Every year I stock up on Halloween candy. You know, for the kids. The trick-or-treaters. The ones who knock on my door in their cute little costumes yelling Trick or Treat, and holding their bags out for Hallowe – OK, I’m lying. In the 12 or so years I’ve lived in my neighborhood, ZERO children have rung my doorbell in search for Halloween candy.
ZERO.
Why?

Because, though my gate is unlocked on Halloween, I’ve never left a sign telling them so.
I do it so I can – With a teensy bit of regret (‘cause my hips, yo) – Eat all the Halloween candy. And I buy the good fun size shit.

You know, for them. But it’s really for me. But I say it’s for them. Because it just sounds better than saying I purchase $40 worth of Halloween candy just for myself. I mean – Shit – What would the neighbors think of those chocolate covered double fists I’m shoving in my mouth every two seconds?

I gave you a recipe, but you don’t have to follow it. If you prefer covering every available surface with a candy bar – Go for it.
Digging the sparse look? I don’t approve, but this is America – You are free to exercise your chocolate right.
