It was a way to give someone else chills (quite nice in hot Texas weather!) You stood behind someone and performed actions on their back with your hands as you said the lines. Our went:
X marks the spot (draw a big X on their back)
A dash and a dot (draw an exclamation point)
Two bullet holes (jab them lightly twice)
Blood runs down (Draw your palms down their back, mimicking bloodstreams]
Cool breeze [blow gently on the back of their neck]
And chills [said with a dropped voice, dramatically]
And then you stood back to watch them shiver. :) Did anyone else here do something of the sort? What was your variant?
*I'm not 100% on this line, but can't find anything else that sounds familiar. Presumably you'd give a quick squeeze to their shoulders or something.
