Fancy joining myself and Nat in Ben Crouches for halloween drinks tonight?
I had thought the other day that Ben Crouches would be a fun pub in which to spend Halloween. After all, the place is adorned with such spooky goodness as this funky gremlin all year round:
So, I accepted the invitation, and headed off towards the pub.
On our table was a pumpkin, all ready to be carved. So, after we ate, Nat and I used our knives to carve a face into it.
I did the right eye and the nose. Nat did the left eye and the mouth. Rob refused to participate in the carvage because he feared the pumpkin would collapse.
It didn't stop him playing with the removed pieces once the carving had been done:
Very soon, our pumpkin looked like this:
And Rob decided to name him "Eric."
We did not have any candles about our persons unfortunately. We did however have mobile phones, so we managed to make Eric glow:
At some point during the evening, I acquired a hat:
Of course, Eric tried it on:
Turns out that Eric's a smoker:
And when he ran out of cigarettes, he got desperate and tried to smoke a tube of Smarties:
Eric and Rob had a deep and meaningful conversation:
Though, at some point in the conversation, Eric said something shocking:
Eric and I got on well:
Perhaps a little too well:
And then, after I'd worked my way through over half of the Seven Deadly Sins cocktail menu, it was time to go. Nat gave Eric a very sweet goodbye kiss:
And we left Eric on the table for others to appreciate our creativity (but I wore my hat all the way home).
