Saturday night Kiefer and I took Boo (age 12) and Radley (nearly 10) to Markoff’s Haunted Forest.
It’s like a haunted house…except it’s a forest. It’s really scary.
Imagine stumbling around in the dark, only to be temporarily blinded by a bright light, and once your sight returns, a creepy guy is in your face with a knife. All the while, you can hear the people screaming at the sounds of a chainsaw.
Saturday morning we started having second thoughts about bringing Boo and Radley.
Kiefer: If you start to get scared, just remember it’s not real.
Thoughtsy: Think of it as looking for Halloween costume ideas. And there’s not even a chain in the chainsaw.
To enter the forest, first you go through a little cave, and at the exit stands a really creepy looking guy.
He took it easy on Boo and Radley because Boo hung on Kiefer’s right arm while Radley held Kiefer’s left with a death grip.
But just when I thought I made it past him, he wrapped his arm around my shoulders, gently touched my ear, and growled in the other ear.
I did what any normal girl would do. I screamed bloody murder.
Radley begged to stop and go back. But after a few seconds, he calmed down and wanted to keep going.
At the really scary parts, I heard this:
Boo or Radley: They’re not real….
Kiefer: Stop pulling on my hoodie! You’re choking me!
Really Kiefer was lucky he made it out alive.
