Halloween

This is my first Halloween as a homeowner and we've stocked up on candy bars to give to the neighborhood children. I wonder which of our unfriendly neighbors will show up at our door tonight. Anyway, I hope we've bought enough candy and I question of my wife's selections--do kids (or anyone for that matter) really like white chocolate reese cups? That sounds like a closeout brand that one might find at Big Lots. I know when I was a kid we'd get the Hershey miniatures and I couldn't give away the "special dark" flavor. Of course, special dark still rated above the black and orange wrappered taffy or that hard candy that looked like strawberries. Don't even waste my time with that stuff.

For fun, you might keep track of how many princesses, spidermen, cute animals, etc. you get. One year (yes, I am lame) I started figuring out how many pricesses were Disney and how many were Medieval...

LOL, yes, every female niece and cousin that I have is a princess this year. Well, save one newborn, she was a pea pod. Cute.

White chocolate is an abomination and against everything that is Right and Good. Bleah, bleah on the white chocolate.

Yeah, I had an older relative that use to load me up with butterscotch candy and circus peanuts. I may have appreciated it if, um, I had suffered through the great depression.

Oh, man, the black and orange wax paper taffy stuff. ACK. Just leave your light off and save us both the trouble.

I always like the special dark myself, but, then again, I always liked the black jellybeans. And beets. So, I'm not representative of the general population.

The cheap asses in my childhood neighborhood used to give out candy corn or apples. That used to piss me off royally.

And yes, I agree that circus peanuts really, really suck. Whoever created those things should be gored by an elephant.

Yeah, I had a neighbor lady who would give me an orange each year. Thanks for nothing.

Candy corn has some strange power over me. I don't really even like the taste but I'll keep eating it if it is front of me.

In some circles, candy corn is referred to as "crack."

I had some little shits warn me not to give them apples because they'll only throw them in the street. First of all, little boy, you don't dictate what I give to you. Second, like I am going to give away apples, apples cost around 50 cents a piece and I have over a 150 trick or treaters. There's no way I am doling out that kind of money for people I don't know or probably even like.

A neighbor gave out beef jerky, I kid you not.

Ghouls outnumbered princesses 3-1.
