All Hallow’s Eve

Filed under: Humor — mlah @ 10:37 pm

so tonight, halloween 2005, the mlah household was giving away my usual full chocolate bar.


when i got back from miami and went to sam’s for my annual halloween buying, i spied an old favorite.

pixie stix.

but not those crappy little paper pixie stix. these babies were a yard long, almost as big around as a dime, and the case was plastic.

i had around 50 beasts of various sorts ring my doorbell. one group was 10 strong, and a little pushy. so they didn’t get pixie stix, just because i didn’t feel like dealing with them. they still got chocolate bars… either kit-kat, crunch, or almond joy. kids don’t like almond joy. i didn’t know. so most of those are leftover.

looks like i’ll have to take care of those.

lots of little kids. all of the little girls dressed as some sort of faerie/princess/pixie …. something or other immediately started using the pixie stix as wands.

pure sugar. and obvious. i doubt 5 of those pixie stix have not been eaten yet. and in myneighborhood, there are 40 little kids bouncing off of the walls!

heh, my plan has worked again!

one little princess started trying to order when i opened the door. she could see the candy and started calling out what she expected. like 2 crunches and kit-kats, and one pixie stick. i wanted top punt her off my porch…. but she was all of about 9. so i just gave her the usual and sent her on her way.

now, a quick aside. moms. if you have to take your kids trick or treating, GET OUT OF THE CAR! i actually saw one mom just driving down the street watching her 10-12 year olds trick or treat. get out you lazy wench. it was a beautiful night here in san antonio.

just gorgeous.

highlights? i had 2 high school cheerleaders stop by at 9pm. real deal. one lives on the street around the corner. they got lots. i feel so ashamed……… 😉

can y’all tell i need a girlfriend?


  1. 1st trick-or-treat halloween, and my daughter figured out that all she had to do was walk up to people and they gave her candy. All the little kids were done by 1900 or so. When the teens came along later to make their demands for candy (many of them didn’t even bother to get dressed up), she ran up to them, held out her hand, and expected them to give her candy.

  2. We hardly ever get a single kid. This year I didn’t see any. And never any cheerleaders.

    I’d have given the cheerleaders some scotch, maybe. (KIDDING!)

  3. Driving your kids trick-or-treating is pure BS. Not only did I walk with Gretel, I took my puppy. And what a great night. And if I ever catch her demanding what candy she wants, she’ll find a ruby slipper up her butt!

  4. Bleh- driving kids? Hah! My mom would walk with us, and she’d even dress up as per my demands. She went as a witch. I loved that. 🙂 She reinforced the “say thank you” in me. Possibly a bit too much–I’d thank my teachers in school when they handed me piles of homework. :p

    Cheerleaders? Damn, mlah. Didn’t you get lucky. :p You old perv, you.

  6. HAHAHAHAHA, you are just evil!!! 40 kids bouncing off the walls…well, at least you got trickortreaters this year. My Halloween was a lot more tame. I doubt 10 kids came to my door all night.
