Please forgive any dual posts. Wordpress is not liking me today. My first attempt did not go through.
Ah, October 31st. It means it’s time for me to go through those Ziploc bags on my bottom shelf full of all that candy from all the previous holidays and classroom parties of the past year. Lollipops, hard candy, Laffy Taffy, and all sorts of other orthodontic nightmares which I won’t eat. In other words, no chocolate. Don’t get me wrong. I keep a steady supply of chocolate in my house, but it’s placed up high on mama’s prime shelf and it certainly hasn’t been there for months on end. But tonight, we restock.
Now, don’t go thinking I pilfer all my kids’ Halloween candy. But I admit, they’ll have a few less Snickers, Kit Kats, and 100,000 Grand bars by the time I finish “inspecting” their haul. I consider it the Mom Tax. I need it for tomorrow when National Novel Writing Month – NaNo for short – begins. Nothing like a good dose of sugar on the way to 50,000 words in one month. Hopefully it won’t translate into 50,000 extra calories. I suppose I could dance it off. Like with the Thriller dance. Yeah, that’s it. Enjoy the video (I hope it shows up) and pass the candy corn. Happy Halloween!
