To "Scare" can be to "Hunt"
Thinking about it, sometimes patience is required, waiting for that right moment, that certain person to walk passed you or waiting until they seem very calm and self-assured(they have reset)
when I was a kid we would play "Army" and I usually won because I had the patience to out wait the rest of them, along with the fact that I would crawl into small, scary, forbidden hiding places the rest of them wouldn't. Sounds like real-life, "Play" training for a haunted house to me.
I live in a rural area with bountiful game and fish and seasons for actually hunting those animals but I am not intrested in such activitys.
People are alot more fun, but harder to explain to the game warden.
One cold night I laid in a coffin probably 3 hours waiting to scare a group supposed to be arriving here. they finally showed up, I scared them!
One night a classmate of mine who usually drank too much was found laying beside a grave marker (the monument business is neighbor to the one tavern)
When he was asked what he was doing laying there? He responded, "I'm just taking this gravestone for a test drive."
I bet it would have excellant brakes!
