Etiquetteer, along with Weeping Baby Pumpkin Head II and Weeping Baby Pumpkin Head III, would like to wish you a safe, happy, and Perfectly Proper Hallowe’en!
Trick-or-treating is a joyous annual ritual for millions of people - especially, of course, children - but there are adults who simply don’t care for it and would like to avoid it altogether. If you’re one of those adults, the most Perfectly Proper way to avoid trick-or-treating is simply not to be at home. Treat yourself to a Nice Dinner someplace that doesn’t have pumpkin on the menu, and go home after 9:00 PM, when all the hoopla seems to have died down.
If that’s not an option, the most Perfectly Proper thing to do is to be sure your house is completely dark from the outside. Turn off all those outdoor lights, and not one little sliver of light must escape from any window. Use blackout drapes if necessary. Put in your headphones and listen to some scary music. All your efforts will still lead the occasional trick-or-treater to ring your doorbell. Whatever you do, DON’T ANSWER THE DOOR! Etiquetteer promises they will eventually go away.
For those of you who know Etiquetteer exceptionally well, Hallowe’en also marks the sad anniversary of the demise of Weeping Baby Pumpkin Head I. Etiquetteer is so grateful to the two generous benefactors who brought Weeping Baby Pumpkin Heads II and III into the Etiquetteer universe. Their identities will be kept secret to protect them from the hordes of pumpkin-haters.
