Subject: Candy Galore
It’s Tuesday evening and Tabitha comes bouncing out of her room with a carved pumpkin. “Happy Halloween! We need to go buy candy to give out to little trick or treaters!”
“Maybe we should get tricks. No one ever gives tricks anymore.”
“Yeah, we could go to one of those joke shops and stock up on little magic tricks and the like.”
“Candy! You can’t forgo the candy! Do you think you could find a joke shop open now before tomorrow?”
“Yeah, my favorite part of Halloween is eating the left over candy.”
“As long as you don’t stop answering the door so you can keep it all to yourself.”
“What kind of candy did you have in mind? No Mounds, I hate Mounds.”
“Take 5 bars!”
“Take 5’s are good. M&M’s are always a safe bet too.”
“Or, how about some of those mint Aero Bars?”
“Those are imported though. They’re like $2 a bar. I don’t like these kids that much.”
“Candy Candy Candy!” Billy jumps up and starts running around the room. “Candy Candy Candy Candy!”
“Billy want some Candy?” Sara says, grabbing a Hershey bar that’s been in the fridge and waving it at Billy.”
“Candy Candy Candy Candy!”
“Anyhow, while mint Aero Bars are awesome, I think we’ll have to go with something more conventional. We could just get a variety pack.”
“We could get a whole bunch of different type of M&Ms. Regular, dark chocolate, peanut butter, etc.”
“That’d be cool. Hey, what ever happen to crispy M&Ms?”
“Hmm, I dunno. I haven’t noticed them anywhere. That’d be a question for one of those chocolate blogs.” Sara glances at the computer, and Billy uses that moment of distraction to grab the chocolate.
“Candy Candy Candy Candy!” Billy sits down and starts unwrapping the chocolate bar and eating it. “Get some M&Ms, and a variety pack. That should cover all our bases.”
“Make sure you get enough though. You wouldn’t want to go through what we went through last year.”
“That’s when Tab was giving away anything she could find in the cabinets because we ran out of candy? You should’ve seen that poor kid’s face when he got a handful of Taco Bell sauces. Priceless!”
“Sure, until the next day when we tried to have lunch and realized she’d given away just about every condiment we had.”
“We couldn’t just turn away the kids!”
“You know, some people actually just give away money.”
“Money. Bah Humbug!”
“Halloween just isn’t Halloween if every little kid doesn’t have a massive sugar rush.”
“Amen to that.” Billy says, throwing away the Hershey wrapper.
“And every big kid too.”
