The city of Conway decreed that trick or treating would occur last night, and so it did. I decided to wear my wrestler outfit – tights, boots and a Champion tank top – while I was handing out candy. D convinced me not to wear the luchadore mask because it would frighten the kids. Out of nowhere, she decided to dress up in the Pocahantas costume that she bought years ago but never wore. It was great! One little girl was also dressed similar, and spent a minute or two talking about the ins and outs of their different costumes.
All in all, it was a lot of fun. Because of our position near a main road but off it a little, we got a fraction of the traffic that was going on 50 feet away. As is typical, I way overbought on the candy. We’ll try to remember this lesson for next year and scale appropriately. We were led astray by predictions from the neighbor across the street, whose big house actually has a front door on the busy street even though their driveway is across from ours. Live and learn, we’ll know better. I had a hoot dressing up and hopefully we’ll do it again next year.
