We Guessed Wrong.

    Last night was the first Halloween for us living in the new house.  We had no idea what to expect, in fact if I had to guess, I would have guessed that there were going to be few trick or treaters.  We had gotten three bags of candy and 45 minutes later I was out the door scurrying to get more.  We couldn’t believe it.  The first Wilson Farms was out of candy, so I tried another that was about a mile away.  Luckily there were bags of candy left at inflated prices.  I figured three more bags should work and they did.  Barely.
    I realized one thing after this experience.  I pretty much hate Halloween.  The occasional little kid walking with their parents in a ridiculous costume sometimes made it all seem worth it, but not quite.  I wonder if this is what it was like when I was little?  Then I wonder how annoying it was for people when I reached that awkward age and was still trick or treating.  I know that I was annoyed when the occasional 15 year old, 18 year old, and 40 year old (?) stopped by for a treat.  Did I miss something?  That’s right, a 40 year old women (she could have been mid 30’s) actually came to our house with her plastic bag asking for candy…and you have no choice really.  I mean, you do…and then you risk becoming a target for later issues.  The lack of costumes was also pretty amazing.  It’s not worth it.  Halloween is pretty terrible.
