#33. Halloween Candy
Sunday, October 07, 2018
The Halloween candy has been bought and hidden away carefully so that DH does not know it is there. I forget it's there too.
In addition to the small versions of the popular brand named candy, I added in a few other options: some small bags of popcorn and a few protein bars.
We usually only get the kids who live on our cul de sac, with our doorbell ringing maybe 4 or 5 times at most. The little ones come accompanied by their dads, who often appreciate the popcorn, because they have not eaten dinner yet.
It always works out that there is way too much candy left over. My DH likes that - and he will treat himself to a couple of pieces each night for as long as it takes to finish it up.
I, on the other hand, want that leftover candy OUT of the house. When I was teaching at elementary schools, it was always a simple matter to dump the candy in any faculty room.
One year when I was teaching at the community college, I took all the leftover candy down to the cafeteria, and put it on an empty table that was right next to another table filled with about 12 students - all male. I went over to the guys and announced to them that the pile of candy on the table next to them was free for the taking.
You never saw a table clear so fast, as they all rose up and went to the nearby table to grab up pieces for themselves. That huge pile of candy disappeared within seconds. And of course they began to eat it immediately -- even though it was 10 am.
I do love college kids!
