Stealing kids candy

It's only 8:52 in the morning, and having already stole into my kids's Halloween bag I have a sugar buzz to beat all. Mmm, musketeers, snickers, smarties... Washing it all down with some Coke too. Anyone else guilty?

We overbuy our own giveaways. Last night I had three Tootsie Rolls, three Kit Kats, two Reese's Sticks, several of those chocolate things with the hazel nuts in 'em, some Junior Mints. Alas, no one seems to have Smarties any more; that sucked.
These were all those fiendishly named "fun-size" treats. Seven Junior Mints in a box? How the hell is that fun?
But you're right, nothing says Halloween like 1000 empty calories in less than 20 minutes, followed by walkign around the house until midnight. Scary!

Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.

Yeah, whoever heard of seven Junior Mints to a box? At least with 3 kids, that becomes 21. And whatever happened to getting full-sized candy bars like when we were kids? And whatever happened to Pixie Stix? Man, there was nothing like cuttin' off the top of that big Pixie Stix straw, leaning your head back, and lettin' all that sugar come rushing down in one big gulp!

We stopped by one house where they were passing out the KING SIZE of everything - ya know, 4 peanut butter cups, or 8 sections of Kit Kat, or 4 Twix bars. It was worth going to twice, but in keeping with the "going all out" thing, they also had all kinds of creepy sounds and decorations, which really freaked out my kids (4 and 2), so we passed on seconds.

My kids are so brainwashed that they started putting aside the candy that they knew that Dad was going to "confiscate" anyway .
Of course they got enough to last until nex Spring anyway.
