only two

Byline: | Category: Uncategorized | Posted at: Monday, 31 October 2005

That’s the total number of trick-or-treaters to come by here as of two-and-a-half hours into this Halloween night. 

Granted, we live on a fairly busy street, but at least the houses are set back far from the road.  And tonight, unlike any other night, I don’t mind you cutting across the lawn.

I’ll make it worth your while.  I’ve got Hershey bars.  And not the mini kind.  Not even the size that you generally find in vending machines.  These are the big ones.  Enormous, actually. 

You’ve got thirty minutes left or these suckers are going to be stuck between two graham crackers along with some fire-roasted marshmallows.

    We live in a cul-de-sac of a child saturated neighborhood, but I think we only had a whopping 4 small groups of trick or treaters stop by. That left us with tons of extra candy that the wife has taken to unload at work, as we are likely to eat most of it in one sitting if it is there on the counter.

    Please mail the contraband to me for my inspection. The little bastards cleaned us out last night.

    One of the little punks demanded that I make him a sandwich.

    Whole candy bars? Why didn’t someone inform me?!
