Luckily I won't run out of water to arm my squirt gun
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

If you don't approve of their costume, just close the door. That's what I'd do. :-b


Or better yet, use candy as a rating system.

If someone comes with something really creative, give them a few extra bars. If some clown teenager shows up in regular clothes, give him a half-eaten Snickers.


i knew this was the place to go for all of my trick or treating woes ;-D

Do you live close to Don Mills? Some little kid just stuck his tongue out at me after getting one box of smarties. punk 2 year old. :-t

Thank God for Tuborg.


I have no idea where Don Mills' house is. :-)

With the last group of kids there was a parent also dressed up. Am I right when I say that this does not give him the right to have his own personal candy bag and recieve his own personal stash of candy? As soo as you reach puberty you need to give up this trick or treating.

Mook, I'm drinking too (Otter Creek Oktoberfest).
I'm also wearing my Scooby-Doo costume. I actually scared one little girl. Watching her sprint to her father and hug his leg was priceless.

You know what's interesting? Ten years ago, the neighborhood I lived in was teeming with trick-or-treaters, but for the last, oh, seven years I spent Halloween at home, there are no trick-or-treating kids. Not a single soul. I suppose it's because all those trick-or-treating kids were my age and now, we're grown up, have a career, and go to Halloween parties instead of going trick-or-treating. But I just find that worth noting. As a result, I don't stack up on candy. If the rare circumstance comes where a kid comes looking for candy, I'm giving them coughdrops!

I had a few obnoxious ones too but had a couple of raging strobe lights blasting the front porch which seemed to knock them off their game a bit.

A couple of junior high aged boys said 'That's making us nauseous' and I said 'That's the whole idea' which they found amusing. I should have tried to sell the strobe lights to them. I hope I don't give MrsAcidRock a migraine w/ them...

if you enjoy eggs splattered all over your house, i'd say that's a great idea.

That's fine with me, as long as they don't mind dodging BB Gun bullets.
