It's that time. One of those Halloween traditions I really enjoy...
In fact I have enjoyed it a lot more this year than I ever did when the kids were little because for the first time I actually have enough financial security to be a little generous. To have a little fun.
What is it? BOOing! We were BOOed Friday night... I actually know who BOOed us, but nevermind... a few of us (re: the Couch to Keg team) had discussed it and how we'd get it going. And we discussed who we'd BOO.
Wait... Maybe I am starting too far in... What IS BOOing?
The leaving of a little goodie basket on a porch of a couple people, and tagging them to ALSO do it for a few people... until everybody has gotten a little Halloween goodie bad... I found the following online to go with it:
The air is cool, the season fall,
Soon Halloween will come to all.
Ghosts and goblins, spooks galore...
Tricky witches at your door.
The spooks are after things to do,
In fact a spook brought this "Boo" to you!
The excitement comes when friends like you,
Copy this note and make it two.
We'll all have smiles upon our faces,
No one will know who "BOO"ed whose places!
Just two short days to work your spell,
Keep it secret, hide it well.
Please join the fun, the seasons here .
Just spread these "BOO's" and Halloween cheer
I found it here
I had so much fun putting together the loot, too... I chose two houses with kids (one with three, one with one) all young, all boys. This was the loot I got:
peanut butter eyeballs...
and for the baby... a vampire binky...
And then it needs to be delivered with stealth... so one needs... A MINION! Here is my minion, grumbling that I made him go during the day, but HEY, we were delivering to small children.
Is that the most amazing costume ever, or what? I figured he looked the roll for delivering Halloween goodies in it, so I begged and pleaded (and might have bought him new ear buds for his iPod).
Do any of you do this in your neighborhood?
