Pumpkin Head

Craig was a fun guy, but he sometimes took things too far. We were going to a Halloween party and he wanted us to go as matching pumpkins. The problem was, he didn't want to use masks; he wanted to use real pumpkins instead. He cut them open and carved them, and then he made a big hole at the bottom for our heads. I lasted exactly four seconds in mine and the goo from inside the pumpkin began to run down my scalp. I went home, took a shower, and decided sometimes too much fun in a guy was a bad thing.
