Halloween night, I stayed home with Punkin while Hubby took the littles out trick or treating. Normally, we all go, but this year, Punkin was still a bit under the weather this morning and we decided it would be best if she stayed home.
As my little racecar driver, tiny glitter fairy, and my man with an "S" on his chest pillaged the neighborhood, I frittered around the house getting things done. By the time they got home, dinner was just about ready and waiting for them.
We continued to answer the frequent "ding-donging" of our doorbell before, during and even after dinner. At one point, I was checking my email when the doorbell rang. That's when it hit me -- no, not the doorbell, an idea!
Email trick or treating!
I quickly sent out a dozen or so trick or treating emails, grinning at my own ingenuity. Hell, *I* thought it was funny, and really what harm could it do?
Let me tell you about what I received in responses:
One *subtle muffles heard within, but door does not open*
One request for a trick, a juggling trick! A piece of cake for me, and I got some Whoppers in return.
One person "BOO'd" me (with rather large and colorful font, I might add)
One person broke into her secret stash of chocolate for me when she ran out of toothbrushes!
One virtual doorbell didn't work, and I had to stand there with my face pressed against the glass FOREVER!
One person had me trade a chocolate snack cake for her (imaginary and fat free) full-size Snickers, Kit Kat, AND Butterfinger. (Score!)
One person was so very generous, telling me to watch my step and dumping the whole bowl of candy into my sack.
Another person offered me coffee, donuts, and a buncha candy, some of which was chocolate. I also got an invitation to come on in and party!
And, as always happens on Halloween, there were several places where I did not receive an answer.
All in all, it was a lovely haul.
I hope you all had a terrific Halloween! I know I did!
Now, if you'll excuse me... I have to sort through my stash...
