Well, our Halloween turnout was just as I had expected. We had about 30 Trick or Treaters come to the front door of the Lewis household last night. One girl actually came to house twice, apparently either happy or unhappy with what she was handed the first time around. The second time she came I handed her a generous helping of goodies before she reached into my bowl, grabbed a Kit Kat and said “I want that one!” When I got back into the house my wife asked, “wasn’t she here already?” She must love her Kit Kats.
Halloween is so different than when I was a kid. The streets were packed when my friends and I were heading from door to door. We didn’t need any fancy candy bags or plastic pumpkins to collect our goodies. We used the good old fashioned pillow case and we didn’t go home until that sucker was nearly full!
We’d actually get homemade popcorn balls in our sacks, and we ate them! Apples? We’d always get 3 or 4 of those. I left those alone. I was out for candy, not fruit!
Our granddaughters showed up at about six with their mother to show grandma and papa their costumes as well as receive a hefty gift of candy. They were having a ball, just the way it should be!
I always enjoy handing out candy to the kids on Halloween. With all of the leftovers, looks like I’ll be handing out candy to myself for the next week or so.
Ah, the advantages of buying way too much candy. Or would that be a disadvantage?
I’ll let you know how my tummy feels in a few days.
