Need A Man? Become A Halloween Fan!

The cat finds all kinds of ridiculous things around, but you humans can really astound. Are you that simple at your sea? Yeah, it really doesn't surprise me.

When you're in need,
And Halloween is near,
Come plant a seed,
And a man will appear.

Bury a ring in a potato plate.
Then sit around and hope.
Halloween is the date,
Where you'll catch a dope.

The guy who eats it is your mate.
There is no other for you.
So just trust good old fate,
And wait for him to step in view.

Name hazelnuts at your sea.
Name them guy 1, 2 and 3.
Then go on a pyro spree.
Throw them in a fire with glee.

The hazelnut that doesn't pop,
Or explode in the fire,
And instead burns non stop,
Will be the name of the guy you aspire.

Maybe make up a drink,
One from which diabetes will be had.
Yeah, not water from the sink,
That too is bad.

Fill it with sugar stuff,
Then suck it back.
You'll dream of the hot stuff,
And marry him at your shack.

Or just get an apple,
Then cut off the skin.
No need to grapple,
Toss it over your shoulder for the win.

Then turn and stare.
The peel is so wise.
It will make you be aware,
The face of your future guys.

But if that isn't for you,
Just start apple bobbing away.
The first to make it through,
Will marry the next day.

Geez, desperate much? Maybe more than a touch. Not sure if the guys did anything, but women sure wanted that ring. Superstitions far and wide. Glad such idiotic things died. But now we have more that I can sass, which I do with my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

      or you might get some dirty deeds..
      but, hey they're done dirt cheap...haha

  2. Wow I never heard of any of these crazy superstitions. Interesting how they all involve food like that old saying, "the key to a man's heart is through his stomach". I never believed that. Guys don't care about food until after an all night sexcapade.

  3. Superstition, man perdition, is it a kind of joke
    Women do the strangest things to find themselves a bloke
    Spin the wheel
    Man of steel
    Does he appeal
    What a deal
    Do you go to great lengths to get your wish
    Maybe it's all just one big kettle of fish

    1. Probably better off
      Dunking their head in a horse trough
      Or making a wish

  8. The only one I've ever heard is to put a piece of wedding cake under your pillow and you will dream of your future spouse.

  18. Hey, Pat! I was thinking of apple peels as I was reading the first part of you post. And then, of course, you tossed those peels in ~ maybe it's a Nova Scotian thing. I would often help my grandmother MacDonald peeling apples for a pie or crisp, and she would always tease me about tossing the peels over my shoulder to reveal my future.

    Thanks for reminding me of that today,
    as I get caught up at your bay!

    I'm always laughing and scratching my head,
    as you go to places that cause others dread!

    Sex in the afterlife and how to get to heaven,
    holy platypuses and cryptocurrency,
    cat search engine results ~
    It's really funny to see where your brain goes, Cat,
    even when I don't get where it's at!

    Have a good one
    under your sun!

      Sometimes I can confuse
      But it sure does amuse
