On my way to the train after work today I was greeted by the sounds of funky music floating from the apartments across the street from my station. I looked up .... Lo and Behold! It was a bee. Ummmmm no it was a BIG BEE. Not exactly right either (BTW, I didn't have my glasses on). I heard "Trick or Treat"!!!! From this huge bee!!!!!
Ok Ok, I put my glasses on and looked up to find a young woman. I'm guessing about 19? Hopping down her stairs and across the street screaming "HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!" at me and then she practically begged me to take some of her candy, though I tried to refuse. One nevers knows about taking candy from strangers....I'm sure I've heard that somewhere before.
Probably got drilled into me as a kid or something.
Anywho, said female bee approached with her plastic punkin and I peered inside to discover she had frosted gummy worms. WELL! I figured I'd better sample them worms just to make sure they were safe for the neighborhood kids, ya know? I mean gosh! What if they had pins in them or were laced with some psychedelic drug. Who better to sample them than someone whose parents grew up in the 60's? Or in my case , I think me growing up in the 80's qualifies me to be somewhat knowledgeable about a few illegal substances (but I'm not telling which ones :P).
Hey, it was the 80's and it's been so long I'm SURE it's out of my system by now. Well, that's my story and I"m sticking to it.
Back to the bee girl. She was happy I'd taken her candy and I was happy as I chewed the ever so sweet and succulent and frosted gummy worms.
My teeth are gonna ache for a week now.
Gawd I Love Halloween!
