Emily wised up this year, and I am very sad about her smarts. Normally the kids have to give me their candy bags "for inspection." That is when I loot my children blind. I mean, when I remove all of the Almond Joys, York Peppermint Patties, and possibly Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (but only the smooshed ones. I'm not a monster.)

She flat out refused last night. She gave me a dirty look and said to her father, "I know Mom's trick and she's not getting any of my stuff this time."


I am sour facing all over the place, even if my waist line is not unhappy about this. (I still have booze, after all.)

ION, the little boys down the street that The Boy normally babysits for went trick or treating for him, since he couldn't go. :) I sent their parents a text telling them how awesome I think they are.

(And of course, I'll have them deliver it before The Boy comes home so I can relieve the bag of those pesky Almond Joys. MUAH AH AH.) Okay, so I am a monster. A MONSTER WITH DELICIOUS TREATS.

The boys down the street are awesome.

Aaaaand frankly I'm all for adults receiving their own damn candy, if they come with the kids and they bother to dress up. (This is a digression from the candy-inspection scamola.) I don't care how old you are when you hit my porch, if you're in costume, you deserve candy.

(And if you're not in costume and you're not under 10, you deserve me holding up a No Solicitors sign. But as long as you hold out a bag you get candy anyway, because I'm both too nice and too socially awkward to express that to people's faces.)

They really are terrific kids.

I LIKE THE CUT OF YOUR JIB. AND COAT. AND OTHER THINGS THAT CAN BE CUT. Like the line at your front door so I can have more delicious treats.

I like you too. My daughter said she got dirty looks for going with her brother (she's only 16 and WAS dressed up).

Too bad I live in a development that's hard for kids to get to so we don't get T-or-Ters. :(


Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
