The Darkness or The Wetness and The Coldness

After waking from my reenergizing nap, I headed down to the lobby for one last night of stupid good fun with everyone.

We began by moving most of the couches into one big circle. Then we cheered everyone who walked by until they joined us. That brought tons of haunters who all had one thing in common . . . they were pissed about standing in line for an hour and a half in the pouring rain!

Yep, it was cold and rainy and the doors, which were supposed to open at 7, did not open until after 8:30. Something about all new actors who had to be taken through the house and shown what to do. This was really not the crowd to have waiting in that weather for so long. To make matters worse, at the end of the tour was a HUGE room. Yes, they could have brought the line inside.

Luckily, as the beers flowed, moods improved. And, as moods improved, we got sillier and sillier and that brought in even more folks. By the end of the night we had representatives from Texas, Illinois, Nebraska, Ohio, Seattle and California. And, after much chanting and begging, we got two haunters to do the Worm. A third attempted the Worm, but it was pegged “the Trout”. Who cares cuz it was all awesome and she did it twice!

We all had to get up early the next day so we packed it in as soon as Security kicked us out at 3:30 AM.

Sunday it’s back to the show for a bit and then home.
