Tonight we got our first trick-or-treater in three years. He was our nephew Jordan from next door. He was dressed up like a kangaroo. He was about ten minutes into his Halloween adventure and he looked like he was already over it.
You really need to be a few years older to grasp the full gravity of FREE CANDY. There is no better buzz than to walk around in spooky clothes slamming down hands full of candy.
When you have a bunch of kids you have a lot of bartering going on as the night progresses. I'll give you five Smarties and a Tootsie Roll for four MaryJanes. Are you going to eat that candied apple? "I'll give you all the licorice in my bag." "I'd rather snort a fireball!"
If you want to mainline some candy, I recommend Pixie Stix. They are pure sugar with a little bit of food coloring to make you tongue turn blue. Pound for pound, there is no confectionery substitute. A dozen of those things and you have a quality Halloween buzz.
Oh sure, if you hit some high falutin neighborhoods you might get some Godiva or Ghirardelli chocolate but sometimes they try to put some healthy treats on you. When it comes to that, you cut your losses and move on to the trailer parks where they know how to treat kids.
Anyhow, I hope you all have a great (and safe) Halloween.
