I thought of getting really cheap, really crappy candy....things like ribbon candy, butterscotch hard candy, and stale candy corn. That would definitely deter me from sampling out of the Halloween bowl but, like I said, I'm too soft-hearted to inflict that upon kids. They did go to all the trouble of dressing up in costume. The least I can do is give out something to make it worth their while and to perk up their parents who have to drag their little darlings all over the neighborhood.
So...I get the good stuff...stuff I like....hence the problem. There's the bowl by the door. Oooooh lookie, an Almond Joy, I love those things, just one, it's a small size. Hmmmm..Reese's...yum...just one....dang that was good, maybe one more. Kit Kat eh? I bet kids don't really like those, they're more an adult candy.
and on, and on, and on....till I turn off the lights so that there will not be a chance of any more trick or treaters while I sit in the dark gorging on the last Toostie Roll.
