The Next Day

"I was robbed! I spent the whole night waiting for the Great Pumpkin when I could have been out for tricks or treats! Halloween is over and I missed it! You blockhead! You kept me up all night waiting for the Great Pumpkin and all that came was a beagle! I didn't get a chance to go out for tricks or treats! And it was all your fault! I'll sue! What a fool I was. I could have had candy apples and gum! And cookies and money and all sorts of things! But no, I had to listen to you! You blockhead. What a fool I was. Trick or treats come only once a year. And I miss it by sitting in a pumpkin patch with a blockhead. You owe me restitution!"

So... we didn't get nearly as many kids as we wanted. And we had good candy - Reese's, Baby Ruths, 100 Grands, Butterfingers... But only a few, certainly not enough.

Maybe next year.

I miss the days when we ran around the neighborhood hoarding candy. Now, kids have to go to a designated safe area. Takes some of the fun out of it.
