Halloween. I've got a scary skull ninja and an adorable scarecrow living at my house. I can't wait for the trick or treating. Last year, I gave out stickers. I don't think we got anyone over the age of 4 at our apartment house, so these were a big hit. I didn't see anything wrong with it. Mike came home from work and saw the little bowl of stickers, and said "What? We're the house giving out STICKERS? And no candy? I can't be that house."

He vowed to make things right this year. I said, if you want candy, you need to go get some. I like being the healthy and wholesome house, even if it's the healthy and wholesome, covered with toilet paper, house.

This year we're giving out Play-doh, unless the man of the house gets candy between now and Friday. What do you think? Is candy the only acceptable offering to the trick-or-treating gods?

Why not just give out brussels sprouts? Or tofu-candy? Or whimsical figures made of straw?

Kelly suggested giving out the (used) strofoam peanuts she pulled off her school project.

I ask again, what's wrong with playdoh?

And again, playdoh is just as good as sandpaper, power-steering fluid, or wasa crackers.
