Creepy Crawlers

Sitting in a chair in the corner of a dark room

It’s quiet and I’m all alone

I hear the floor boards talking to each other

Something seems to be crawling slowly up my left leg

I slap my leg as if a fly was upon it

The slight sting brings a little pain

My mind goes back to the sound of the talking floor boards

The wind smacks branches against the stained window

Something howls out yonder

Suddenly the hair at the nape of my neck stands firmly

The room is suddenly cold

So cold I see my breath before me

Now sitting opposite me is a woman

A tall slender woman now smiles back at me

Her eyes are darkened but her hair is gleaming

Suddenly something comes creeping out of the right side of her mouth

She starts laughing and falls to the floor

And the red dress she was wearing lies empty on the floor

The dark room is darker no more

The coldness has been replaced with warmth

The creepy crawler slithers through the small hole in the window

The wind is now absent as is the beastly howling

and I feel safe again


Happy Halloween Everyone

I hope you enjoyed “Creepy Crawlers”

On a chilly Saturday night in October, Dr. Margee Kerr stood outside the exit of The Basement, the latest haunted attraction to enter the Pittsburgh fright scene. The Basement is part of ScareHouse, ranked among the country’s top haunted houses by the Travel Channel. If a normal haunted house is like a scary movie, The Basement is a psychological thriller. Inside, actors dressed as zombies do more than jump out of dark corners. They scream at you. Half naked, they press their bodies up against you and lick your neck. In one terrifying room, they pretend to slit your throat.

ScareHouse taps into neuroscience to take the experience from spooky to psychological thriller

10 worst Halloween treats for your kids:

Winning – Should it matter so much to win?

When you train so hard
So hard that every bone in your body feels weak and broken
When you work so long and hard that you almost forget
the names of those that you hold most dear to you
You have to know and feel that the sacrifices you’ve been making are for something
That you’ve been working towards all along
And that the goal is not just for you,
it’s for all those you work with, all those you love
Who have also sacrificed a lot right there alongside of you
So as the sweat is dripping off your forehead
and the cold night air is at your back
There’s no time left to wonder how, when or why
Because you have got the big ball and
With all the strength and force you can muster
You have to send that ball past the bleachers
Eying the darkened night sky as the pall passes by
You’ve finished getting all your opponents out
and the points are all on your side
When you hear the crowd roaring so loud you know you’ve done it
There is no greater moment when you know you’ve won
and crowd is going wild just for you
Then you finally walk across the threshold of your house
and your wife and children stand proudly before you
With nothing but smiles and hugs
No words are necessary
for you tell yourself
There just isn’t anything better than this
And all just because you’ve won!
