True to form, we had to do our annual crap-we-forgot-to-buy-candy-for-the-kids routine. Some lucky kids received the Godiva chocolate that I got as a gift last week, while the not-so lucky ones got the banana Laffy Taffies that have been sitting in a bowl on our coffee table for a month because they’re the reject flavor.
Speaking of trick-or-treaters, I believe that our neighborhood attracts an inordinate amount of “trick-or-treaters” with no costume. Is it just me, or is that lame and undeserving of my delicious candy? I was tempted to withhold candy from the trick-or-cheaters, but their moms were there and they looked like they could beat me up. Moreover, there were at least three different people who were over the age of 50 (I’m not kidding), and who were NOT dressed in costume, who came to the door. At first I thought these folks were bringing their kids (or grandkids) to get candy, but that changed when they stood there sans children, holding out their plastic bags expectantly.
Me: Um, where’s your costume? And aren’t you a little too old to be doing this, anyway?
Old Dude: (shrugs shoulders) Hehe.
After deciding it would be simpler to just give some candy to Old Dude, he walked away saying, “See you next year!” How wrong is that?
Tell me, what’s been your most creative Halloween costume?
