Ahhh Halloween, the most anticipated time of the year for dentists. This is the time that we take our kids to the homes of total strangers and beg for food...sounds like fun!!....LOL
I used to go trick or treating until I was about 10, every year after that, I managed to be grounded and could not go. Now that I'm an adult, I think that was my parents way of saying I had no business out there any damn way since I always had candy left over at Christmas.
What I fail to understand is what happened to kids getting into mom and dad's closets, being creative and coming up with their own costume? Hmm..I wonder also, how many kids have been suffocated at the hands of those hard plastic masks with the ONE elastic band that went around the head and had a staple on both sides on the mask?.....LOL
I also remember taking a brown paper sack, drawing pictures and coloring on it to make my "goodie" bag. I thought I had hit the big time when I got this transparent, floral, plastic shopping bag with handles.
Please, with that bag I was pissin in tall cotton and no one could tell ME that I wasn't stylin...ha ha ha ha, Prada, what?
One thing that has not changed over the years is the existence of good candy
and bad candy.
Now again, I was not a huge candy freak as a kid and if you know anything about me, you already know that I can be a little "odd" but I liked those peanut butter chews that no one else liked...lol...those were almost the only Halloween candy that I ate. The "good" candy made it's way to mom and dad's work via their lunch.
Maybe it's me, but the one thing I will NEVER understand about Halloween is this:
It may take one of you parents to explain to me the point of taking someone who has no teeth and can't say "trick or treat" out candy hunting on Halloween. It seems to me that since babies can't eat candy and it's more than likely mom and dad will eat it, why parent's don't just go to the store and buy their own damn candy versus using that innocent baby as some kind of decoy, sugar seeking magnet. How man babies at two or three months old will remember being placed in a costume and toted from house to house in search of that sweet treat. Funny thing is that the trick is usually in the bottom of that costume when the parents get home and take that silly looking thing OFF of that baby. What lays at the bottom I'm sure does not smell like
Actually, I don't mind Halloween now that I'm an adult, the kids trick or treat at my house and it does give me the chance to see what the neighborhood kids come up with from year to year and although I still don't understand it, the babies do look really cute. Halloween this year should go off without a hitch as long as I don't see one of these
at my doorstep asking for ANYTHING!!!! Oh and what am I going to be for Halloween? Home. Handing out candy like many of the other grown ups in my neighborhood but if I were going to dress up this year, I'd look a little something like this
So, you tell me:
1. What was your most memorable childhood Halloween experience?
2. What are you doing THIS year for Halloween?
Most of all, keep it fun and keep it safe, Happy Halloween to all of my friends and thank you for just being you.
