Supernatural Friday: Going Camping Can Be Scary

It is still summer, but things connected with autumn and even Halloween are slowly appearing in stores, and the fist Spirit of Halloween stores have opened. So how to get your fix of Halloween, but while summer is still here technically? By going camping and telling spooky tales around the campfire.

Telling tales around the campfire has been going on since—well, since the cave man times when the shaman of the tribe told stories of monsters, spirits and gods to his or her people.  Many tales are also told around the fire burning in a hearth indoors, but that happened later when it was cold outside.

So, I will tell a couple of urban legends to get you started to tell around your own campfire.

Good Thing the Light Wasn’t Turned on……
TWO girls who shared a room at a dorm in college. Both were in the same science class. The teacher reminded them about the midterm the next day. But outside of class, one of the girls was asked to a big bash by the hottest guy in school. The other girl had no interest in going and, being a diligent student, she decided studying for the test was more important.
At the end of the day, the one going, tried to get other to go, but she was insistent that she would study and pass the test. The girls were rather close and party girl didn't like leaving her roommate alone to be bored while she was out having a blast.  But her friend told her to go on.
The party goer went to the party and had the time of her life. She headed back to the dorm around 2 a.m. and was careful not to wake her friend up, keeping the lights off as the other was already in bed.  
She woke up early and went to wake her roommate. The girl was lying on her back, apparently sound asleep. Party girl shook her friend over but the other never responded Concerned, party girl turned on the desk lamp. She saw the science books and notes still on the bed, with blood all over it. To her horror, she saw her friend had been slaughtered and fell to the floor. She looked up and saw written on the wall in Meg's blood: "AREN'T YOU GLAD YOU DIDN'T TURN ON THE LIGHT?"

The Man with the Hook…….
A TEENAGE boy took his date to a dark and deserted Lovers' Lane for a make-out session in his vehicle. The radio set to some romantic music to set the mood, he began to kiss her.
Suddenly, the music stopped and an announcer's voice came on, warning about a convicted murderer that just escaped from the state insane asylum and that anyone who noticed a strange man lurking about with a hook in place of his right hand should immediately report his whereabouts to the police.  This asylum happened to be located not far from Lovers' Lane.
The girl grew scared and asked to be taken home. The boy, though, locked all the doors and assured his date they would be safe. He attempted to kiss her again, but she pushed him away and insisted they leave. NOW! Not happy about his date cute short, the boy turned the key in the ignition, the engine roared to life, and he jerked the car into gear and spun its wheels as he drove away.

When they arrived at the girl's house, she stepped out of the car, and as she closed the door, began to scream. The boy bolted from the driver’s side and ran to her side to see what was wrong.  There, dangling from the door handle, was a bloody hook!
