Giveaway Extravaganza Day #5

Trick or treat…?

How to frighten away your in-laws:

You should pretend that you’ve become a zombie and be making breakfast one morning, but just moving the dishes from one side of the sink to the other.

Then when they come in, you can sloooooowly turn around and show them your fake-blood face and then say “braaaaaaaaaains” and slink after them until they actually start to freak out.

Or make your husband come first, and then you can actually gnaw on his shoulder and he can have a ketchup packet in there and it can EXPLODE and insanity ensues!
