Eat, Drink, & Be Scary

Quote for the Week

A title like the above can mean only one thing: today is Halloween! Whether you're a vampire or a witch -- or you live with one -- today is the day to celebrate scary -- in a fun way.

As children, we all believed what Steve Almond, author of Rock and Roll Will Save Your Life, said: "Nothing on Earth so beautiful as the final haul on Halloween night."

Ah, yes. Those were the days when we gobbled Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Butterfingers with nary a concern for the number of calories, carbs, and fat grams. Somehow the pleasure in those luscious chocolate candies is dimmed by the realization that we'll have to do 30 extra minutes of exercise the next day to pay for eating 1 tiny little candy. {Sigh} Life just isn't fair, is it?

Smart adults only buy candy they hate so they're not tempted to indulge. If any candy remains after Trick or Treat night, they take it to the office and put it in a big bowl on their desk.

Takeaway Truth

My candy bowl is already placed on the antique wash stand in the foyer, and it contains Butterfingers, Snickers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and Hershey's Miniatures. What can I say? I'm still a kid at heart.
