I made some cracker jack treat bags to give out to the beggars; popcorn, sorghum, honey from our bees, pepitas and a little hot pepper. Just a little hot pepper. I decided to put in a creepy, black plastic spider, for the trick.
Later that night, as we sat down to watch a movie, I opened a leftover package and dumped it into a dish. What's that! I jumped when the creepy plastic spider fell into my bowl. Tricked me!
