Old Man Jeffords


Two youths stand in the background. One gestures at a man in the foreground. The man has a long, white-and-grey beard, a somewhat dazed expression, and wears an old white bedsheet like a poncho. He says, "boo?" The gesturing youth explains, "That's old man Jeffords. He put on that bedsheet on Halloween night twenty-some years ago, looked in the mirror, & scared himself so bad he thought he'd died & become a ghost on the spot. Acts like one ever since."

 He thinks his unfinished business is giving away candy, so it's pretty much a best-case scenario.
