stolen halloween!

I totally stole this from Sheri & SuZan. It’s funny though so work with me. Since I live in a house where the kids are officially (according to several older folks I know) getting too old to trick-or-treat (the 15 year old is still going with friends because she wants to, dammit) it struck a chord this year. Heh. (go here for an understandable (she’s good, really) lesson on where trick-or-treating got it’s start)

YOU KNOW YOU’RE TOO OLD TO TRICK-OR-TREAT WHEN…

10. You get winded from knocking on the door.

 9.  You have to have another kid chew the candy for you.

 8.  You ask for high fiber candy only.

 7.  Someone drops a candy bar in your bag and you lose your balance and fall over.

 6.  People say “Great Boris Karloff Mask!” and your not wearing a mask.

 5.  The door opens, you yell “Trick or…” and can’t remember the rest.

 4.  By the end of the night you have a bag full of restraining orders.

 3.  You have to carefully choose a costume that won’t dislodge your hair piece.

 2.  You’re the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.

 and the number one way you know you’re too old to go trick-or-treating…

  3. In that case, my 4 and a half year old is WAAAAAY too old to be trick-or-treating. I swear, that kid has a thimble for a bladder. *sheesh* 😉 Thanks for the chuckle. Happy Halloween, Twinnie!!
