October: a month that I look forward to every year. It has everything that I love in it; The World Series, College Football, Pro Football, The changing of the leaves, and of Course Halloween. As a child I couldn’t wait to dress up in costume and go trick-or-treating. I would come home with bags full of candy and treats. You could never wipe that smile I had off my face.
As a teenager, I stopped going trick-or-treating and started going to haunted houses. Me and my friends would always go looking for the scariest one. We tried them all, and we were always able to walk out with no problem. As a matter of fact, if one of us didn’t finish the haunted house, that person was pounded by the rest of the group. I was never pounded.
While I am on the subject of haunted houses; I should mention that a few years back we sent the lovely Ashley Lobo to the Statesville Haunted Prison. Ashley, being the brave soul that she is accepted this challenge. So off she went to tackle the ghouls and goblins that roam the prison at night.
This was the single piece that inspired the new format of this Newer-er NUDE HIPPO, with the storyline, creative editing and just a plain fun time getting you the viewer the story, without doing some half-fast boring report about some place that you would never care about anyway.
Enjoy, and remember, beware of things that go bump in the night.
