Currently Reading: Finished Inking Aaron; I need to ask Cheryl if this is a sequel to Sorority Girl Pledge. Some characters sound familiar. I'm also loving Rose Quartz! I think I'm on Ch. 4.
I love living in town. Why? The kids get to trick-or-treat two nights in a row!
To be fair, it can be hard on the parents, providing candy both nights. But I remember being a kid and not ready for the evening to be over.
We had about twenty houses in our neighborhood, so in two hours we'd made the rounds. I always wanted to put on another costume and make another loop! But Mom always said no.
Some businesses had the Safe Trick-or-Treating last night; others along a particular stretch of road are doing it tonight. My daughter and her friend took the toddler around a three-block area, and returned with bulging sacks.
Then, the toddler decided to hang out on the front porch and hand out the candy.
Every time our 'Jose Jalepeno on a stick' (talking skull on a spike) would go off, my four-year-old would yell, "We've got customers!" and run down to the sidewalk with his jack-o-lantern, which he filled with candy when Mom refused to let him carry the cauldron which held the rest of the candy.
And when there was a lull, I caught him down on the corner, handing out Nestle Crunch Bars to anyone who would take them. (Yes, I hauled him home and put him in Time-Out for not staying on the porch!)
Tonight, he and I will make the rounds in the opposite direction from where he went last night, and afterwards, I might pop in Phantom of the Opera and settle down with a White Russian or two.
NaNo starts tomorrow; how many are participating this year?
Be safe tonight everyone, whether you're at a party or making the rounds with your own children. I'm ordering pizza at 4 pm, so be here early if you want to hang out!
