What a Halloween! The alternative title for this post is “Yes sir, yes sir; three bags full.”
Stella has a toy dancing death’s head with red flashing eyes that sings “Another one…” as it dances (at least until the batteries run low); the kids loved it. For a while in there, I set my digital piano on its Church Organ sound and improvised stuff that sounded like an old scary movie.
And as for the alternative title, I’ve never, ever seen so many kids come by the door for Halloween! We must have had between 50 and 100 kids, all duly escorted by families, and we used up essentially all of three bags full of candy. I hope the kids eat their fill in the coming week and don’t get sick; stuffing candy is part of what Halloween is about.
Out of candy at last, we turned off the light and shut the door… and still they came and knocked! I wonder if it has anything to do with the state of the economy.
