Well, we canvased the neighborhood and the facts are as follows...
-We hit more houses this year than ever before. Longer legs and the high fructose corn syrup siren's song seemed to motivate the walking despite the lack of naps.
-Storm Troopers do NOT wear tennis shoes. They prefer brown flip flops.
-The Baby Ruth is completely absent from the candy haul this year. I am severely disappointed.
-A black cat missing her headband ears is still cute with eyeliner drawn whiskers.
-When you are cute and have curly hair and are wearing an Alice in Wonderland costume, people will give you more candy than your Storm Trooper escort. Honest. I saw it happen at almost every house. (World, Lucy DOES NOT need more candy. I know she's cute. I know she has freckles abundant and that she smiles at you in a way that makes life worth living but if you keep giving her sugar, I will send her to live with YOU.)
-But somehow the Storm Trooper pulled in a full sized candy bar and Alice only had, well, twice as much candy.
-Following the lead of some lawmakers, the child with the most candy will be more heavily taxed than the one with the least.
