Creeeaak… My Entry

orange_23-1Susanna Leonard Hill’s 5th Annual Halloweensie Contest*: write a 100-word Halloween story appropriate for children using the words costume, dark and haunt. (I threw in some older sketches for fun – enjoy!)


Knock, knock.

Who’s there?

Trick or treat.

Rick and Pete?

No. Trick or treat!

Oh. Stinky beets?

We’re trick or treaters!

You’re picky eaters?

We’re wearing costumes!

You need the bathroom?



It’s dark out here!

A shark is near?

We’ll bare our teeth!

You like my wreath?

Open the door!

No, I don’t snore,…but I’m hard off hearing.

We’re gonna haunt your house!

You caught a mouse?

Aw, forget it.

Slug and lettuce?

Goodbye…and good riddance!


Why are you leaving? I love kittens!

  1. 🙂 🙂 🙂 so funny but that is probalby what would happen if I had any trick or treaters come to my door. No one knows I have two ear aids or hearing aids.

    But I get lots of warning about Halloween coming from this kidlit community. Ha ha!

  2. That is hilarious. I never told anyone online (no need to), but I have trouble hearing. A lot of the time I hear just like you portrayed. Perfect!

    Someone once told me he fell off a house and I asked how long he’d be riding a horse. He wasn’t amused, but I was only responding to what I’d heard.

    • I am sorry to hear that, but the mistake was funny, if not to your friend, though I’m sure he would have preferred riding to falling. Too bad you don’t have the super-power to change reality according to what you interpret!


      • “I’m sorry to HEAR that,” I love this! No need to be sorry. I hear great with hearing aids, just hate to wear them. That would be too cool to be able to change reality to what I hear and not what is said. That might even make a good kids story. 🙂
