Earlier in the week I wasn't sure if I'd be home for Halloween so I delayed buying any candy. Wednesday night I decided I would indeed be home most of Friday evening so I ran to the store and bought two whopping bags of Halloween candy for about a zillion bucks.
I raced home from work on Friday- got out a little later than I wanted to- but I got home while it was still light outside. I waited on my couch for the doorbell to ring. I waited some more. Not one kid stopped by. Usually I get about around 20 ghost, goblins, and assorted other costumed youngsters. Not a single one this year. Nada. I turned to Theo and asked if he scared them all away and he looked up with his big eyes as if he was afraid I was accusing him of something horrible.
