Drawing of a scythe, a tool used on farms to cut grass or reap crops.

My parents recently sold their house and most of their belongings.

Along with the scythe, I inherited a corn cutter, a pitchfork, some walking sticks (gifts from some hippie friends they don’t see much anymore), a bedroom set, a cabinet to hold one’s curios and lots of other odds-n-ends.

Keith and I are wondering if one of us should dress up as the Grim Reaper on Halloween and jump out at trick-or-treaters with the scythe in hand.

I think we’d get in a lot of trouble with parents but some of the kids would love it.
