Whither Halloween?

Awww, thanks for the welcome back, my sweets. I feel lurved, and I lurve you all back. And I hope I will find the fortitude to stick around for a while.

I have to say that Halloween was a disappointment. For the first time in many years, I bought candy to give out and turned on my porch light. Had one, count 'em ONE, trick-or-treater. What, have the "OMG! Someone Might Kidnap/Poison/Molest/Permanently Scar My Child!" Safety Police finally won? Or is it just parental apathy? It kinda sucks. Or maybe it's just where I live. Or maybe it's because it's been so cold at night here that the kids all said "Screw this!" and went to the mall instead.

Dammit, that means I have to eat all this candy. I've got good stuff, too! Reese's. Snickers. Milky Ways. Tootsie Rolls. I'm gonna overdose on chocolate. Urp.

I only had one family (three trick or treaters, but they were all baby cousins) come to my house, but my excuse is that I live in the sticks, not parental apathy.

Should've asked the oldest if he was Ozzie Smith (dressed as a Cardinals player) and watched the confusion commence. He's 8, wouldn't have a clue.
