this is halloween: 2
[Day 3 of 31 Days of Halloween: I forgot to post yesterday's so I'll post two today]
Five things that have no right to be given as treats:
(Based on my actual childhood traumas)
2. Peanuts in the shell.
3. Last year's Christmas candy.
4. McDonald's gift certificates.
5. Melted chocolate bars.
I'm sure you all have something to add to Lynn's list. Me, I only have one thing to add. A Jack Chick religious tract.
Nothing says "Happy Halloween" like a cute little comic book with pictures of cute little kids in cute little Halloween costumes, and one of those kids gets hit by a car and dies, all because he liked to go to haunted houses and get free candy.
There are many other ways to be come the scourge of the neighborhood on Halloween. None of them are as bad as handing out Chick tracts, but at least the kids could get a laugh out of those.
There is nothing funny about hard-boiled eggs in your Halloween bag. Nor boogers:
The worst thing I've ever gotten was a tissue with boogers in it. I was so disgusted. I washed my hand for twenty minutes.”
Of course, there's always the razors in the apples. That's gotta hurt.
