1) According to Reader's Digest, The Exorcist is the scariest movie of all time. Have you seen it, and if so, did it scare you?
 
Listen, guys and dolls, I'm 40 years old and I'm still scared of Freddy Kreuger. I have not seen The Exorcist, I have no desire to do so now!

2) The Exorcist has been made into a TV series on Fox, premiering last month. Have you become a fan of any of the season's new shows?
 
No, but lately we've been watching Two Broke Girls on reruns at 10 PM, and then Mike and Molly at 11 PM. We're late bloomers, apparently. What should we watch?

3) "Tubular Bells" is a popular ringtone for both Android and iPhone. What's your ringtone?
 
I might have to listen to that, just to see if I know it. I don't have anything exciting for right now. I just got a new phone, a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and I kind of hate it. However, given the price tag, I need to keep it, so... I guess I need to figure out a ringtone!

4) As Halloween approaches, do you watch more scary shows and movies?
 
I guess we do, but mostly kid-friendly things. I am not a fan of the horror genre at all. Can you tell?

5) Do you have any recurring nightmares?
 
Yes, but we don't need to get into that. Mine aren't your average nightmare. They probably only scare me, but these nightmares were real, and so. And so.

6) Have you carved a jack o' lantern this year?
 
Not yet. We''ll probably get the pumpkins on Halloween or the day before, because any sooner than that and they rot! Miami humidity, y'know?

7) Do you like the taste of pumpkin seeds?
 
Yes, they're great! We received a bag of Bob's Red Mill pumpkin seeds as part of a compensation package for some work I did, and they were amazing. I put them in my oatmeal. Even the puppies liked them!

8) What will the trick-or-treaters who knock on your door get?
 
Nada. We don't get too many, so we're switching it up this year and going trunk-or-treating at church. I don't know whether I"m supposed to bring candy to that or not, so we're going to bring four or five bags of Snickers and stuff. You know, standard Halloween fare.

9) A Halloween "let's pretend": Back in the 1950s, a home in your neighborhood was the site of a gruesome murder/suicide. Relatives retained ownership of the house but declined to live there. During the ensuing decades, a legend grew: The tragic couple haunts the halls. Generations of schoolchildren insist they heard strange sounds and saw curtains often move mysteriously. Now the house is about to be demolished. A local charity is raising money by sponsoring a Halloween sleepover. Would you be willing to stay in this haunted house over night?
 
No. Way. In. Hell. That is creepy!

Happy Halloween, y'all!
