    What am I going to do with all this candy?

    Well, I only had a ninja, a fairy and a few other assorted kids stop by. I bought all this candy just in case. What am I going to do with all that candy? I suppose I could eat it (good thing I bought stuff I liked) or I could have a DC sugarfest at the range.
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    Always buy what you like. Eat it, or save it for next year's trick or treaters. Candy doesn't go bad.

    If you lived in South Texas you would have had about 3000 trick or treaters

    Sounds like a good use of bandwidth to me.

    My neighbor had that problem last night...too much left over.
    Soooooooo, trusting mankind to do its job, he saw a group of about 4-5 older kids coming down the street. He put his left over stuff in a big bowl and set it on a chair in front of the door.

    Would they each take 1-2, a handful...or what?

    Then he just walked across the street to our house and we watched.
    Yup......5 teens didn't disappoint us...they were in front of the bowl for a while and then left.

    We walked across the street to see an empty bowl...Wow!...the kids didn't let him down.

    Greed is is everywhere, Wall Street, the banks, Congress, and yes...even 5 teens on the street.

    The question is....what did they do with all of the wrappers? Yard confetti?

    We didn't have a single trick or treater at the new house this year, and we bought the normal amount of candy...

    Guess I got candy for a month! I miss the trick or treating though, used to be in a townhouse(had TONS of kids come by). Now, a more reclusive single-family home with a driveway and woods around. Much better place to live, but some things you end up missing I guess!

    Hey, now, you wouldn't pick on him if he titled this "Halloween AFTERMATH!!!!".

    EMP is like the cracker between wine tastings. After reading a bunch of "What if?' scenarios, and "Nice people killed by bad guy" threads, I look forward to an Exactly My Point thread to see what has his drawers twisted up.

    As SGT Hulka would say, "Lighten up, Francis!"

    We've never had any 'trick or treaters' at our house. So we don't even bother buying any candy.......We are hard to find though.......I think it's the big sign that says....GO AWAY!

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
