Needed: a Top 10 Halloween idea
I feel like next week's Top 10 Tuesday should have a Halloween theme. I know even as I type this that it's a stupid idea. I have another story due next week so I don't want it to be difficult, but can I get away with Top 10 Halloween Candies? I don't think so.
Or because Halloween falls on a Friday this year, Top 10 Restaurants to Celebrate Halloween? I'm thinking they would qualify because of their great decorating, or drinks or menus with a Halloween theme. Do restaurants even do this? ...
It reminds me of an article in Woman's Day about throwing a Halloween-themed Alfred Hitchcock party that fascinated me as a child. I don't remember much of it except that one thing you could do was make green Jell-O, pour it over either a naked baby doll or some of its parts, and let it set. That would be the centerpiece.
I also remember one of the games we played at some children's Halloween party in the distant past that had a food theme: Everyone was blindfolded and we were told they were passing around an ear (a dried apricot), an eyeball (a peeled grape) and intestines (cold spaghetti).
I guess none of that would work for a Top 10.
