Ya Got Any Candy?
Last night we were
walking around the neighborhood looking at Halloween decorations.
A car stopped beside us
and what looked like a 14-15 year-old kid with no costume on sticks his head
out the rear, passenger side window and asks, “Are you still giving away
Now, I’m sure this is
just me, but when kids hit about 12 that’s it for the Halloween, door-to-door,
Trick-or-Treating exercise. It’s funny when adults do it with their friends and
neighbors, or college kids doing it for a party, but there’s about a 4 or 5
year gap where you look like a dope if you’re out begging for candy.
I started thinking that
life is kinda like that; there are some things you grow out of…or should…and
when you continue to do them they just don’t fit.
LOL!! The good thing
though is that if we’re lucky we get to an age at which we can go back and do
silly things and, as an old, or at least older, person, we’ll be seen as eccentric.
Which is why, when I’m
95, I’ll be cruising around with my walker and going up to people and asking,
“Hey, are you still giving away candy?” And it’ll be the middle of summer.
Have a great weekend
and don’t forget to turn you clock back on Saturday night before going to bed.
