Blake’s Advice Column
I am a nurse any my husband is a cop. Everyone Halloween we always go to a haunted house, but he always says he never gets scared, and as a cop, he has no fear. I know he’s lying because on a few incidents he was a little shaken, even though he’ll never admit it. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do this Halloween that will scare the life out of him?

I think cops more often than not can be pretty fearless. So it would be entertaining to watch one reduced to sniveling wimp. Because you’re a nurse here’s the idea. Sneak some drugs out of the hospital and use them to sedate your husband. Also purchase a mannequin that’s approximately his size. Take a shirt and pair of pants that he owns, cut them each in half, and put the arms and legs of the mannequin in them in different spots across the room, sprinkled with fake blood. Make sure that when your husband wakes up, he cannot feel his arms or legs. When he looks across the room, he’ll think he’s been dismembered, and will more than likely scream in terror. One other thing. After you undress him, be sure and replace his shorts with some extra strength Depends, because with his reaction, he’ll probably need them. I hope this helps.
