Other than the typical scary movie nights with your closest friends, this year, (pumpkin) spice up your October plans with spookier options such as:

-Adopt a black cat (even with the intention of returning it on Nov. 1)

-Buy a new broom stick.

-Attend Fall Fest Tuesday, Oct. 23. in the main hallway at 5 p.m.

-Decorate the house, in a strictly spooky manner. (An easy hack for all my Pinterest lovers: cover things like furniture and small children in white sheets and call them abstract ghost).

-Buy a pumpkin. Cut it.

-Dabble in some black magic… but just a little.

-Sit the month out and wait till Nov. 1 for cheap candy.

-Watch a scary movie… I recommend Hush.

-ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING PUMPKIN.

-Buy a farm, and make yourself a scarecrow or two… (note: if it’s a corn farm, don’t bring children with you.)

-Avoid all lumberjacks with a chainsaw, especially ones with Texas accents and a leather-looking mask.

-Visit a blood drive. Don’t have lunch there.

-Splurge on… some candy corn.

-Visit your local graveyard, just to say hello.

-Prepare your costume.

-Register to vote… politics is a scary thing in today’s world.

-Shave your head. Spooky, am I right?

-Rake up leaves. You’ll need somewhere to hide the bodies. Make a separate pile for the kids to play in. Don’t mix the two piles. Bad idea. (Another bad idea would be taking this one too seriously.)

-Scream. It’s good for you.

-Exclusively use dark allies as your main mode of transport.

-Apply for the FAFSA… college is also scary.

-Do a trust fall, but with someone you don’t trust. That’s really spooky.

-Wear pink in honor of breast cancer awareness month. Also wear black because it is definitely a spooky color.

-Ignore caution tape. (This idea is for the real daring ones though.)

-DON’T LOOK IN THE CLOSET.

-Hit up my boy Freddy Krueger… he might need a hand.

-Last but not least: stay hydrated. Nobody likes dead-looking skin. (Get it? Zombies.)
