As most of you know, I love and worship Halloween. And, in recent years, I've been nothing but disappointed by the neighborhood kids and their lack of support for my most favoritest of holidays.
This year, however, was much better.
We actually had about a dozen and a half trick-or-treaters. While that may not sound too impressive to many of you, for me, it was a dream come true. Lately, we've only been getting a handful of TTers, at best. So this amount was all kinds of awesome.
And the kids were into it, too. All but two were dressed up (teenagers). So I was feeling very generous with the candy. I told each kid to take "a few" and everyone seemed to understand what I meant.
Until, that is, one smart alecky kid.
He looked up at me and asked, "what's 'a few'?"
I looked back, "two or three, generally three."
His response? "I see you and I have differing definitions of 'a few'."
I couldn't help but laugh. The kid made my night. I should've given him more candy just for the convo.
Oh, and no, I did not take pictures of my favorite costumes. I'm not going to wind up at the receiving end of a police interrogation as the "creepy guy taking pictures of kids."
Ever heard of this NaBloPoMo thing?
It stands for National Blog Posting Month and is a commitment on the part of bloggers to write a new post each and every one of the 30 days of November.
I've never officially taken part in it, but I did manage to complete it several years ago when I had been blogging every day for about a year and a half straight.
This year, I think I'm going to actually give it a go in hopes that it gives me the motivation I've been looking for to blog regularly.
Think I can do it?
Damn, I hope so. I already signed up. I hate reneging on promises.
