Trick or Treat

It's Halloween, and I made the mistake of shopping for candy when I was hungry. We've got a small mountain of good candy to give away: Twix, mini Snickers and Kit Kats, candy-coated Hershey's kisses, Mounds (maybe my favorite candy bar), M&Ms, and Butterfingers. This year we're discontinuing our usual practice of keeping two bowls of candy; instead of keeping a bowl of good candy for the cute little kids and a bowl of those cheap peanut-butter chews for the teenagers without costumes, we're giving everyone the good stuff this year. It's not that we've gotten more charitable towards the thug teenager crowd. Rather, this year we're just not feeling energetic enough to differentiate.

I'm hoping we don't get too many trick-or-treaters of either variety. A positive side bonus to spending probably too much money on good candy is that I get the leftovers.
