Hello, I'm Witch Matilda, and I visit Laurie's home every October.
I'm glad you joined me for dinner.
Before dinner, I'll read your fortune with my Tarot cards.
Have some of my delicious cheese ball before dinner. Oh no! Boris hasn't put out the cheese ball.
My apologies. Please help yourself to a drink while we wait.
Maybe you'd like to see the mementos from my flight around the world celebration.
The celebration was a big deal. There's the invitation on the globe. Do I see one of my tasty spiders who escaped from the brew? I'll get you next time, you sneaky vermin.
I've retired the hat I wore on that famous around the world broom flight.
I know you must be getting hungry. BORIS! Bring that cheese ball. Why don't you fill a bag with popcorn to munch?
Go ahead. Fill the big bag.
Eat as much as you'd like. You can blame it on the devil!
Did you notice the drawing of me on the pumpkin? It was a gift from a secret admirer.
I can take you on a ride, if you'd like. You can see the cost is fifty cents, but since Boris is so slow, I won't even charge you for the ride.
I did decorate the table myself. Yes, I know my pumpkin-head is having a bad hair day. What? That red caped man. That's my voodoo doll. Don't worry. I wont give it your name -- yet.
I even have witchy clickers for favors, so don't get mad about your late dinner. BORIS! Get in here!
Did you read the menu? You'll surely stay after you see what I'm serving.
It's about time you showed up, Boris. Oh shoot! He's brought dessert instead of the cheese ball. What is wrong with that man?
It looks like we'll have to give up on the cheese ball. Please get a plate, a fork, and a napkin. I made the napkin sleeves from one of my old dresses. You think I don't save ideas on Pinterest? I'm a crafty old bird.
"Hand" will dish you up some brew. Just look at those delicious ingredients.
No, I didn't decorate the chandelier. Critters live up there. It adds so much flavor to my brew when they fall into the pot while I'm cooking.
I hope you enjoyed your meal. Be sure you stop by when I return to Laurie's next October.
