But still... I like to be prepared, you know what I mean?
I had slightly more little Trick or Treaters last year, (maybe 6 or 7?) but for several years before that, I only had 3 teenage boys.
Boys who would come around several times in the one night, all dressed up as ... Well, who knows what.
But they were tryin'.
They really were.
And I think their efforts needed to be rewarded.
Last year though, it was just the one teen aged boy on his own, and his voice had deepened to the point where he sounded like a man... But his eyes still lit up like a little boys, when he saw the candy.
And it did my heart good.
But, have you noticed that some things never change?
45+ years may have gone by since I dressed up as Casper the Friendly Ghost or a Leprechaun... and the colors and flavors may have changed slightly over time, but for every 10 red or blue or green or pink Tootsie Pop, there's only one chocolate one!
So I saved the "brown ones" for myself.
I can't have the little monsters arguing over the chocolate ones, now can I?
Somebody might get their feelings hurt.
And Spider here?
This year, Spider's going out dressed as *The Blob*
Happy Halloween, ghouls and boys!
