Holiday Headaches, Part 3

What I wish I would have said. But you know it's the punks that don't bother to put on any semblance of a costume that are the ones most likely to egg a house for being snubbed, so I generally surrender the candy to save myself the post-trick clean-up. That ladybug was a super fun and simple costume. All I did was make wings out of burgundy and black felt and pin them to a black sweater. Add black skirt, red shirt, and some red, twisted pipe cleaners on butterfly clips and there I was. I still have the wings... Hmmmm... (But I don't think I'll paint the ladybugs on my cheeks, again. That was hard to get off last time.)

  1. So cute!!! I always give those teens one piece while I give the kids who try two or three. I give out Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups each year because my neighborhood doesn’t have many trick-or-treaters and I remember what it was like when I was a kid. Finding those cheap candies like the orange and black wrapped brown stuff (who knows what it was?) and feeling like I was ripped off. I always conferred with my friends to figure out the best houses. “Hey, that one’s giving away full size Snickers bars! JACKPOT!!!”

  2. Have to admit – I actually DID say that before. I completely refused to give him candy for laziness. And he did answer my question, “this is my costume – I’m a high school student”. I ignored him as he stood there for about five minutes as I just gave candy out to the other kids until he finally left on his own.
