Here's a Halloween tip: Fake plastic turds are not sexy. But scientists will surely agree that adrenaline is. If you can jolt your big, brave man out of his skin and get a surge of crazy adrenaline pumping through him, it'll definitely put some candy in his bowl (so to speak)! Here are a few tricks you can try that'll treat him.
Scary Writing on the Wall
Write a freaky message on the mirror, or in the shower, with your wet finger. The natural oils of your fingertip will be invisible until he steams up the room. Check your work by steaming up the surface with your breath. A few ideas:
- "I'm watching you -- every inch of you."
- "You look delicious."
- "Wash up good -- you're about to be eaten."
Which Sun signs should try it: Cancer, Scorpio and Virgo -- because they'll likely be in the mood to follow through.
Pull a Mystery Spook
This one takes some solid acting on your part. Play any number of tricks on yourself, in front of him: take the lid off the bowl containing the fake severed finger; open the cupboard to find the grotesque fake rat; you get the idea. Then react like crazy. Completely freak out. Tell him how he "really got you" this time. And when he swears he didn't do it, don't believe him. Then get even more creeped out. Demand to know: Who did it then?! (Cue scary music.)
Which Sun signs should try it: Leo, Pisces and Sagittarius -- their natural persuasiveness will be a major help.
Instead of a sexy costume, find one that's unrecognizable -- and preferably scary as hell. When he thinks he's alone in the house, put on the costume and hide. At first, just make weird little noises -- the kind that could have been made by a breeze. When you sense you've got his attention, get louder and freakier. Finally, jump out in full monster mode. It may be silly, but it'll prove surprisingly effective.
Which Sun signs should try it: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius -- for their Air sign lightness and affinity for the spirit world.
In which you wait quietly in the shower until he comes in to use the toilet -- hopefully in a number one kind of way, for then you can quite literally almost make him wet himself. Granted, it's juvenile and perhaps even a little mean, so first you'll want to consider your man and whether he'll find it amusing in the end. After all, nobody's expecting to be startled in that moment right before they relieve themselves ... and that's what will make this scare so memorable.
Which Sun signs should try it: Capricorn, Aries and Taurus -- because they can summon the loudest "Boo!"
