BAH HALLOWEEN-

I feel I'm nearing the point of not turning on my porch light for Trick or Treat-ers anymore.

My bones creak and groan with even the thought of getting up and down from Daddio's Lazy Boy chair to answer the door.

I'm about ready to punch the next pint sized terrorist that kicks my door or lays on my doorbell.

(The candy lady's old bladder does call every now and again)

I don't mind passing the goodies to the kids over 16, seriously, I simply look past the lip and eyebrow piercings and the tatts and drop in a miniature Milky Way bar.

But the babies...

the toothless babies may just be where I draw the line.

A friend at work and I shared old lady horror stories yesterday of our Halloween adventures.

I too had (several, actually) young-ins pass me their own bag and then another bag saying "it's for my brother/sister"... pointing to a baby in a stroller.

Not a toddler mind you... the babies in those strollers still smelled of afterbirth.

Should there have been a warning issued to the parents piloting the stroller...?

"Hey, can that kid, the toothless one, chow nuts yet?"

"The coconut in this Almond Joy may prove a choking hazard for those with only a suckling instinct"....

When, when exactly when did I become such an evil spirited old bag?

A work in progress I guess.

Tell me your Halloween tales..

Or am I alone in my misery?

  1. We haven't even had Halloween yet, not here until Sunday, ha. I know what you mean about the babies in the strollers but I give it anyhow, it's better then when I have leftovers and then I have to eat it lol.

  2. We only had 10 kids total, and my house was the only one in our court w/ a light on. I may skip it starting next year too. My niece actually posted on FB that they took her 1 yr. old stepson out & they were eating all 'his' candy. It took quite a bit for me not to tell her how pathetic that was... You're not the only one!

  3. You'll be happy to hear we took Claire to visit the neighbor then left her with Granny while the older ones gathered their treats.
    Although afterwards Claire tried to steal the suckers and twizzlers from the older three LOL must have felt good on her sore gums!

  4. I didn't even turn on my lights this year. Last year we had quite a few kids, but I just wasn't feeling it this year. Plus, candy ain't cheap and I just couldn't stomach passing out candy to anymore rude kids.

Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
