Happy Halloween!

To celebrate our Halloween (since we'll likely be working) we went to a "Mystery Dinner" with a couple of our friends. The dinner was put on by our friends' ward, a married student ward, so everyone there was around our age. During dinner, something terrible happened. The lights went out, and when they came back on Frankenstein's body was found behind the piano. First the witch was accused, then count Dracula, the ghost, the mummy the pirate, etc. Each of them had their alibi along with a story giving someone else's motive for killing Frankenstein. Naturally, Death was handling all of the matters trying to sort out who had the most motive, and finally who killed him. By the time dessert rolled around, we were ready to find out who killed him. Right when Death was about to announce who killed Frankenstein, when Frankenstein walked in the room with jumper cables attached to him and he said, "I told you I was a little tired and I needed a jump start."

The menu consisted of some great items. For appetizers we could choose from Witch Skin, Cubed Ghost, or Monkey Brains. The main courses consisted of Head with Many Eyes, Fingers, or Witch of the West. Side dishes to choose from were Fuel, Papa Ya's Surprise, or Green Side Dish. For dessert we could have Snowy Grave or Dirty Bones. Naturally, the beverages were made from the tears of Ghosts, Witches or Ogres. If you want to know what I recognized them as, let me know.

On a sidenote, there is a semi-new Broadway musical called "Urinetown" that talks about the social issues in America. For instance, if everyone could do whatever they want whenever they want with whomever they want, the country would fall to pieces. Anyway, I highly recommend seeing this musical if you ever get the chance. It is absolutely hysterical! (It's playing in Logan Oct. 31 through Nov. 3. Call me for details.)

Happy Halloween!
