A Trick-Or-Treat to Remember

1 Nov

My favorite holiday is Halloween, and not just because women find it as an excuse to dress like prostitutes” — Jim Gaffigan

 1950s halloween

Ahh, Halloween — the second best holiday around! Trick-or-treating was in full swing here in FC. And because it was a true joy, I need to tell you about my favorite trick-or-treaters…

Here’s the story. There are three princesses, each about 5-6 years of age.

Princess 1: Trick or Treat!
Me: Ohh! Look at all of these pretty princesses! Here…choose a piece of candy!
Princess 1: *Shuffles through the candy* Do these have gluten in it?
Me: *picks up a Laffy Taffy* It’s dark. I can’t see the label…Here…here’s some chocolate!
Princess 1: My mom says I can’t eat that because it has dairy in it.
Princess 2: Yeah, I can’t eat that either because it has gluten AND dairy in it!
Andy in the background: Did she just ask if our candy has gluten in it?
Me: Shhhh….
Princess 3: My mom says I can have gluten and dairy, but I’m allergic to cats.
Me: Alright, well…just don’t eat cats.

Jim
I gave princess 3 three pieces of candy. My heart goes out to princesses 1 & 2 who will never experience the true joy of sorting through their candy, getting a huge sugar rush, drive their parents absolutely bonkers and then crash from their sugar high the night of Halloween. …And many nights thereafter!

Happy Halloween!!!
