Hallowe’en brings out the “BooBerry”

I was hoping there’d be ridiculous postings today of people dressing up like BlackBerrys and BlueTooth headsets for trick or treating, but alas, the inbox remains pictureless (the day’s young, though).

But Rogers got some folks into the holiday spirit with their annual Halloween Writing Contest, inviting kids to complete a story that’s first paragraph was penned by Cambridge Mayor Doug Craig, Waterloo regional police Chief Larry Gravill, Rangers hockey player Justin Azevedo or the Hamilton Record’s editor-in-chief Lynn Haddrall. You can bet your sweet pumpkin a BlackBerry was involved.

Here, in it’s partialness, is the winning entry from 12-year old Claudio Bolejszo:

Jane was working alone in the newsroom on Halloween, when her BlackBerry flashed an urgent message — HELP ME! “This must be a joke,” Jane thought. “Someone is just trying to scare me.” But she decided to respond. “Who are you? What can I do to help you?” The response sent a chill down her spine . . .

The response said, “I know where you are and I am coming to get you!” Jane still thought it was still a practical joke so she put her BlackBerry in her pocket.

She realized her shift was over so she went to open the door, but it was locked. When she went to get her keys to unlock the door the room became dark because the lights had turned off.

Jane started to scream, “If you’re trying to scare me it’s working! Just come out!”

No one came, Jane knew this was no joke and started to hear someone breathing heavily. It kept on getting closer, Jane began to run but she didn’t know where she was going.

All of a sudden, her BlackBerry sent a message. She took it out and read it aloud, “You can run, but you can’t hide!”

Jane had a panic attack and yelled, “What do you want?”

What do they want? Read on! Thanks to BBHub for pointing us in the right direction.
