Halloween Reflections

Trick or Treater Pic
If there was one thing I regretted saying during the evening, it was, "You can have more than one piece of candy if you like." Sometimes, it resulted in a child agonizing over whether or not to choose an extra Butterfinger or Snickers; but, just as often, it turned into a costumed vagabond grabbing a handful or two of sweets, running to the street, and shouting, "Thank you!" as he or she made a getaway. Disappointing. Then there was the little girl that heard the words and started shoving fistful after fistful into her bag, all the while her mother screaming, "I don't care what he said, you can't have ALL the candy!" I was okay with it, though. That little girl understood - candy favors the bold.

Happy Halloween!
