Halloween Growing Up
Monday, October 31, 2011
I was sitting here thinking about all the candy I love and how much I loved Halloween. There was this one house where you had to go inside-try that nowadays. The owner took your picture with a polaroid, gave you cider and donuts while you were there and then as your parting trick or treat gift, gave you a toothbrush. They were dentists. We had another dentist on our trick or treat route. The house was at the top of a long driveway. I went there one year and never went again. Guess what they gave out? TOOTHBRUSHES!!!
Favorites: sweet tarts, houses that gave out little bags filled with an assortment of candy, three muskateers, TURKISH TAFFY (nom nom), anything sour. I'm fixating on turkish taffy. Vanilla was my favorite. You could freeze it then smash the heck out of it but I didn't like it that way.
Okay, I've got to go do something that'll keep my mind off sweet delicious fattening things.
