My Halloween Utopia
Wouldn't it be awesome if instead of those little short people knocking on your door looking for candy, someone knocked on your door and offered you some of their candy? This would be the ideal situation for me. Because all I want is one. Not an entire bag, not lots of different candy, just one or two cups.
My mother was always a door-hog when it came to Halloween, pushing me away from the front door with her body when the bell rang, even going so far as to block the opening by standing in front of the door so not only was I unable to ever give out candy, but I couldn't see the costumes people wore.
Eight years ago I moved out, but the only time candy was involved in door-knocking it was in Florida, and two of those little short people wanted me to buy it from them for some school thing. So I don't ever bother buying candy. But I could really go for a cup or two. Would it be terribly wrong to mug a shortie for that? I wouldn't take ALL their candy...
