I Put A Spell On You....

....this is what the hubster always tells me about our marriage.  You see, we met at Halloween...at a haunted barn, to be exact.

I had carried my youngest son to work at a haunted barn that was taking place in the neighborhood where the hubster lived at the time.  I was going to drop the kiddo off and come back to pick him up, but the bestie convinced me to hang around.  So, I parked my cold rear end in front of the fire to wait until his shift was over.  After about an hour, some weird guy in a leather jacket walked over, grunted once and just stood there.  He had brought 4 victims, I mean children, to go through the haunted barn.  I told him that he just as well take a seat that it was going to be a while (there was a long line). 



He sat near me and we started chatting...about anything and everything.  We found out we both enjoyed a lot of the same things and he told a few corny jokes.  I gave him the obligatory laugh.  After their jaunt through the haunted barn, the victims he brought with him ran up telling him how scared they had been and after a few more pleasantries, he took them away and I waited for my son.

I enjoyed our conversation and realized that I never got his name, nor he mine.  Oh well, no biggie...just another guy.  But I did like him and we did have so many things in common. Hmmm....

When we left the haunted barn, which happened to be at a dead end street, I saw his truck parked at a house on the same road as the haunted barn.  Sooooo, I used my detective skills to find out his name, although he had the audacity to later say that I "stalked" him!  Humph!

The next time I saw him was on Halloween.  I had to take my son back to the haunted barn for another shift of annoying people...did I mention my son was dressed as one of those creepy clowns?!  Since I knew I would be passing by his house, I had made a decision to stop and introduce myself IF I saw him outside.

Well....wait....why am I telling you all of this in one sitting...there's no mystery if I do that....and, we have a date for the Rocky Horror Picture Show!  Guess you will have to come back tomorrow to see how it turns out... ;-)

In the meantime, I want you all to learn how to sing and dance to the Time Warp...

  2. This is a good one, Benita! And I'm happy to hear someone else saying their other half thinks they were being stalked, not engaging any interest. Yea, right, we know better, don't we??! You cast that spell, woman, and let's do the time warp. I'm ready! Love these clips.
    (ps If you didn't see Annie Lennox and Hozier do the mash-up of 'Take Me to Church' and 'I Put a Spell on You' from the 2015 Grammies, you ought to google it on YouTube - it was pretty awesome).

    1. Thank you so much…and yes, we definitely know better! ;-) I love both of these movies…we had a great time at Rocky Horror...it is always so much fun to hear people yelling things out in the theater! Thank you for sending the Annie Lennox clip…I’m a huge fan and love her voice! Her version was truly awesome! I will keep searching for Hozier!

  3. Benita, I loved hearing more of your How We Met story! Was that fate or what!

    I played both videos and realized that I've never seen Hocus Pocus but R.H. loves it so I'll watch it with him next time he does. And boy the Time Warp looks like a great exercise routine!

    Waiting for the rest of your story, Benita!
    Happy Halloween and Happy We Met Each Other Anniversary,

    1. Thank you so much! We both say it was a "God-thing"....we seem to be exactly what each other was looking for. Not seen Hocus Pocus??!! Oh, such a great movie and I love Bette Midler...awesome voice and actress! The Time Warp is definitely a lot of exercise, but I don't know if you would care for that movie...it is totally bizarre...LOL

      Thank you so much again and I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Love and hugs to you!!

  4. Such a great love story. Terry and I met at a Halloween Party too. I left with him only knowing my first name and somewhere in the conversation that night he knew I was a nurse and called all around anywhere they hired nurses to see if I worked there. He finally found me and the rest is history. So I guess the moral of this is that romance can happen even on the creepy crawling holidays lol!

  11. I love How we Met Stories but I’m spooked as this reads just like a real life Rocky Horror Time Warp… the lyrics go:

    …“(Columbia) Well, I was walking down the street, Just having a think, When a snake of a guy, Gave me an evil wink. Well it shook me up, It took me by surprise, He had a pick-up truck, And the devil's eyes, He stared at me, And I felt a change, Time meant nothing Never would again.

    (Guests) Let's do the Time Warp again. Let's do the Time Warp again”

    The Benita verse sounds eerily very similar

    (Benita) Well, I was DRIVING down the street, Just having a think, When a snake of a guy IN A LEATHER JACKET, Gave A GRUNT ONCE, Well it shook me up, It took me by surprise, He had a pick-up truck, And the devil's eyes, He JUST STOOD THERE AND stared at me, And I felt a change, Time meant nothing, Never would again.

    Can’t wait for the next installment mwah haha!
