This year I bought more Halloween candy than I ever have. Why? Because I had huge hopes that hoards of little children in dragon costumes and princesses with wands would be stopping by to say, "Trick or Treat!" You want to know what I got? A wayward little lemon and a skittish ninja. That's it. So now I have a barrel of chocolate that is haunting me. I have hidden if from myself three times this morning already. The problem is that I was blessed with a tremendous sense of smell... no matter where I put that darn bowl, I can smell it!!! And I am so telling you that my mid-section does not need twelve pounds of "fun size" anything!
