[image-1](Chad Hunt / StyleWeekly)1. When you were a kid, how long did your bag of candy last before every piece was either gobbled or petrified?
My three brothers and I usually had an after-Halloween stash that would last us at least six months. My mother, however, would always donate much of it to the church to be given to sick and shut-in kids. We were sometimes able to salvage a week's worth of goodies. 2. Did you ever actually eat the Bit-O-Honey?
No. Honey gives me the hives. Yuck! 3. What was your greatest achievement in a Halloween costume?
Fighting off the community bully that was attempting to snatch my Halloween bag. 4. Which Halloween costume of yours is potential blackmail material?
In college, my fraternity pledge line had to dress as topless go-go girls for Halloween. I won most likely to succeed. 5. What scares you to your core?
A reduced police department budget! 6. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
The power to extend the good cheer, generosity and spirit of the holiday season to each day of the year. 7. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?
One of my toddler sons, Jacob or Joshua, innocently discovering everything new and taking nothing for granted. 8. Who is the scariest person you've ever met?
When I was a teenager, my dad at 11:05 p.m. when I was told to be home at 11:00. 9. Who's the coolest: Dracula, Frankenstein or the Wolfman?
Dracula. Even though he needed an orthodontist, he was down with the latest wear with never a hair out of place. 10. Have you ever had a paranormal experience?
Yes. I saw my life flash before my eyes when, some many years ago, my mother caught me and my girlfriend alone in my bedroom, under some other-than-respectable circumstances, contrary to her house rules. See the answers
