Honestly, we live far enough out rural, we don't have that problem anymore. But I have grown way crankier and grumpier in those years as well!Every year that we have been in the house I try an encourage the wife not to feed the Hood Rats! We sure don't need the candy in the house, besides it cheaper the day after.
The wife went to those huge ceramic jack o lanterns. I chain them to the house cause they are tempting targets.When we lived in town many years ago, our house had those big stone sides on either side of the front steps. I would carve two huge jack-o-laterns to sit on each one. We had sheets on strings hanging from the trees in the front yard! Many times we had a stuffed scarecrow guy sitting in chair on the front porch or the front yard.
Dayem dude, you live dangerously!My wife spent almost a hundred bucks on candy. She says the kids deserve a big time cause they have been locked up so much.
Tonight I catch her eating candy. Now normally if learned from decades of experience not to get between or mess with the relationship of female and chocolate but tonight I couldnt resist.
I asked, a big time for the kids huh? I thought you got all that for the kids and here you are rat holeing it and downing it like a diabetic with chronically low blood sugar.
Ooooh the look I got. Sheit, she's laying here right now and I swear she is faking her snoring just waiting for me to fall asleep to get her revenge.
