Last night's Trick or Treaters
I always talk to the trick or treaters.
To the kid dressed as a goul or skeleton I say, "You feeling OK? You don't look so good. Try more protien in your diet." That sort of thing.
Last night Minnie Mouse and Cinderella showed up. They were cute. I gave them each a couple pieces of candy and told thier mom's that that's the cheapest I've gotten away with when Disney characters are involved.
Hulk and Wolverine were together. I wanted to ask their dad if he knew the signifigance of thier pairing and decided not to be that much of a geek.
I had two teenagers show up. The girl was on her cell phone the whole time. I gave them extra so that she wouldn't drive her car on my lawn later.
One girl maybe 5th or 6th grade showed up. Her costume was split down the middle. She was a devil on one side and an angel on the other. I told her she was a contradiction. She looked around as if lost and said, "Uh, I'm not a dictionary." I had to explain.
Then was my favorite of the night. Kid about 5th grade, dressed in a red and black robe, hard to see his face... I drop candy in his bag. He says "that's my evil side" He spins around and says, "This is my good side." I laugh and throw in more candy. He spins again and says, "This is my nuetral side." I toss in one more piece. He spins again and I say, "You better get out of here before the top side of my foot finds your back side."
Later my wife and I switched places and I took my kids around which is the most fun, but I always try and make the most of sitting on my porch giving out candy.
