So, we live in a fairly large neighborhood... completely flat streets, houses fairly close together. You know what that means for Halloween, right? Last year I bought six bags of candy, thinking it would be plenty. I ran out faster than I could have imagined and had to turn my lights out so people would stop knocking. This year I totally thought I was prepared: ten bags of candy. It had to be enough, right? I was way off again... where do these kids come from?! I didn't even recognize half the kids that I gave candy to. And, when I was finally out I turned off our porch lights and closed the blinds in the windows by the front door. Did that stop them from ringing and knocking? Nope. I bet I had twenty kids come to the door after all my "I'm out of candy" precautions were taken. Some of them were persistent little buggers. I actually had to open the door to get them to stop knocking. Now, isn't there some kind of unwritten Trick-or-Treating rule that states if the porch light is off, you don't knock? Maybe I just grew up in a different time, different place. So, my resolve for next year is to buy 15 bags of candy... and one really big bag of lollipops- to be on the safe side.
