We love Halloween. Love it.
This year we decided to go to Richmond and visit some friends for this great holiday. We had a great pre-celebration party the night before Halloween. And I even won the arm wrestling competition. Fair. And. Square. Promise.
So Halloween day comes along and we all get dressed up in our costumes around 3 PM, just to make sure we got maximum use out of the holiday. Of course. As we're all hanging out on the porch, taking pictures of our awesome cosutmes, a group of kids walk up to the door. Kids? What are they doing out? Ohhhhh. Trick-or-treaters. Yikes.
Uh-Oh. In all the shenanegans of the day, we forgot all about trick-or-treaters. There wasn't a stitch of candy in the house and we all looked like deer in headlights. For a split second, I almost gave the peanuts I had stolen from Delta for my flight attendant costume - but that would have sacrificed the costume. Our other option was the beer in TB's stein - but somehow that didn't seem appropriate. Eventually, we had to send the trick-or-treaters away empty handed. Sorry guys.
Perhaps next year we'll embrace trick-or-treaters along with our costumes.
