Day 1178 of 365 4 lyf.

Trick or treat. When I was a kid, I thought whoever came up with it was a genius. Once a year you get to dress up and carry a pillow case around and hit up every house in a five mile radius for free candy. Everything you’d ever want out of a holiday as a kid.

What the fuck happened?

You know how many kids we got this year. None! Not a one! Zero point Zero!

Kids suck these days.

Oh well. At least there’s lots of leftover candy for me.

    We hit a record high of 7 this year. I think last year was 3 kids. It’s so disappointing!

    And now I have all this god damn candy sitting right in front of me tempting me.

    we didn’t get any either! But then, having just moved into this house in a totally new neighborhood I’m not actually sure if any appropriately-aged kids live in my area. This is why I only buy candy to give out that I’ll want to eat as leftovers. 🙂

    like_shipwrecks: yeah, I ate entirely too much last night.

    mickeyjohnson: the sad thing is, we have at least 7 or 8 kids who live right on our street. Not to mention those who live on other blocks. Any other time, you’re tripping all over them. I have no idea where they went on Saturday.

    They were knocking on my door eating all of my good chocolates!

    I didn’t get any trick or treaters because I had the lights off and wasn’t home.

    our neighborhood was fill with restless little dwarf spirits beggibg for candy
    wen i was a kid trick or treat meant exactly that
    for one night a year you were a child extortionist
    "gimme candy or else"
    we had a guy in town who the epiitomy of scrooge no matter what the holiday
    who used to call little kids on holloween "filthy little beggars"
    and he always awoke the next day to windows caked in soap and a house covered in toilet paper.
