Halloween is Thursday. I can remember when I was a kid, I’d go trick-or-treating, not so much because I liked the candy – which I do have to admit, I never turned down, but because I loved to get into costume.
I must have been in the seventh grade or there abouts, when I gave it up.
I was Wyatt Earp, had two “six-shooters” and a phony mustache.
I knocked on this door and a beautiful young lady, probably eighth grade, answered.
She looked me up and down and in distain gave me a piece of candy and said, “Don’t you think you’re a little old to be trick-or-treating?”
It was too dark for her to see how crestfallen I was. I slunk away and hung my six shooters up for good.
Then I “grew up” and found out that adults could get into costume and go to parties and other shindigs which were in reality a lot more fun and less work than going door to door. I get the left over candy from Halloween evening and I never tell a trickor- treater they are too old to have fun.
