I went to Bennett’s Curse last night with some friends from my M.F.A. program. The haunted house itself was kind of cool but not scary; maybe I was in a bad spot (in the middle of a bunch of people), but nothing managed to surprise/scare me. It was more of a bonding experience than anything else. The girls wanted to make a human chain, in case they were scared, so I locked arms with my roommate, Kari, for some of it. The second part of the haunted house was a waste. It was mostly just a maze, and there was a guy with a chainsaw at the end, but he didn’t come out until after I had exited. This definitely was not worth $20, but we didn’t mind. It was a fun thing to do together.
Afterwards, we went to a bar/brewery in Hanover and talked, drank (some of us more than others…), and (some of us) ate. It was a good time, just like standing in line for over an hour for Bennett’s Curse. Good conversation. :-)
