Last year, John and I were really excited to hand out candy for the first time from our own place. So we went out and bought a whole bunch of all the good stuff. You know, so we could be the "cool" neighbors. And guess how many trick-or-treaters we had?
Not a single one. I know. We couldn't believe it either.
So naturally this year we were skeptical. I mean we DO live in a new neighborhood where half the houses aren't even built yet. But our house has auto light sensing porch lights that we can't turn off so I picked up a couple of bags anyway. You know. Just in case. And guess what?
Hunh. Guess we'll have to rethink our strategy next year.
ps. I can still hear kids coming up to the door and complaining when they see the sign.
