inventor of trick-or-treating:
how does one come up with such an amazing idea?
knock on doors, demand food and give no payment?
all hallow's eve circa 1989
i was 6 and 1/2 and rocking the vampire look
jank and i reminisced about our childhood halloween adventures last nite.
we declared the best part of the whole affair to be post t-or-t'ing.
y'know, when you dump all your candy on the floor and take stock.
and organize it according to shape, color, candy type, likability....
(please tell me i wasn't the only kid enjoying the sorting process a little too much)
jank said the best part for him was bartering with his sisters.
"i'll give you 3 butterfingers for 4 reese's"
i'm sure he was scamming them... he loves to tease those two.
we wish everyone a safe and successful nite!
success for us is getting kate to hold still while we paint her face....
we did a test run a few nites ago and it went well.
here's to hoping!
