Odds and Ends
Hello my fellow children

I wouldn't begrudge them candy. Here's how I do trick or treating.
If you have a costume on and walk up to the door, you get a piece of candy.
If you have a particularly good costume, or run/bike/skateboard up, you get two.
If you are a parent or teen chaperoning, you can have one too.
If your parents drive you up in their car, you get an old apple and a stern warning. The obesity crisis is bad enough here and dammit, you should have to walk to earn your candy at least. Go with your friends if it isn't safe to go alone!
Granted, it turned out to be a moot point here because of the shooting here a few days ago... no one came out in my town.
