"Who's There?"

Our doorbell rang at 10 p.m. tonight.

I went to the door, but no one was there.
Instead, there was a bag on the doorstep, not a flaming bag of poop, a gift bag.

Inside we found lots of goodies and this note:

So, apparently, we tape the BOO! sign on our front door and within 24 hours we have to make 2 copies of the note and the sign and secretly deliver it to 2 neighbors or friends who don't have a BOO! sign taped to their door.

The fun is to watch nearby front doors to see how far this has spread.

Fun neighbors are worth a million dollars.


  1. You're lucky to have fun neighbors. Mine only mow my lawn and babysit for free :)

  2. We got Booed, too, and we also got Ghosted (pretty much the same thing). I guess at some point the entire nation will get it, which is only fair.

    A few years ago I was out in the front yard, came inside for maybe 15 minutes and went back out again. In those few minutes someone or several someones had planted 14 pink plastic lawn flamingos in the yard, and left a sign that said "You have be flocked!" It turned out a neighbor kid had paid for it at a church charity auction to honor my wife, a Fun Mom, who runs an after-school activity that the kid had enjoyed. So we had flamingos in the yard for 3 or 4 days, then suddenly they were gone....

    Next they'll organize TPing into a charity fund raiser. "Congratulations! You've been TPed!"
