I enjoy trick or treating. But there comes a time when OTHER people think that it's inappropriate for you to continue trick or treating because you're "too old".
I personally believe that that is a myth perpetuated by the lazy people that don't want to buy enough candy for the entire neighborhood.
Halloween is (just about) tomorrow, and I'm conflicted.
Do I go out and beg strangers for candy while pretending to be a fictional character, or do I do the "adult" thing and hand out candy to the greedy little children?
Now, I can understand where some people are coming from. There comes a point in time when certain people just need to stop. Imagine looking through your peephole expecting some cute little costumes... and instead feasting your eyes upon this:"Quick honey, get the gun, I'll hide the children."
Now imagine looking through the same peephole, after firing a few warning shots at the previous visitors, and seeing this:
Nowhere NEAR as bad, right?
So what do I do? Do I revel in my last Halloween as an "adolescent"? Throw caution to the wind, and blow chunks from too much candy?
Or do I sit by the door, weeping over the fact that instead of gathering candied goodness from my neighbors, I'm giving a bowl of it away to selfish kids?
In my spiteful, jealous nature I could easily give only one piece to the kids.
Or I could just give away the little flashlights we have, and save the candy for myself.
But would that be fair?
Would I end up like this?I've always wanted a tan. It could work for me.
What do YOU think I should do? To treat, or not to treat?
or beat up kids at my door and steal their candy? <------ I like that one. You decide! Vote in my poll in the sidebar!
