Sour Cream Chicken Enchilada

Do you ever watch scary movies? How about old scary movies? The old movies tend to be pretty funny. I grew up watching scary movies with my Dad so they tend not to scare me. I know what to expect especially when the scary movie starts or it is unusually quiet. I have a knack for predicting who will make it till the end. My husband does not watch scary movies with me. My husband is a big tough man and I love to scare him during the movie. He doesn't find this to be funny even if I do. One time, my paternal family members were visiting and they attempted to scare him. I guess it must be a paternal trait.
