you hear something tapping against it, it is most certainly NOT the wind.
~ Salt is your friend, keep it close. Silver bullets or iron blades are also recommended, but harder to take on airplanes.
If there's one thing I've learned, you can never be too careful.
Have a happy and SAFE Halloween!
