Even allowing for an increase in trick o'treaters from last year's thirty-four (34), the bulk bag of 120 wrapped candies should have been more than enough. The door bell began ringing at 6 p.m.. I dispensed three pieces to each ghost and goblin, but quickly cut back to two apiece as I was answering the door every 5 minutes.
By the end of the evening we had 65 visitors and all the candy was gone. Well, better them than me. (Scientists now claim that sugar is "toxic." Like tackle football, Halloween candy for kids will likely be severely restricted in a few years.)
