It's Gone!

Hear me shouting Hallelujah!!-- all the Halloween candy is gone!

I hear stories about peoples' children who actually have to throw away candy out of their Halloween bucket, or pillow case as the "case" may be, the following year because there is still some in there; I don't know who these people are and what they have done with their children to create such amazing non-sugar craving creatures, but I admire them in some weird way. I am not one of them, I also was not one of those children. I think that maybe these people let their kids go out for multiple hours and collect treats from many, many, many houses. I think that maybe they stay out way past 8:30 when all the neighbors are unloading what they have leftover on the few remaining smart kids, who have convinced their parents of just one more street, or the parents have let them run loose with the curfew of home before 9. They are still traversing the neighborhood with the remains of their costumes hanging off them in some form, so you can't really tell what they dressed up as in the first place getting the huge load!
