Selecting Treats for the Older Tricksters

Now that I've decided which treats to give the little darlings, it's time to figure out what to do with their parents. This is tough. Just what do you hand out to a thirty-something balding guy standing on your porch decked out in his Sunday-best wife-beater t-shirt that doesn't quite reach his belly-button? And no, that's not his costume. He's the dad thrusting a Spec's liquor sack under your nose with one hand, juggling Pabst Blue Ribbon and a Marlboro with the other, and easing himself into your foyer while you're complimenting his kid on her creative costume made out of used trash bags.

I know. A restraining order.

Great idea. We're lucky, I guess. We live out so far, we haven't had a trick or treater in 12 years. Happy Halloween!

Or maybe a toothbrush? :)

This is precisely why we turn off all the lights and hide in the bedroom every Halloween! Although it's better since we moved to a hill. People aren't as willing to work for their candy these days.

How about a free sample of the good old Hot Shot. (In our neck of the woods that is an electric shock devise to get cattle to move through the chute.) :::ZAP:::
