HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Let's just be real today and eat whatever the heck we want, shall we? It's better to just allow yourself the fun and belly enjoyment of eating all your kids' candy after they go to bed. I've been hearing of something called the "candy tax" where the parents eat 30% of the candy as a reward for taking the kids out. I think that's stupid. I think we should get at least 95%. Especially when our kids are under age 6...they aren't really doing most of the work tonight, we are. We have to walk them, and eventually their over tired bodies, bounty and miscellaneous costume pieces up and down some dark ass streets in less than desirable weather while some punk middle school kids are jumping out at us in those god awful SCREAM masks.
The 30% is sounding pretty crappy right about now, isn't it? Take it all. Give the little gremlins whatever it is you allow them to eat on Halloween night (we're dumb enough to let them eat themselves silly) and then you eat the rest. As much as you want. Let the caramel dance it's way down your throat, gloriously pick the pink bubble gum particles out of your teeth, do whatever you want. Candy is essentially calorie free on Halloween, right? Right.
The catch to this EAT ALL THE CANDY campaign? Oh, ya know...nothing too big, I'll see you November 1st.
