Treats. I usually get about 30 kids a year, including the kid who is clearly out of high school that shows up around 8:30 or so. Maybe I'll card him and then put a Dos Equis in his trick or treat bag this year.
We are far enough out in the French countryside at the minute that if anyone knocks on the door I am diving under the bed, unless it is the Foreign Legion up from Marseille on a random colon checking expedition.
Because it's so much fun to see the little ones in their costumes, I'll be handing out treats. The lights will go off by 9 PM, however, because that's when the kids who are too old to be trick-or-treating show up. If there are left-overs in the candy dish, that's fine, even though I don't eat the stuff, because I always buy the type with gold-toned foil wrappers that look nice with my decor.
I've lived in my home (a condo) for seven years and have never had anyone stop by. That seems to be the case for the whole complex. I last bought candy in 2004 (I remember giving it away at work after the Red Sox won the World Series).
My roomie bought candy and then bailed out on me to pass out the candy as he is out with his niece whom is collecting candy. He trapped me by asking me what my plans were before he told me what his plans was.
I am so bored with hardly any kids stopping by. I did my homework for school as I worked on drinking a bottle of wine. Going out later with a pack a friends, so at least the remainder of the evening will be fun.
ruck_us saidBought a bag of Hershey's Miniatures, but not a single ghost or goblin tricked or treated me.
More candy left over for you!!!
I had an unusually strong showing of kids. Everyone said Halloween was going to be big this year.
I left my dog by the front door so I wouldn't miss any of them. My doorbell has been broken for like two years. But she didn't bark at any of the kids, so I waited outside for a while with my neighbor so I wouldn't miss any of them.
