Disappointing Halloween



After being in a high-rise apartment building full of singles, couples with no kids, and old people, I was looking foward to having trick-or-treaters this year. I was going to wear something silly and throw candy at children...really is there a better way to spend the evening?

I rushed home after work (this was the night before my first event for A2-Alz. Assoc, so I was freaking), picked up Ken from school, forgot I had no candy, rushed to the store, grabbed the only candy that wasn't that gross black-and-orange silly-putty-taffy candy, and turned my porch light on and waited. And waited...and waited. Nothing happened...no kids prancing around as a Telletubie or punk rocker. I am very dissapointed and very sick of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups--Ken likes them so I got alot to give him the extra, but not we are way too chockful of peanuty "goodness."

This is the first house we have actually had trick or treaters. It's funny . . . I think kids don't get out as much anymore. I didn't see ANY groups of kids at all, just parents chaperoning single kids. Weird, huh?

Hate that! I ended up taking lots of sweets in to work with me the next day! And I even had a lit Jack
O'Lantarn in the window and everything! Well, at least Munchkin and I had fun carving that!
