melissajm: Cover for Between Worlds, by Melissa Mead, from Double Dragon Publishing (Default)
After years of no trick-or treaters, my husband had one before I got home from work. Then, just before we were about to turn the lights off, the new kids from the end of the street rang the doorbell. Mike held out the bowl of full-size candy bars, and we said “Take several.”
:Stunned pause: “Several?”
“Yep. Go ahead. Take as many as you want.”
The little girl took one, and we persuaded her to take 2 or 3. The little boy took a handful, put back two with nuts, and said cheerfully. “Now I have 3. I must’ve had 5!”
They said “Happy Halloween,” and the boy ran down the driveway shouting “Omigod, dad…!!!”
Happy Halloween, everybody. ;)
