Getting Broo-ed!

My friend Amy is a genius. And she's funny as all get out. I just love her.

She'd heard about a friend who had been "broo-ed" in the neighborhood, and it prompted her to write this amazing poem. I had to share.

Many a neighborhood this time of year goes through a "Boo-ing" where you leave a mysterious package at someone's doorstep (usually candy and goodies), ring the bell and run. But this one is for adults only. It's meant to be left with a 6-pack of beer for a friend. Cute idea!

You’ve Been Br-oo-ed!
A poem for adults

Soon it will be time to trick or treat,
With excited children under your feet.
For the costumes and candy we make a big fuss,
But outside of walking, what’s in it for us?

Lucky for you, a drunk ghost came to call
To ensure that you also have a festive, fun fall.
This beer might be the best you ever have tasted
But as you walk ‘round the neighborhood, try not to get wasted.

Pass this on or not, the drunk ghosts don’t care.
But if you do, heed this warning and just be aware
To only “B(r)-oo” adults who might like to drink
Or you might spend a spooky, dark night in the clink.

Making Halloween fun for adults is our mission
By starting a grand new drinking tradition.
So just pop a cold one on Halloween night,
And while you might stumble, your mood will be bright!
Happy Halloween!!
