For the past three years, since moving, my house has been inundated with trick-or-treaters. The first two, I seriously underestimated the amount of candy needed and had to make runs to the local walgreens for emergency sweets. Last year, I got serious about it and put together little treat bags with candy, little toys and stickers. I handed out over 120 of them.
This year I've been apathetic. I haven't bought any candy at all and I hope to avoid the whole thing. I'm sitting at work right now, and I'm plotting. If there wasn't a dog at home that needed walking, I would probably just not bother going there until late. But now I've got to go home, sneak in the back door, hope all the lights are already off, and sneak around the house using just a flashlight until I can make my escape.
