Trick or Nuts
Things you don’t want to hear while trick or treating… Sigh…
I’m thinking it’ll be a few more years before I can totally let Jack go out trick or treating without adult supervision. And by then he’ll be too old.
Jack: Trick or nuts!!
me: (yelling from the curb) Jack knock it off!
Jack: Guys look it says take one. It’s a whole bowl! (I see him bending over the large bowl of candy for at least 30 seconds.)
me: Jack! Just one!
Jack: No it means one of each kind!!
Jack: (rings bell…bing bong, waits 2 seconds) Guys!!! No one’s home! (Tears off to the next house. Woman answers door in 4 seconds…oh well, too late)
Jack: Cheap candy here! Don’t bother!
me: Jaaaack, be nice…geez. And wait for your friend!
Jack: I AM waiting!!! (He runs to the next house leaving his friend in the 7-foot-high costume to catch up at his own pace)
me: Want me to hold some? That bag looks like it’s ripping.
Jack: No way, you just want to eat it all.
Jack: And I’m not sharing either!
me: Okay we’re done. Last house!
Jack: Guys, meet me in my mom’s bathroom so we can weigh our loot!
me: Sigh… And like last year, he forgot about the candy the rest of the weekend and hasn’t mentioned it today yet. We’ll find it in a month…
