10 Things That You Shouldn’t Give At Halloween

I read this on the web today and it’s true. I remember when I used to go trick or treating and there were some things you just didn’t want to get from anyone. Behold the list of stuff that stinks to get in your Trick or Treat bag. Toothbrushes Dentists and orthodontists should not be allowed to celebrate Halloween if they’re going to get all tooth doctory on us. Do not bring your work home with you, folks! We all have a personal responsibility to brush, and maybe some of us will forget, but your complimentary bristles on a stick (instead of a Snickers) will not help us remember. It will make us despise you and your trade. Raisins Little boxes of stuck-together shriveled globs are not what little kids schlep around the neighborhood for all night. When they say trick-or-treat, they want candy that will rot their teeth, not wrinkled grapes. (Using an empty box as a kazoo-like instrument, though, is kinda fun.) Candy Corn The most polarizing candy of all. The fruitcake of Halloween; it just never goes away. If you love them, fine. But don’t subject the rest of us haters to the sickeningly sweet triangle that tastes like neither candy nor corn. Smarties and Necco Wafers These chalky candies are supposedly “fruit-flavored,” but no fruit I know tastes like dust — and makes everything eaten after taste like dust, too. Dum Dum Lollipops Usually, foods on a stick are yummy (corn dogs, ice pops), but Dum Dums just can’t be included on that list. Not even if they were breaded and deep-fried and served at a fair. Apples Long before “poisoned candy” scares, evil people were handing out apples instead of candy on Halloween. This disappointing “treat” is the main reason to avoid unwrapped food while trick-or-treating. Tootsie Rolls It looks like chocolate and sort of smells like chocolate, but the mini brown tubes are not real chocolate. They taste like watered-down chocolate, and have a chewy texture that will strip the fillings right off your molars. Miscellaneous, Wrapped Hard Candies Halloween is supposed to be a holiday for young people, not senior citizens who suck on hard candies all day. Something about the strawberry-shaped strawberries, gold-wrapped butterscotch, and peppermint feels past the expiration date. (These usually get set aside for Granny.) Laffy Taffy I do not laffy when I get these. I sobby. I get depressedy. Because it gets all stucky to my teethy and doesn’t even taste that goody. Anything Fun-Sized Who started calling it this? Since when is one bite fun?! Give us the rich houses with the sprawling driveways and full-sized candy bars any day. Portion control doesn’t need to start this young. Have a safe and happy Halloween!

Vacation Wishes

I thought I would share a personal picture with you that was taken on my last vacation. Remind me never to wear white while there is a brisk breeze blowing. I would love to take all of you with me the next time I go on vacation, of course, I would need all the other phone a mommies to come with me, because, let’s face it. If I took everyone, there is no way I could keep my eye on all of you. I hope you are have a glorious day where ever you are, and that you are happy and healthy. Love you all, Mommy Liz
