Trick or Treat!

June 19, 2005

My friend Karen’s latest blog deceptively and innocently called Telephone Call reminded me of a funny story my aunt once told. It was about a friend that we’ll just call Ruthie for the sake of this blog.

Ruthie was in her seventies when my aunt knew her and a woman who was very much still vibrant and filled with unique personality. She loved the color purple and wore purple clothes all the time, had purple glasses, and even painted her front door purple. She wore long pearl necklaces roped around her neck and sexy boots.

One Holloween Ruthie and her husband, Carl were at home. Carl was in charge of handing out the candy to all the little superheroes, ghosts, and Disney princesses that came to their door. He was watching TV in the front room and everytime the door rang he’d open it with a bucket full of candy to hand out.

Suddenly, Ruthie and a bold and creative idea. She quietly took a trenchcoat from the hall closet. Carl was watching TV. She quietly went to the bathroom and changed into the trenchcoat. Carl was still watching TV. She was wearing just a trenchcoat. And then she quietly snuck out the back door. Carl was still watching TV. She creeped around the side of the house and stuck her head around the corner. There was no one in sight. She then crept onto the front porch and rang the doorbell.

After a moment Carl opened the door, basket of candy in hand.

“Trick or treat,” Ruthie said coyly and threw opened her trenchcoat to reveal her seventy year old naked body.

Carl was so surprised he stepped backward and tripped on the rug. Down he went, candy flying all around the hallway. They had to take Carl to the hospital because he ended up with broken bones (I can’t remember what he broke, exactly). I wonder what they told the doctor caused the accident?

    Poor guy. But for a second there I thought the story was going to include some small children Carl had invited in while Ruthie was sneaking around back. Imagine the talk of the town if young eyes (not old) had witnessed The Great Reveal!

    What’s also funny is reading your blog TITLE on the sidebar from the bottom up. They get spicier each time!

    Hey, that would have been even funnier! However, the kids might have needed therapy after that.

    Very Funny!!! And I bet Carl would take a broken hip any day to witness that again.
